Flames of Fire has released his second album, Ipfi lawe lina Maanda.
Pastor Collen Ncube’s first album, Ndikhouombaomba, was released in 2016.
The new album consists of 14 songs. The fans are very happy with the new album, with songs such as Swina Liamona Mona, Dzulan na Phophi, Mutondi wanga and Muvhuso wa tadulu already being very popular.
The album is already in great demand and has started receiving massive airplay on community, regional and national radio stations. “I am very happy and proud of the way in which my CD is being received by my fans out there. This is a true reflection that my music is mature and appeals to all age groups,” Ncube said.
He added that although the album was self-marketed, many copies had already been sold since its release. According to music critics, he is gaining great popularity among gospel music lovers because of his unique style, which consists of heavy bass sounds. He sings about personal experiences and what he observes.
“I started signing at a very young age at school, but over the years I have been maturing in the music industry. My recent album is a sign of maturity both musically and as person, and I am excited at the turn of events. Since its release, my phone has never stopped ringing. The demand for my album is so high that it has encouraged me to work even harder to make my next album better,” he said.
Ncube says he remembers the day he impressed the judges during a music talent search at school. That, according to him, was the beginning of his road to fame.
He encourages young people who want to venture into the music industry to seek education first, so that they can have something to fall back on if their music careers are not doing well.
