Bindura gospel artiste makes a mark

By Tapiwa Machemedze
YOUNG Bindura gospel musician Tafadzwa Ncube also known as Lasper has made a mark on the gospel music scene after hitting 6th spot on national music charts.
Spurred by hit track Mapopoma that featured many prominent musicians and received generous airplay on local television last year, 25-year-old gospel musician Lasper has once again struck the right chord with his latest album, River Jordan, which was released in April.
The title track has become a regular feature on the National FM Gospel music charts.
The young artiste who released a video for the song last week at a time when most artists bemoan lack of recognition, encourages budding musicians to hold on to their dreams.
‘I chose to start with the video for River Jordan because it’s the one featuring prominently on radio and people are loving it. I’m encouraging other artistes to hold on to the music industry and sometimes as an artiste you have to keep pushing to get to the next level. Some of the challenges are lack of shows due to corona, piracy if you say I have discs you hear people saying I have River Jordan already,” said Lasper.
River Jordan is Lasper’s 5th album and the title track written with trials and tribulations such as Covid-19 in mind, speaks about crossing over from troubled times.
The 10-track album also comprises songs such as Eloi, Nherera, Uchafira kuhope and Ndinamatire, among others.
