Today’s 5

Music is is many things. It is a universal language which might explain why super beings might be in love with it. Go to the church it’s not enough before a bit of singing. Ancestral spirits cherish the presence of music when they are in company with Humankind. I believe music carries with it the soul of a people. In it we encounter prayers, aspirations, dreams, disappointments of people.  My love for music is extremely local and close to home. It seems my ears are illiterate to foreign languages when it comes to music. I love it when I fail to comprehend English in verbal song.

I have a legion of songs that I converse with at different occasions.

1) Charles CharambaRegera kundisiya

The memory of the song being played live at Rufaro International Conference Centre (A sacred shrine for AFM in Zimbabwe: My mother’s denomination) still rings in my ear. It’s a plea to God or His presence to continue guiding me because a single mini-second on my own I’m gone. The song also carries me through my favorite musician’s hits which are are magnificently connected.

2)Winky DMangerengere

For someone who knows the pain of being uprooted this is the song to go with. It aptly laughs at the mimic people we have become. Mangerengere a Shona term for white people is then given to a song mocking a people who have greatly departed from what really make them human. In our quest for white, we found ourselves hanging and soulless.

3) Tongai MoyoKapuka kanonzi rudo

For a love enthusiast as a subject I had no choice than picking from my childhood best musician. This one speaks of what the animal called love make me feel. The alternate between fear and joy because of what it has caused to people- death, (un) employment, family etc.

4) Hymn 236ELCZ hymnal

Although I am not a full-time belonger to the denomination when I die please tell whoever there to find the song and let it accompany me to the underground. It’s a prayer of surrendering the totality of me to the grace of the heavenly father once again. It shows me what grace is. Grace as a garanteer of all provisions. It calms my pride.

5)Paul Matavire Gomba

For someone that enjoys love scandals, when I heard this after frustrating hours of waiting for a cheaper ride with the unreliable and inconvenient ZUPCO I found joy and joy. A song of scandal. It carries a conversation between father and son in law. Son in law is complaining of the striking similarities between his child and the man nextdoor. The father in law is telling him Gomba (wife’s lover) has no kid so worry not my son. It leaves me thinking of fatherhood and sonship

I am a preacher confused in the constant happenings of life. I have been secretive about inner thoughts. Now I want to flow with them. I want to vomit. The pen is my link to the paper. The keyboard becomes the first step towards you. The internet will sort everything else considering I am not broke.
