Musindakanzhani releases his new reggae album

Read: 1999

With the release of his latest album, “Phamukhilikhithi”, Victor Nempumbuluni, known as “Musindakanzhani,” has boosted his reputation as a top-class reggae musician. He is gaining popularity among reggae music lovers because of his unique style, which consists of heavy bass sounds, some chopping sounds, and occasional, well-positioned bass.

“The kind of admiration and respect I’m getting from reggae music lovers is really astonishing,” said the resident of Tshififi village. “It makes me feel more grounded as a musician.” He admits that reggae music is a genre that continues to rise above marginalisation in most social circles but added that “we will stop at nothing to create this message-laden music”.

Musindakanzhani’s life took a turn when he decided to become a reggae musician years ago and managed to find – acoustic guitar in hand - the meaning of life within the rhythms and lyrics of his music. He explains that it all started one day in 2014 when he heard songs playing in his mind and realised that he had not heard them anywhere before. “The same songs would also come in my dreams,” he said. “It was like madness, but in a good way because I soon realised that it had to do with a musical calling,” he said.

Today, Musindakanzhani sings about issues and matters that refer to social life. To him, music is life, and his soul is thriving on it. “Music is a form of self-expression, the delivery of constructive messages, and a package of joy and happiness,” he said.

His latest Tshivenda album boasts 10 tracks, such as “Memories,” “Sumbandila,” “Tshelede Dzanga,” “Nwana asi wanga,” and “Ndomuwana.” The album is available in online digital stores.

He says since the release of his album a month ago, his diary is full of bookings for performances as his fans want to see his unique musical talent live on stage. “I perform all my shows live, and that is why people never get tired of watching me on stage. I do a lot of rehearsals to make sure that my fans get the same quality of music that they get from my CDs.”
