“My latest offering is to ensure that my fans have something to dance to during the prolonged Covid-19 Lockdown while also maintaing relevance in the local showbiz industry. On this album I worked with Tendy G, Qraze Bee, Steezy wemaBeats (producer) and my friend Chigaranyika. I hope my fans will enjoy EP Dance the most because it is easy to dance along and has a traditional beat,” said the Glendale-based crooner.

Born Tom McAlvin Arupiya, the Chindivimbisa hit maker, affectionately called the Hip-hop Captain by his legion of fans, is currently working on the video for the blazing track EP Dance being sponsored by UK-based Miss Becky.
