Zimbabwean-born musician Samson “Samcee” Chivi (21) recently released his third album, Divine Comfort.

Born in Kwekwe, Zimbabwe, Samcee came to Namibia as a visitor with his brother with the dream of making it big in the arts and sports arenas. He now resides in Mondesa Swakopmund.

About the album, Samcee says it contains inspirational songs and afro gospel tunes.

“I decided to share these messages because I have experienced many tough times in my life as a youngster growing up in a ghetto. This album means a lot to me because it gives me the opportunity to spread my message.”

According to the singer, music is something that has always been a part of him.

“I am passionate about it. My love for music is immense because it’s a platform that if used correctly, can change lives. It shares messages of hope, which are always needed.”

His latest offering differs from the previous two, because he collaborated with other artists, which include Swakopmund-based Yung Kavin and Sckwacky-og from Windhoek. In creating the album, Samcee worked with producers like Namibia’s Sem Amuthitu as well as Nigerian producer TX Beat.

“I decided to work with these artists because I feel they are really talented and have a vision of going international while spreading the gospel.”

In the past, the afro pop and gospel singer performed solely in his mother tongue, Shona. However, for Divine Comfort, he sings in English to cater for all ethnicities and his international fans.

“With English I can reach millions with my message, because it is an international language,” he said.

Seven of the ten songs on the album are in English, while the other three are a mix of English and Shona.

Samcee says the most sentimental song on the album is “Maboss”, because it speaks out against sexual harassment. The beat for this song came from TX Beat in Nigeria.

“I met TX Beat through Instagram. He sent me a message saying that he liked my work. I checked out his profile and discovered I also liked his stuff. When he hosted a live post saying that he was giving artists an opportunity to do some freestyle, I did it and everyone watching was impressed with my performance.”

Other listenable songs on the album include “Race Man”, “Don’t judge me” and “We need your mercy”.

Divine Comfort is available on Samcee’s Soundcloud account as well as on YouTube. Hard copies of the album will be available soon.
