We last reviewed award nominated T1 Wema1 ‘s album when it was for sale around Harare. Well it seems Mr. Mhuriro was makingt plans to sell it on-line via the major outlets, Google Play, i-Tunes and so forth. He calls it Ghetto African Hip-hop because he talks about the realities in Zimbabwe.
T1 has received multiple award nominations at the forthcoming 2015 Zimbabwe Hip-hop Awards.
“I’m happy for getting nominated. Me and my team put in a lot of work into Inzwa the album and I personally put in a lotta time and effort worthy of being nominated for Best Newcomer.” – he said.
A lot of people who bought the CD have said that it was a brilliant depiction of the ghetto life in Africa. T1 Wema 1 is from.
“I was quite impressed by the response I’m getting with regards to album sales. To date we’ve sold hundreds of copies. I strategically priced the CD copies of my album at $1 with simple yet effective packaging so as to ensure that I’d push volumes. Surprisingly, some highly appreciative individuals are paying more than $1 with the most I’ve received for a single CD being $10!” – he added.
Tannia from Jungle Global complained this week how the Zimbawean Chart on i-Tunes had no Zimbabweans yet there were now so many Zimbabwean albums for sale on the platform. I asked T1 Wema1 to give me his opinion on this.
“I’ll be embarking on a major marketing drive to promote my upcoming video for Mangwana – one of the tracks on Inzwa as well as the itunes link to the album. I’m hoping my album can play a huge role in paving the way for having Zimbo artists on the iTunes Zimbabwean Charts.”
There you have it please support this brother by purchasing the album.
