However, the artist said she is finalizing her debut album.
“I have been on the road traveling through Africa for the whole of 2019, making music, writing, recording and creating my debut album. I found such amazing inspiration on the journey.”

Gemma Griffiths said her latest music video “Gara Pano” is a dedication to all Zimbabweans.
“Gara Pano’ is my love song to Zimbabweans. Their positivity and resilience have taught me what to aspire for since my childhood. Zimbabweans are an inspiration. They seek joy first, and with Zimbabwe as my home and teacher, I owe my all to her.”
