From circular reggae to gospel reggae

Prime Minister
After being baptised to become a born again Christian, Victor Simbarashe Masarirambi switched from circular reggae to gospel reggae because it was his calling.

Nicknamed Prime Minister, Masarirambi highlighted that although he first started composing songs of circular reggae just like most Zimbabwe artists he was destined to become a gospel singer one day.

“Singing circular reggae was my decision but singing gospel  reggae was a calling that I could not ignore,” said Prime Minister.

He is set to release his second album named “Reggae Baptism” by end of April. The album will have 10 praise and worship songs which he said will be in “Rub-A-Dub style”.

Rub-A-Dub Style” is one the genres created during the passage between Reggae and Dancehall and was invented between the end of the 70s and the beginning of the 80s.  

His first album entitled “Greetings and Salutation” is available on OyOsMusic, an online music digital platform. “Reggae Baptism” will also be available on the same platform for purchase soon after release.

Masarirambe got the nickname Prime Minister from his fans as he was the first local artist to work on an international riddim “Showtime Riddim” in 1996.
