SUNGURA king Alick Macheso has admitted he erred on his latest album Kwatakabva Mitunhu (Kure Kwekure) by incorporating a new style that is not popular with his fans.

In an interview with NewsDay recently, Macheso said the album had failed to make an impact on the market because fans had resisted changes he made to his music.

"People were used to certain traits in my music, but this time I decided to change and bring something different. Unfortunately, this did not go down well with them," said Macheso.

The Tafadzwa hitmaker said though the album has been received with mixed feelings he was hopeful that people would understand it with time.

"My hope is that people will get used to the change. It is a new style in our beat, but for now there has been a certain level of resistance on the market," he said.

Songs like Macharangwanda which is slowly attracting attention, Cynthia and Samasimba have, however, been regarded as better songs on the musician's album.

He said the album's performance in the first half of the year would determine when he will record his next offering.

"If it performs well, then we are going to take two years without any new offering, but if it fails to impress we might go back to the studio this year.

"People say we rushed to record the album, but we actually took time to have that project and I am still hopeful people will appreciate it," said Macheso.




At Macheso's live shows people are requesting for more songs from his previous albums than from the latest offering.

The album has faced stiff competition from Sulumani Chimbetu's Syllabus and Nicholas Zakaria's Kurapa Nemanzwi.
