It is an inspired collection of tunes. TVEP Song highlights the rampant sexual abuse in local society. TVEP is an acronym for Thohoyandou Victim Empowerment Trust. The organisation provides support for the victims of sexual abuse and family violence. Mukwevho has pledged his support for the non-profit organisation by writing a song that addresses these pertinent issues.
"I think it will have a serious impact in educating men to behave like men and treat their wives and children in a positive manner," he says. The song has struck a nerve with local audiences in Limpopo. The album sold a total of 5 000 copies in its first week, which is an impressive figure for a local independent reggae release. Mukwevho elaborates on the effect of the song on listeners: "People are beginning to know the constitution and the rights of women and children. They understand what democracy is all about. "I refer to the communities in the rural areas who are going to learn about democracy, and show a greater interest in their rights when they hear the song." TVEP Song is the only track on the album that is recorded in English, to enable its message to reach a wider audience.
Mukwevho composed, wrote and arranged all the music on the album. A national tour is planned. "We are looking forward to a very strong album in the local music market," says the reggae maestro. "We believe that people outside the province would enjoy hearing it too. "With our shows, we aim to promote the TVEP organisation as well as the album." A definite big up and jah-speed to this reggae music disciple.
