Samcee brings ‘Divine Comfort’
12 August 2020 | Art and Entertainment
Afro-pop and gospel musician Samson ‘Samcee’ Chivi (21) recently released his third album, Divine Comfort.
Born in Kwekwe, Zimbabwe, Samcee came to Namibia with his brother in hopes to make it big in the arts and sport.
On this project, the artist shared inspirational 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.”
Passionate about music
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 his 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 Nigeria’s 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.”
Catering for everyone
In the past, the 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 10 songs on the album are in English, while the other three are a mix of English and Shona.
Samcee said the most sentimental song on the album is Maboss, which was produced by TX Beat, because it speaks out against sexual harassment.
“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, saying he was giving artists an opportunity to do some freestyle, I did it and everyone watching was impressed with my performance.”
Other notable tracks 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 also be available soon.
