Masimba Edenga (pictured), a choral group of United Methodist Church members, has vowed to continue ministering the Word of God through music despite facing a plethora of challenges, chief among being lack of finances.

Misheck Makumire, executive director of the 13-member group, said they have planned a number of events this year, including a regional tour.

“We are engaging organisers of interdenominational concerts in the Spirit of God with the hope of having a regional tour as we seek to spread the Gospel to all nations,” Makumire said.

Makumire hinted that the gospel outfit would release its 10th album this year.“We are releasing our 10th album in the first half of the year and, hopefully, have a launch,” he said.

Masimba Edenga rose to prominence following the release of their albums Mazambara Volume 1 and Volume 2 which made them one of the most sought-after groups in the country and were synonymous with performances at state, social and religious functions. Makumire thanked fans for their support and also urged peace and unity among Zimbabweans.

“To our beloved fans, we are always proud of you. You are our pillar of our strength and your support to our ministry is always valuable,” he said.

“May the Lord continue to unite us as one family as we engage in our various activities in this great country of ours and beyond.

Masimba Edenga is one of the most popular choral groups in Zimbabwe known for blending traditional instruments such as ngoma nehosho. The group was formed in 2006.
