Gospel musician Pastor Charles Charamba has finished his musical studies he was under taking with the Zimbabwe College of Music.

The musician was studying a degree in music and was for the past two years busy with his studies leading him to stage limited shows.

In a wide range interview the musician said he will now have time to work since his studies are over.

“I have finished my studies, for the past two years I have managed to get the concept. We are now going to preach the word in various parts of the country and the world,” said Pastor Charamba.

The “Nyika yeZimbabwe” hit maker said though he has been participating in some functions his schedule was tight due to his studies.

Charamba, who is currently ridding high with his album “Pashoko Pangoma”, said he has no plans to release a new album now.

“We have a lot of recorded songs but we will not be releasing them now,” said Charamba.

The musician has been doing well on the local and international market.

On Saturday the gospel couple will be performing in South Africa in at AFM Kempton Park.

Pastor Charamba said they were looking forward to their first ever show in Johannesburg.

“The people in Johannesburg should look forward to a complete Zimbabwean package because I know that a lot of them out there love gospel music from here,” he said.

Charamba added that he had performed a couple of times in Cape Town and it was going to be his first time performing in Johannesburg and he was really looking forward to it.

Over the years, the couple has released albums including Johane 3:16, Vhuserere, Amen, Daily Bread, Exodus, Sunday Service and Verses and Chapters.

They are the record holders as far as gospel music sales are concerned. They are both pastors and both have attained theological training, which enhances their understanding of scripture.

They are well travelled, have toured the UK, USA, and other parts of the world with their music ministry. Their music is presented in both indigenous African and English languages.
