SOS call for Noel Zembe

HARARE – One-hit wonder Noel Zembe of the Ndaiwana Hama fame is appealing for help to cover medical expenses accrued after an accident.

Fellow musicians are also planning a fundraising gig to raise money to cover the bills.

Zembe rose to fame with only one song and had gone quite since then, leading to much speculation about his whereabouts.

He was involved in a commuter omnibus accident where he was believed to be a conductor.

Professor Fred Zindi, a friend of Zembe said the artsiste is currently recuperating at home.

They are calling on anyone to assist in settling the hospital bills.

“Zembe spent four days with a fractured leg at Harare Hospital but he was not attended to as there were no doctors present.

“I then realised that his condition might further deteriorate so I decided to call Doctor Obadiah Moyo at Chitungwiza Hospital on Friday. He was then immediately transferred to that hospital where he was operated on immediately.

“As we speak now he was discharged, four days after being operated on. We are still calling for assistance from anyone willing to help. The medical expenses for both Harare and Chitungwiza hospitals are over $4 000,” he said.

Zindi said as artistes they are not sitting back waiting for well-wishers but they are organising a gig as fellow artistes.

“Right now we have roped in the remaining members of the Runn Family, Filbert Marowa, Blaqberry Jazz, Jazz Invitation and others.

“There are also some who want to come on board and we are still negotiating with them,” said Zindi.

The gig is set for August 3 at the Book Café.

Zindi said Zembe was in the process of recording a gospel album.

“He had gone quiet yes but he was recording an album. It had not been completed yet and this accident has been a setback on the recording process. As you know what this industry is like, he was trying to revive his music career.”
