. . . diva homesick
SONGBIRD Cynthia Mare has relocated to the United Kingdom where she is currently working on an English album.
Despite keeping a low profile, the diva says she was busy in the studio putting together a new album in London.
Cynthia said her stay in the Queendom was also part of her rebranding mission, which she believes will pay off.
“I have been taking some time off to rejuvenate so I can come up with new great music. I started working on an English album. It will include the song Dai Zvaibvira in English which I recorded at Red Bull Studios in London.
“By the way, the beverages company has a music label where they help artistes in UK to reach their potential.
“British singer Jessy Ware came through Red bull and recorded her two album there,” she said.
• NEW PROJECTS
As she steps up preparations to launch the album both locally and abroad, the diva has released a single which is doing well on the charts.
“In the meantime, I have a new single called Flava. It’s a slight move away from my usual afro-fusion sound to Afro beats.
“In the song, I’m simply saying ‘I’ve got the flava’. I’ve left it open to the listener to decide what his or her flava is.
“I recorded it in South Africa and it was produced by Mr Kamera. The guitars were played by Brian K.
We shot the video at Palm Estate Harare, directed by Simba Gee.
Joe Njangu was on camera and the equipment was from Media Matrix Media (MMX) and the dancer on the video is Elizabeth Dube with John Cole coming as a choreographer.”
Cynthia conceded that all was not well for her in 2017 and hopes for a better 2018.
“To be honest, I have had some low moments in 2017 but my God pulled me through as he has always done and here I am, still standing
“I am still holding shows in the UK and right now I am in Sydney, Australia. I’ve just been to Bangkok, Thailand. Then back to UK to continue working on my English album and shows.”
• HOME SICK
As the diva continues working on new projects, she also confirmed being home sick.
“I just miss home. I miss performing with my band. And miss my musical friends like Ammara whom I’m really proud of for the success of launching her album, and awards.
“Mostly I miss my amazing supportive family like my sisters Charlene Chiwuyu and Pastor Grace Mapuranga at Victory Church International and my Aunt Justice Charewa who is a Zimbabwe High Court Judge.
“I’m so proud of her. She’s done our family proud and she inspires me to reach for the stars! Since losing my mom, I’ve had had her supporting and encouraging me to be the best I can be,” she said.
• TYTAN FALLOUT?
She also cleared the air on her relationship with former manager Tytan.
“Tytan and I parted ways two years ago after he decided go and follow his passion to be a musician. I’m very proud of his success and wish him well,” she said.
• NEW SOUND
On her move to change the sound, she said she was pleased by the feedback.
“So far I’ve heard positive reviews with some people being surprised about the new sound and the sexy outfits but I am proud of my work and I give my best every time.
“To my supporters, thanks for believing in me. I have a new album coming next year where you will meet a brand new Cynthia! They have been amazing and great in my life and I’ll let the music speak for itself,” she concluded.
