Music producer Dr Clarence (real name Clarence Kudzai Patsika) takes a lighter look at the recent mysterious Chitungwiza blast on his new song titled PaChitungwiza Chakaputika.

The song juxtaposes the recent wave of Pentecostal churches that are led by young prophets and the world of juju that is also fast-growing locally.

Although Dr Clarence says the chorus, on which he sings about "mwana wemuporofita" (child of a prophet) makes reference to anyone who is protected by God, the statement is popular among followers of the emerging prophets.

In line with the popular speculation that the blast was linked to juju, Dr Clarence discourages people against the practice.

"…ilesson iyoyo, whatever you do wakahwanda chinozongoputika… (it is a lesson, whatever you do in hiding will always come out in the open)…" go some of the lyrics.

The producer said he takes advantage of any controversy to penetrate the market with his songs.

"It is common knowledge that controversy sells so here I just seized a chance that came begging," he said.

He said the song was compiled out of pure concern over what local societies were becoming.

"The incident inspired me out of the joy that God did not let me get involved [in the incident]. I stay three streets away from the place where it happened and what I saw there was not pleasant," he said.

"I am thankful for the gift of life so this song is a message to all those who go to sangomas for the wrong reasons. I am not saying sangomas are bad but people should know why they go there."

He paints a mysterious, yet light, picture of the occurrence, which has left many people clueless.

Dr Clarence is famed for producing most of Desmond "Stunner" Chideme's music.
