BARELY a few months after its traditional dance ensemble scooped the top gong in the Chibuku Neshamwari Provincial Dance Competitions, Chipinge Prison has bounced back, this time with a musical project.
The team which calls itself Chipinge Prison Rehabilitation Choir has released a gospel single track titled, “Munhu Chiiko.”
According the chaplin of Chipinge Prison, Edward Bepete, the project aims at empowering inmates that they would be self-reliant when they get out of prison.
“We are empowering them that by the time they return to their communities, they will be able to become self-reliant.
“Also, the project helps them to spread the gospel message since preaching can be done in different forms,” he said.
The choir has a total of 53 songs on hand which shall be released bit by bit.
“We are inviting people to hire this choir to provide entertainment during functions such as weddings, religious gathering and many more,” he added.
The debut track was produced by Simoyi Mhlanga under Mutserendende Movement Studios in Chipinge.
