Zimbabwean RNB sensation Trevor Dongo’s album launch failed to draw a crowd, with only a handful of fans showing up.

The 12-track album, featuring collaborations with some of Zimbabwe’s artists like Tamy Moyo, Nyasha David, ExQ, Freeman, and Shinsoman, was expected to be a hit. However, Dongo attributes the poor turnout to the country’s struggling economy and bad weather.

Trevor Dongo, known for his soulful voice and catchy melodies, has been a fixture in Zimbabwe’s music scene since the early 2000s. With hits like “Ndashamisika” and “African Girl?”, he has built a loyal fan base.

However, critics argue that his manager’s failure to establish him as a brand has limited his reach and appeal to the audience.

The album launch’s poor attendance has sparked a broader conversation about the challenges facing Zimbabwe’s music industry, including economic constraints, poor marketing, and a lack of support for local talent.

As the country navigates its economic struggles,Zimbabwean artists continue to face an uphill battle in trying to earn a living out of their craft as many have made headlines seeking cars from business man Wicknel Chivayo.
