AN emerging gospel artiste, Admire Nago (23), who recently released his debut six-track album, Tariro, has urged Zimbabweans to pray for divine intervention so that God can restore normalcy in the country.

The Masvingo-based artiste and Alaz Band front man said he was moved by the current challenges facing the country.

“Looking at the current political and socio-economic challenges facing the country, I realised that restoration lies in God’s hands. If we pray, have patience and hope, God will intervene in dealing with these problems, that include cash shortages and hunger,” he said.

The album carries tracks that include the title track Tariro, a call to citizens to be prayerful, Ngatimire Nesimba, Pasi Pano, Anogara Neni, the hymnal Chinjikano and its instrumental.

Nago discovered his talent while in Form 3 at Dzivaresekwa High 2 and it was nurtured at Alheit High School in Gutu.

His hopes to record came when he joined the Great Zimbabwe University (GZU)’s Electric Band in 2015.

“My greatest hope came when I joined the GZU Electric Band, as a leading vocalist and performed at events including graduation ceremonies. That is where I got the motivation to release an album. I am happy I have made it,” he said.

The promising artiste recorded his album at a backyard studio in Mashava, a mining small town near Masvingo.

A second-year student at GZU, Nago currently works at YaFm as a co-presenter for the programme, Campus Connection, every Saturday morning.
GZU Electric Band director Fanuel Cox Dzinhuwa, aka Cox, expressed hope in Nago’s future in music.

“He has a bright future. I have worked with him very well. He has just taken the right direction and I wish him well in his music career,” he said.
