One On One With Starbrite Winner, Trust Makurumure

After winning Starbrite in 2013, Trust Makurumure literally vanished off the face of the earth, only to later resurface this year doing covers on social media.

Zimbo Jam caught up with the youngster to get to know what he has been up to.

Trust Jeldous is that your name? Trust Jeldous is a stage name, a combination of my mother’s name, Jelda and my father’s name Douglas, I am Trust. I had to find a way of honouring my parents who are both musical directors.

When did your musical journey start? It started way back in 1999 when I was in primary school. I then joined my brothers in a six member gospel acapella group called ‘Messengers of Hope’.

We later infused instruments and in 2002 we recorded and launch our album.

How did you evolve? Well the group died down with people flying away and getting married. This gave birth to my solo career. Since I had a passion for music I had to continue as a solo artist.

I then recorded a six track album called ‘A tale of Deliverance’ but it didn’t do well.

So for me to really launch my solo career I had to go to Starbrite in 2012.

And you won at Starbrite?  No, I was actually booted out in the first round. I however competed again in 2013 and won. I leveraged on the Starbrite brand to launch my solo career.

How did wining Starbrite help you? There is an illusion with most of the talent shows, even the world over, there are very few people who maintain the limelight after the competition.

When you win you forget that the next year there will be another person that will steal your limelight.Looking at talent shows like idols, Britain’s got talent, very few people manage to get their careers going from there.

With me after winning it I thought everything would be in place. Though certain doors did open, after a year things were back to normal.

Any new projects? I have an 11 track EP about me and my lifestyle, it is actually a double CD. On one CD there are tracks like ‘Bhoo zvekuti’ that are more Afro fusion with elements of RnB and soul, and tracks like ‘Love Nono’.

Since I am from a Christian , the other CD has tracks like ‘Nyasha Dzenyu’ and songs like ‘Munoshamisa’ which I did with Emelda, and ‘Emanuel’ which I did with Tatenda Gurupira.

How was the transition from being a gospel artist into being a secular musician? I don’t call it a transition; I am an artist who is a Christian. I am a musician, I sing whatever I feel, though I am an artist who is a Christ.

What can we expect in the future? I am pushing for visuals this year, so I am shooting two videos next month and some tours.
