“I am launching my 13-track album on the 8th of October. The album is titled David and Goliath, which explores various societal issues. I collaborated with two international artists including Jamaica’s Chris Martin, who will also perform at the launch. I am so elated about this development since he is my greatest inspiration. I grew up looking up to him and the idea of us working together is a dream come true. The album also features two local artists. I am excited about it,” said the HKD Boss.

Famed for hits like Cheaters’ Prayer, Martin has confirmed the development from his Jamaican base.

“I am coming to Zimbabwe on 8 October to perform alongside Freeman HKD as he will be launching his album David and Goliath,” said Martin.

Meanwhile, various local artists, including Baba Harare, Nyasha David, Kikky and Trevor Dongo are also billed to perform at the show slated for Alexander Sports Club in Harare.
