HARARE - One thing revelers, music fans, critics and pundits, as well as other music industry players should expect from a new kid on the block who is currently riding high, is that he is likely to take over the reins of the of the music scene  with a completely different genre.

 South African based Zimbabwean singer, Wayne Jachie is expected to thrill fans when he officially release his album. The Government in 2017 front man will officially launch his album at the City Sports Bar, on Monday April 30 2017.

Born in Zaka and later relocated to South Africa with his wife for 14 years, Memory, whom he dedicated one of the songs "Wakanaka."

Jachie's debut album entitled "Pamusasa the African Parliament," is a jam which was professionally produced by gtBeats in Rosebank in South Africa at Pamusasa studios and in Zambia by Pj Pauls.

The album features Nox Guni of the "Ndinonyara" fame, on the wedding song "Tabatanidzwa."

His music called WanyeMusik, was put together by veteran instrumentalists and engineers from South Africa, Zimbabwe Malawi and Zambia, that includes Hugh Masekela' Malawian guitarist Erik Palian, Zimbabwe's Mono Mkundu, Josh Maat, one time Jays Marabini guitarist, Zambian Pj Paul and George Munetsi of Zahara's Ncandwe yencane fame helped as a vocal director.

Tatenda"The Priest" Matonga, a Roman Catholic priest, a guitarist and musician in his own right, and also Jachie's band member did some vocals on some of the songs, while Bongani Gwenya did lead guitars on "Ndoimbira Zimbabwe." Two songs were also produced by Isheunopa Jere who worked mostly on keyboards.  

The album include cuts such as "Pamusasa," "Kumusha Ndinouya," "Pungwe No Bori," is a song that encourages people to desist from violence and come together to embrace peace and enjoy life. "Wakanaka" is a song about a man appreciating the beauty of his woman.

"Kura" describes a proud father adoring his children, and wishing them the best out of life. "Fambai Naye," was co-written by Magaya Jachie and performed by Tatenda Matonga, "The Priest." The song brings back memories of those whom we once loved, but are no longer with us.

"Chipomapiwa" reminds people to give thanks to Almighty God, after they have received blessings. "Ndofa Zvangu," is somehow a comic. The song is about a desperate man who was wallowing in poverty- that he thinks death is the only way out, but his wife wouldn't have any of it. "Ndoimbira Zimbabwe," is a national prayer for the country. He said he got his inspiration from Zimbabwean traditional music, Tuku music, mbira and afro pop,

"My music has powerful messages about life, hope, trusting in God and love," said Jachie.

He has two daughters, Lucy Akanaka and IpaiChiedza Winnet. Lucy Akanaka is doing grade seven at Runyararo primary in Masvingo.
