Mathias Mhere’s backing vocalist, Martha Anibal has started her own band known as the Anibal Sisters and has announced herself as a band leader with a new offering titled ‘Simuka Upenye.’

Mhere’s leading backing vocalist said she took a decision to start her own project as she wanted to give gospel music lovers an alternative rhythm especially the inclusion of mbira music in her songs.

She said her debut album seeks to inspire people who are facing difficulties to rise up to the occasion in order to succeed in life.

Anibal said her long stay in the music industry as a backing vocalist will help her to succeed in producing entertaining music.

Mhere said Anibal will continue with her duties as his group’s backing vocalist as long as she is prepared to continue working with him while he will also assist her whenever she needs his assistance.

Anibal’s new album has songs such as Inyasha, Kudenga Kumusha, Ruponiso, Mhanya and Simuka Upenye.

It however remains doubtful if the backing vocalist and new band leader will be able to balance her attention on the two bands.
