Zvishavane– The establishment of a recording studio under the banner, Verenga Empire, in the heart of the mining town has proven to be the ‘Canaan’ for budding talents in musical circles as it has accorded youths room to express themselves in the studio rather than on street corners and bathrooms.

“We established this studio with the aim of helping upcoming artists to become stars and help established artists to become mega super stars,” he said.
The state of the art studios boasts having modern equipment and room for both digital and live bands.
Verenga Empire also has a number of artists signed under its banner. Most of them are based in the Great Dyke region and include Datler, Proskan, Curtis, Vybz, Tawanda Tobaiwa (a sungura artist), Lyrical based in Shurugwi, Maroza the “Celebrity wife” hit maker who recently dropped a single track called “Gemenzi reGucci”.
