SUNGURA musician Tatenda “Spannerboy” Pinjisi (pictured) yesterday claimed he has been called back into the music industry through a dream after announcing that he was quitting the industry two months ago.
The musician has since dropped a new album titled Africa Ine Varidzi, which he also said he received in the dream.
Pinjisi told NewsDay Life & Style that although the album — which is the third in his discography — was initially titled Shamhu Yenhubu, he decided to change it following a car crash that nearly claimed his life a few months ago.
“I am back in the music industry after announcing that I was quitting due to depression and insolvency after the accident, but I was called back to the stage through dreams,” he said.
“While asleep, I would dream playing the latest album on stage, hence I followed my dream and came up with this new album. The accident also made me believe that Africa has its maker.
So when I cheated death, I changed the name Africa Ine Muridzi.”
Pinjisi used the dendera sound on the track, Dhikinya, which he said has attracted Sulumani Chimbetu and the two are now working on a collaboration.
The Saina hitmaker reiterated that he was also working with the man of the moment, gospel musician Dalington “Mambo Dhuterere” Mutseta and a Malawian musician, Saint Akazanga on other projects.
