Mutodi could quit music

HARARE - Musician Energy Mutodi says he will quit music if he gets elected as Member of Parliament for Goromonzi South Constituency in the general elections to be held before July 31 this year.

The flamboyant businessman cum-musician — who wants to participate in the elections under a Zanu PF ticket, believes dabbling in both music and politics would be counter-productive.

“I am optimistic that I am the next Member of Parliament for Goromonzi South Constituency therefore it will be noble for me to quit my musical career such that I will concentrate on executing government duties,” Mutodi  told the Daily News yesterday.

Should he make it into Parliament, the Chigorodanda star said he will be replaced by his brother Elasto as the leader of Mutodi Express.

“For the sake of my fans I will appoint my young brother Elasto to take the Mutodi Express forward and I do not doubt his musical capabilities as he is a talented artiste just like me,” said Mutodi.

The controversial musician has released three albums Sekawo Mbichana, Magetsi Ngaabake and the latest Kuita Kuri Kwenyu, an album inspired by his tiff with  Tariro Chirende, his former wife.

“My nasty marriage inspired me to pen virtually all the songs on the latest album. The title track Kuita Kuri Kwenyu teaches in-laws not to interfere with their daughters’ marriages like what my former in-laws were doing,” said Mutodi.

Mutodi’s new offering was produced by veteran United Kingdom-based music producer Bothwell Nyamhondera. It has six tracks namely Kuita Kuri Kwenyu, Madzikirira, Godo Neshanje, Chisekera Nzira, Fadzai and Shamiso.

On Chisekera Nzira, Mutodi urges married women to value their marriage vows and desist from all acts of infidelity while the song Fadzai is about his former girlfriend Fadzai who relocated to the United Kingdom and never returned to Zimbabwe. - Vasco Chaya
