I have declared 2018 to be my year of love. Most of my love stories have ended on a disastrous note usually with me suffering a serious case of heart break but not this year. This year my love life is going to flourish, I’m going to love out loud and I’m going to share a lovely post on how love has won this time around before the year ends. I feel something positive coming my way!
For some reason love and music seem to go hand in hand for me and there’s this Afrofusion artist who has stolen my heart musically! His name is Ashton Mbeu Nyahora and he is part of the group; Mbeu and The Mhodzi Tribe. If you don’t know him you are obviously living under a rock. Think love, celebrating women, daily struggles in our country and celebrating life. He sings it all.
I got in touch with him and asked him what or who influences him musically;
Everything around me influences my music and I owe my mentoring to Dr. Oliver Mtukudzi. To date we still go and seek advice from him, he is a fountain of wisdom.” – Ashton Mbeu
A few facts about Mbeu and The Mhodzi Tribe:
- Ashton’s family wanted him to join the army but his chose his musical passion instead.
- The genre of their music is called Mhodzi Music but their fans prefer to call it Afrofusion; the group is not afraid to experiment with different genres.
- Mbeu and The Mhodzi tribe are all professional and full time musicians working towards penetrating the international platform.
- The age groups of the band members vary from 22 to 28 years old.
This is one of my favourite tracks, I even have it on my running playlist!
You can get in touch with the band on Facebook (@MbeuTheMhodziTribeBand) they are very responsive on that platform.
My personal favourites by the band are:
As I was saying; love is beautiful, relationships are oh so lovely. However when you get into a relationship I hope and pray that you and your partner take time to talk about what your relationship is about and which direction it’s taking. Be clear about what it is you want and need. The year is 2018 refuse to waste your time on things that don’t grow you, relationships included.🤗
How’s your new year coming along? Have you started working on your resolutions as yet? Have you listened to Mbeu and The Mhodzi Tribe before? If yes, what are some of your favourite songs? If not, what are you waiting for???
