The band's Director, Deogratius David 'Killer Boy', confirmed the news when he spoke of the preparations for the album's launch.

The album, he noted, will be the first for the band this year.

"Entertainment events were put on hold in an effort to fight the coronavirus pandemic when we had already prepared tracks for the new album,'' he disclosed.

''We were therefore forced to stop our activities at the time but we have resumed the preparations,'' he noted.

David said the band has six songs, with some of them having been recorded and sent to various radio stations in Morogoro with a view to bringing forth few details on the new album.

"Waluguru Original band has new songs, namely 'Morogoro Yetu', 'Mwanzo wa Mapenzi', 'Cha Kupewa', 'Ngalile Mwanangu Ndole', 'Supu' and 'Nataka Nilewe','' he disclosed.

''We have already sent the 'Morogoro Yetu' song to various radio stations in the region.''

David moreover said the 'Morogoro Yetu' song might as well carry the album's title, claiming the band's fans have always been requesting for the track in the live shows held in the region.

"We are keeping on recording our songs as part of preparations for the album's launch, we moreover do our shows given the government has given green light to the restart of entertainment and other activities,'' he disclosed.

He pointed out apart from recording the tracks their band is communicating with one of prominent bands, based in Dar es Salaam, to feature in the former's album launch.

He said once the talks reach conclusion he will mention the Dar es Salaam band.

He disclosed they have planned to invite the band to perform with them at the album launch.
