Scores of bidders bought the album with different amounts ranging from US$10 to US$1 000. The highest bidder bought the album for US$2 000.
Speaking in an interview with The Manica Post, Moyo said she was overwhelmed by the support she received. She said:
The show was a huge success and we were overwhelmed by the immense support we got from the people of Mutare and beyond.
Hundreds braved the wet weather and that speaks volumes about the trust and sincerity of our followers.
However, we expected more and the weather somehow affected the numbers.
Every artiste brought their A game and that worked perfectly in giving the revellers an unforgettable encounter.
The people of Mutare are an unbelievable bunch. I will remain forever indebted to their loyalty and support.
Let us come together and prove that Mutare is a force to reckon with as far as the arts sector is concerned.
The producer of the album, Olin Anderson of Kunashe Studios, based in Chikanga, Mutare, said:
I am over the moon. Working with our elder, Macheso, was one of the greatest moments of my life.
The album is already trending and I am happy that I am part of the success story.
Having him (Macheso) in the studio was a blessing.
