SOUTH AFRICAN music sensation, Freddy “Amadamara” Gwala, is preparing to launch his highly anticipated album titled “IParole” in Bulawayo at The Mitre on 7 October.
Gwala, known for his distinctive musical style and powerful storytelling, has promised fans an unforgettable experience. With his upcoming album, the artiste aims to captivate his audience and leave a lasting impression. In an interview with Chronicle Showbiz, Gwala expressed his excitement for the album, assuring fans that they can expect a scorching collection of songs that will not disappoint.
“Fans should expect nothing less than what I am known for “Amadamara”, and get ready for a scorching hot album just like I always do” he said.
The decision to choose Zimbabwe as the launch destination holds great significance for Gwala. He attributes his success and rise to stardom to the support and love he received from Zimbabwean fans throughout his career.
“I decided to launch my album in Zimbabwe because Zimbabwe is my number one country followed by South Africa which made me who I am today. It elevated me and my music to new heights. I have so many fans in Zimbabwe and the love they have for me is what made me choose Zimbabwe as the venue for the album venue” said Gwala.
The title track, “IParole,” tells the story of a man who, after being sentenced to life in prison, returns home to find his wife with another man. The song explores the challenges faced by ex-convicts upon release and the complex emotions that arise from shattered dreams and lost relationships. Gwala hopes to evoke a deeper understanding of the consequences of committing crimes through this powerful track, urging listeners to choose a path of righteousness.
“The message is very clear, committing crimes will bring upon individuals the consequences of the things that I sing about. I want people to know the outcomes of committing crimes and encourage them that they must not commit crimes” said the Tshilamoya hit-maker.
In addition to the highly anticipated album launch, Gwala has expressed his excitement to connect with his fans on a personal level. Describing himself as a “people’s person,” he looks forward to a meet and greet session with fans during the event. The interaction will undoubtedly make the album launch a memorable experience for both Gwala and his dedicated supporters.
“I am a people’s person, and it would make me very proud to have a meet and greet session with my fans” he said.
Gwala said the album comprises a total of ten captivating songs, with an extra bonus track that promises to surprise and delight his devoted fan base. The album is a testament to the artiste’s evolution as a musician and his commitment to producing music that resonates with listeners on a profound level.
Gwala, who has released 18 albums, last dropped an album in 2016. He rose to fame in the early 1990s, when he released his first album “Amadamara.”
