Gifted Plaxcedes Madhora’s lyrics charm listeners
By ALBERT MASAKA
LITTLE-KNOWN but amazingly talented gospel musician, Plaxcedes Madhora’s debut video, that is laden with thought-provoking lyrics against child rituals, has enticed many a listener to sing along and is garnering many views.
The hallmarks of success for Madhora are clearly evident in a vocal delivery in the song entitled Siyayi vana Varame that lets out the truth in her emotions against child abuse.
The songbird, who is based in South Africa, revealed to Zim Community News that the music industry was not for the faint-hearted.
“In music, there are so many challenges such as lack of resources and few connections or platforms that assist in nurturing and grooming upcoming artistes.
“Sometimes you feel that you are a carrying a message that needs to be delivered to the masses but it’s very difficult to reach those people due to lack of resources or connections.
However, she was optimistic that through hard work, persistence and God’s grace she will overcome these challenges in her calling.
“Every time l write a song l will be responding to a situation that has happened to me or to someone, a situation that touched my soul and l only feel relieved when l pass the message through singing.
“On this single I have been following an incident that happened in Murehwa around September 2020 of a missing boy (Tapiwa Makore).
“The story became so emotional following the disclosure of how brutally the boy was murdered for ritual purposes and how some of his body parts were discovered.
“It took months for the boy to buried hoping that they would find the missing body parts as all the efforts put to find the missing body parts were in vain.
Madhora added that Makore’s case was not an isolated incident as such incidences were on the rise in Zimbabwe
She released her debut album Ndiye Jesu in April this year.
She begun her career at a tender age writing songs and later ministered in choral groups.
