A Media and Society Studies student with the Midlands State University (MSU) who is into gospel music is set to drop a second album late this year.
The Kwekwe based Gaudancia Shumba burst into the music scene after dropping an album last year titled Grace.
She told Observer Style that she is going to offer something new to her fans before year end.
Though she is yet to come up with tye name of the album she intimated that due to COVID-19 she is going to launch her album through online platforms.
” I am working on a seven track album to be released before year end. It will be a motivational album and appreciating the grace of God which he is continuously giving people in hard times like this.
“We have probably adjusted and excelled with the online advertising and publishing of our songs on youtube and other various platforms,” she said.
To stay relevant Shumba has said she is staging online concerts to entertain her fans.
“Since we are not staging live shows due to COVID-19 i am trying to keep my fans entertained on online platforms though its hard because of high cost of data bundles,” she said.
She said the journey is proving a challenge as artists make a living out of live shows.
Shumba said she cannot access government financial gratuities as she is not yet registered with music union Zimura.
“Financial assistance is given to those registered with Zimura and as for me being new in the industry i am yet to be registered,” she said.
