Speaking during the interview with this publication following one of the promotional videos that went viral on social media platforms, Mutemachani confirmed that his group has embraced technology as the best mechanism to reach wider audience.

"As a group, we have realised the strength of cyberspace which has the propensity to reach widest audiences and therefore enabling our tireless efforts to receive or analyse feedback," Mutemachani said.

"That video you came across is part of our managerial team's strategies to promote the launch before the actual launch date using virtual platforms. We really opted to both virtually and physically engage with our fans to ensure inclusion of all," Mutemachani added.

"The initial virtual launch will therefore see our group rolling out several live shows and performances, especially during church gatherings and other special events which resonate with our genre," Mutemachani said.
