AWARD-winning Isichathamiya/Imbube group Indosakusa: The Morning Star will on Saturday launch their 12th album at the Hope Centre in Bulawayo.
The album titled Isililo Sentandane will see imbube lovers being treated to live entertainment of the nine-track album at an event that has been dubbed the VIP album launch.
Produced by John Linderman from JLS Production Studios in South Africa, the album has tracks, Izulu Lomdumo, I do I do, Qhude Manikiniki, Sadabula Amazwe, Nansi Lensizwa, Iron Man, KwaMshengu, Imvu Yolahleko, and the title track.
Giving a brief of the album, Indosakusa: The Morning Star founder Oscar Siziba said: “The album is about the lifestyle of people living on this painful earth with a focus on the wailing of an orphan. In Ndebele they say ‘lumhlaba awugcini intandane’, and this simply means that each man for himself.” said Siziba.
He said the messages encompassed within the album are classic as they also dwell on the situations people face in their daily life.
“Our message to people is that ‘always know that on this earth, no one will help you the way you’ll be expecting, so you have to strive and work for yourself and only depend on God who’s the creator of the whole universe.”
Siziba said the album launch will cascade to other areas in the country before it heads abroad.
“After the launch in Bulawayo, we’ll launch the album in different cities and also on social media. We’re also going to launch it in South Africa starting off with Johannesburg and Polokwane before the end of the year.” – @mthabisi_mthire
