SOUTH AFRICA - Most music fans who thought there is no other genre that could take over House music, Rhumba or ZimDancehall, are up for a big surprise, after South African based Zimbabwean singer, dropped a bombshell that saw him being nominated for four awards at Masvingo Music Awards, officially sponsored by Masvingo based radio station Hevoi FM and other stakeholders, before its official release.

Wayne Jachie's debut album entitled "Pamusasa the African Parliament," is a jam which was professionally produced by gtBeats in Rosebank in South Africa at Pamusasa studios and in Zambia by Pj Pauls. Jachie and his band, "The Government in 2017"will officially launch the album at the City Sports Bar, on Monday April 30 2017.
The album features Nox Guni of the "Ndinonyara" fame, on the wedding song "Tabatanidzwa," which have received two nominations at the Masvingo Music awards for best video and best video producer. He has four nominations at the awards two for video and besr video producer, best male artist and best peripheral artist.

Jachie's showed maturity in his endeavour to produce internationally accepted music he calls WanyeMusik, when he roped the services of reputable instrumentalists and engineers from South Africa, Zimbabwe Malawi and Zambia, that includes Hugh Masekela' Malawian guitarist Erik Palian, Zimbabwe's Mono Mkundu, Josh Maat, one time Jays Marabini guitarist, Zambian Pj Paul and George Munetsi of Zahara's Ncandwe yencane fame helped as a vocal director.

Tatenda"The Priest" Matonga, a Roman Catholic priest, a guitarist and musician in his own right, and also Jachie's band member did some vocals on some of the songs, while Bongani Gwenya did lead guitars on "Ndoimbira Zimbabwe." Two songs were also produced by Isheunopa Jere who worked mostly on keyboards.  

Songs on the album include "Pamusasa," "Kumusha Ndinouya," which both have videos. "Pungwe No Bori," is a song that encourages people to desist from violence and come together to embrace peace and enjoy life. "Wakanaka" is a song about a man appreciating the beauty of his woman.

"Kura" describes a proud father adoring his children, and wishing them the best out of life. "Fambai Naye," was co-written by Magaya Jachie and performed by Tatenda Matonga, "The Priest." The song brings back memories of those whom we once loved, but are no longer with us.
"Chipomapiwa" reminds people to give thanks to Almighty God, after they have received blessings. "Ndofa Zvangu," is somehow a comic. The song is about a desperate man who was wallowing in poverty- that he thinks death is the only way out, but his wife wouldn't have any of it. "Ndoimbira Zimbabwe," is a national prayer for the country. He said he got his inspiration from Zimbabwean traditional music, Tuku music, mbira and afro pop,

"I have done three videos for the album, for "Pamusasa" the title track, "Kumusha ndinouya," a song that talks about the plight of those working or leaving far from their homes. My music has powerful messages about life, hope, trusting in God and love," said Jachie.

Born in Zaka and went to Madondo primary School and Silveira High School before enrolling at Peoples College, where he graduated with a diploma in marketing. He is also a qualified web developer. He later relocated to South Africa.
