Makuyana said the album was themed on honesty and commitment to God.

“The album mainly talks about the faithfulness of God in every situation. It seeks to encourage people to totally depend on God. The songs seek to encourage people to keep on believing in God in every circumstance,” he said.

The 29-year-old musician, who said he got inspiration from the Word of God and his life experiences, composes worship songs that seek to draw people closer to God.

Makuyana added that his forthcoming production was unique in various ways compared to his previous works.

Apart from the title track, the new album is made up of the songs Ndawana Shamwari, Hallelujah, Ndakatengwa Neropa raJesu, Tinayo Hama, Mufudzi Wangu, Tsunga Moyo and Zvivimbiso.

The artiste ventured into music while still at Kuwadzana High School where he was part of the school choir.

He said he started playing the keyboard early in life, with encouragement from his mother.
