Museve music maestro Madzibaba (Senior Lecturer) battles piracy all the way to Switzerland


As the battle against local music piracy heightens, musician Nicholas "Madzibaba" Zakaria’s much awaited album titled "Ruvheneko" has been sent to Switzerland for encryption at a time when some of his compatriots in the music scene have released new material. According to the official Zimbabwean government website, Madzibaba’s new release is now expected to hit the shelves later this month.

Alick Macheso broke the jinx with "Zvinoda Kutendwa" whose earlier version was leaked onto the market and heavily pirated, forcing the artiste to make changes on the album. Tongai Moyo followed suit with "Toita Basa", that is going for US$2 on the market in a move described by officials at Gramma Records as a way of curbing piracy.

"The album is done and what is only left is protection against piracy and my recording company, Gramma Records, have sent it to Switzerland for encryption.Ever since they purchased new equipment, Gramma Records are now sending their products for encryption. Once it is back, which is going to be soon, then it will be available on the market." said Zakaria.
