In a statement on his Facebook fan page, Tuku is said to have poured his heart out in words and music on Hany’ga (Concern).
“Much like all the previous albums, Dr Mtukudzi has poured his heart out in words and music with the assistance of the various musicians who came into the studio and contribute musically to the final collection of songs we now have and call Hany’ga (Concern) in English,” reads the statement.
This is album, according to the statement, is about all the different things that us concern us as people.
“It is concern that pushes us to do the different positive things that we do. Ukashaya hany’ga nechinhu unenge usisina basa nacho, (If you lack concern in anything you do, it simply means you are no longer interested in that particular thing),” reads the statement.
The album touches on topics such as child marriage in the song “Haasati Aziva” to the importance of talking about the significance of building good relationships in the song “Wanza Sorry.”
The album is available now on all the streaming sites costing $10.99 on iTunes.
