Not too long ago, gospel musician George Adams, was in the spotlight announcing the comeback of their musical trio Prophets of Vision (POV) and the release of their single Mirror.
Now, the artist seems to be laying another foundation in the local entertainment industry. He has joined a pool of the country’s stand-up comedians and has produced a comic album titled Chronicles.
Announcing on his Facebook page, the former Calvary Radio presenter wrote: “If laughing is something you cherish, then look out for comic chronicles by Mista Adams to be out on April 2 2018”.
In an interview on Sunday, the artist said it has always been his dream to become a stand-up comic, “but in a way that you might dream of walking on the moon”.
“This is a dream come true, it’s an inborn talent. Even during my secondary school days, I used to make many laugh their lungs out. It’s just more recently that a colleague encouraged me to venture into it on full-time basis,” said the Pentecostal Life University bachelor of arts graduate.
He said: “I was chatting with a friend in my studio and we thought of recording. Since that day I have been considering the idea and decided to make this project. To my surprise, everyone who listened to it encouraged me to do a final cut.”
The multi-talented artist added: “In other words, this is a personal commitment to release comic chronicles. People should not misinterpret my movement with Prophets Of Vision [POV], the group is intact but I just wanted to unearth this talent.”
Many people supported his initiative on his Facebook page.
For instance, radio personality Dietrich Frederich wrote: “I have liked the idea, brother, we will surely support you. All the best as you introduce another talent.”
Another fan, Praise Tasha Njoka had this to say, “Looking forward to laughing my lungs out”. Yet another broadcaster and journalist, Chipiliro Charles Wahara said he could not wait to see him on stage.
POV started in 2001 and comprises, apart from Adams, Isaac Chizaka and Omex Chimpeni. Together they have four albums namely Tiankhandwe, Lipenga, Madalitso Mbwembwembwe and Ambuye Mukutimva.
