Fireworks are expected when award winning Imbube group Ukukhanya Kwezwe launches its much awaited third album titled Inkubalo on 10 November at Bulawayo Theatre.
Mayibongweinkosi Mdihwa, who is the group representetive, said they are over the moon about their latest album and they have strong belief that it will take them to places.
“This is our third album and we are delighted as a group to have done such an honourable thing and we truly believe that this album is going to open new avenues for us,” he said.
They featured Dr Buselaphi and Gazelimnyama in this latest project.
“In this album we featured Dr Buselaphi (SA artiste), and one of the best guitarists Gazelimnyama and having Buselaphi will broaden our fan base even in South Africa as he is going to introduce our music that side,” he said.
The album launch will take place at Bulawayo Theatre and it will be graced by Indosakusa (The Morning Star).
“We will be supported by our fellow brothers Indosakusa (The Morning Star) who will also grace the stage and everyone is invited to be part of this album launch,” said Madihwa.
He further said the album is mainly addressing the issues of respect, love and unity.
“People should expect a strong message and good music from this album as it touches one of the key topics respect, love and peace,” he explained.
“We recorded this album in South Africa so financially it was straining as we do not have a sponsor, but we soldiered through and we are happy that even local radio stations are doing justice in terms of airplay,” said Madihwa.
They have three albums which include Ngilindela Malindela (2015), Mhlaba Hlangana (2016) and now Inkubalo (2018).
