Macheso hints on his upcoming album

Sungura ace Alick Macheso has said his upcoming album, likely to be called "Zvaa-zvinhu", will be a well thought out musical project that is set to consolidate his vast experience in music and his growing profile as an entertainer.

The "Madhawu" singer didn't mince his words saying his fans should watch out for a well-planned and explosive album from start to finish.

"The way I see it, my next project is going to be a smash hit album," he said.
Macheso or simply Extrabasso to his fans is not one who likes to blow his own horn, but when he says it then you know you are in for a gem.

Apparently, "Zvaazvinhu" is a slang word which describes anything that is genuinely made or top of the range. It could be a car, a house, a shoe but whatever it is, it got to be classy.

Asked if "Zvaazvinhu" has anything to do with the so-called "Rebels", Extrabasso said the new album was just about great music.
Already fans have had a foretaste of his new songs including "Anebhora Ndiye Anomakwa", a song that's laden with his bass signature tune and syrup-laced lyrics.

The anticipated six-track album is due for release before year-end and he hopes it will silence all his critics following the release of his previous album "Kwatakabva Mitunhu (Kure Kwekure)", a rather lukewarm effort from a man who is known for his thought- provoking and socially conscious songs such as "Madhawu", "Charakupa", "Makandidana" and "Shedia" just to mention a few.

With "Kwatakabva Mitunhu" that did not do well on the charts, Extrabasso suffered another setback after his record label "Last Power" closed shop due to high rentals and other bills.

The Orchestra Mberikwazvo leader said he was going to record the new album under Last Power only after he has put his house in order.
"The talk around that I am in a quandary over the issue of recording is not true. I am still signed with Last Power and the next album will be recorded at the same company.

"The only issue that needs urgent attention is to move the equipment to a new place where it is easily accessible and cheap to run. In Msasa, we had high costs to run the company including wages for the staff, so this time we are moving everything to an afford-able place," he said.
