Australia-based musician Makhoe Drey believes he has achieved beyond his target and expectations in the first quarter of the year.

The Ntabazinduna-bred superstar’s major highlight this year was performing at the Zimfest Australian edition which was held in Brisbane, Sidney, Melbourne and Perth on 5, 6, 12 and 13 April, respectively.

On these gigs, he had a privilege to share the stage with some of Zimbabwe’s greats including Andy Muridzo, Baba Harare, Gospel muso Mathias Mhere, Mbeu as well as hip- hop sensation Voltz JT.

Makhoe Drey gave thanks to Greatermanz production who afforded him an opportunity to be part of the “life changing shows.”

“2024 has been good so far and it’s all because of my loyal fans who always give me tremendous support. April was my best month as I did a lot more than I’ve ever done in my entire music career.

“I got a chance to be part of the Zimfest organised by Greatermanz Promotions, not knowing an opportunity was also waiting for me to finally meet a couple of big faces in the Zimbabwean music industry.

“These artistes gave me so much courage and home and made me believe in myself that I can do it and be able to represent Zimbabwe here in Australia and all over the world. I am winning in the first quarter of the year and I am grateful for the strides I have accomplished,” said Makhoe Drey.

Among opportunities he got from the Zimfest was to clinch a collaboration with multi-award-winning muso Andy Muridzo as they did a remix of the song Ekhaya.

This is Makhoe Drey’s second “big” collaboration in his entire career. In 2021 he joined forces with South African hip-hop artiste Big Zulu on the ground breaking song Emazweni.

Meanwhile, Makhoe Drey released a new Extended Play (EP) titled iSahluko saleNdandatho.

The project comprise twelve tracks which are Kuzobanje (Stripped), SMS, Ubuhle Bakho, Nguye, Kuzobanje, Isphalaphala Sentombi, Memeza, Ingubo Emhlophe, Udali, Intombi Yami, Yilezi Izitha and Olwami Uthando.

Thematic concerns on the album are mostly common themes in relationships including love, sacrifice, betrayal and heartbreaks.
