A call has been made for musicians to compose constructive music lyrics that build up the society.

This comes at the backdrop of an era where some musicians are said to be composing what is termed “bubblegum music.”

In a bid to address the nature of music and its role in building a nation, a philosopher who is the director for registry and accreditation for the Zimbabwe Council of Higher Education Dr Augustine Tirivangana urged artists to be conscious of how their products are packaged as it shapes the opinion of the public.

Zimbabwe Music Rights Association executive director, Polisile Ncube said music should be a legacy for artists.

Meanwhile, artists attended a one day workshop that was held at Zimbabwe College of Music today where issues that included the national consciousness and Zimbabwean heritage were discussed.
