The eight track singles collection was produced by one of Zimpraise founders and producer McDee Chidavaenzi and Nigel Munyuki.
In an interview with 263Chat, Kwenda said he owes his success to God, “The reason why I have launched this compilation is because I want to minister the word of God through music and I have done a lot of remixes of my old songs.
Kwenda noted that gospel music in Zimbabwe is growing though he bemoaned lack of promotion which he said is making life difficult for upcoming artists who are struggling to get slots to perform at live shows.
The singles collection was auctioned and bought for $500.
Zimpraise Chief Executive Officer, Joseph Madziyire who was part of the crowd that attended the event also paid $400 to get the newly launched album.
