Mutoko-based Afro-fusion musician Tinofa Edwin Muronzi, affectionately known as Biggerz, has dropped five video songs off his latest six-track album titled Hupenyu Hauna Mugoni.
The album was launched in December last year at a colourful event held at Nyamakwere Lodges in Mutoko.
All the video songs were shot in the black granite-rich Mutoko district.
“Video songs are the only way musicians can lure their would-be followers and fans to watch them, listen to their concepts and get their prowess in arts noticed. It is not easy to produce a video. It is very expensive, not talking of coordinating equipment and costumes among other things. I am happy that the five videos are out and doing rounds on various online platforms. The reception is overwhelming,” said Muronzi.
The huge-framed musician, who has become a household name in Mutoko, has other video songs done in 2014 in Chitungwiza.
His latest videos came off the songs Basa Rangu, Hupenyu, Ivhu Irori, Simudza Mangoma and Dzokai Kuchinyakare.
The talented musician added that his dream is to shoot a video for the song Dutumupengo in Mutare and Chimanimani.
The song is a prayer for families that perished during the Cyclone Idai disaster mostly in Manicaland province.
The Pitching Band leader hailed renowned Mutoko businessman Blessing “Boss K” Kanhema for supporting his music career.
“I am grateful for Boss Kanhema’s generosity; he has contributed a lot in my music career. For me to record these video songs, he was there to assist financially,” added Muronzi.
Kanhema also bought a brand new music kit for Muronzi as a way of empowering Mutoko-based musicians.
Muronzi is also an English teacher and principal at Munashe Private School, a popular learning institution in the area.
