Two of Zimbabwe’s creative minds, gospel musician Tatenda Mahachi and fashion designer Thembani Mubochwa have teamed up in a new collaborative music video titled Victory.
Victory which has been topping the charts across local radio stations since its release in May is a single taken off Mahachi’s upcoming 2020 album.
The two have worked together before but this time it was something huge, the music video debuts Thembani Mubochwa’s new PVC collection which he will be showcasing at the Africa Fashion Reception 2019 in Paris France on Wednesday 2 October.
Speaking on the collaboration Mahachi said it was a way of working together with fellow industry players for the growth of both.
“Show business now has many facets to it and it’s now common for big brands to team up and tape into each other’s influences’,” said Mahachi.
Victory was shot and directed by award-winning director Vusa Blaqs in one of Zimbabwe’s most beautiful places, Nyanga in Eastern Zimbabwe.
“Victory is a song that speaks of hope and courage and we thought of connecting with nature hence we chose Nyanga.

“The place has fresh uncontaminated air, scenic views and beautiful wild animals, all these elements are a reminder that there is a creator who exists and will not leave us to suffer,” explained Mahachi.
With a main cast of seven characters, three dancers and three fashion models who showcased the designs of Mubochwa, Victory is infused with Shona, English and a bit of Swahili lyrics and features the vocals of Nyasha Mutonhori on the chorus.
