The turn of the millennium saw the birth of many gospel musicians like Baba na Amai Charamba, Fungisai Zvakavapano, Pastor G and Kudzai Nyakudya to mention just a few.
However, Apostolic choral music took over before succumbing to the pressure from the ‘urban’ gospel musicians who eventually dominated. Sebastian Magacha, Olinda Marova, Bethany Pasinewako and Blessing Shumba are the new kings and queens of gospel in Zimbabwe.
It seems as if the new generation of gospel musicians are bringing back the old days when instrumental gospel used to top the charts.
