Shiga shiga joins Bev's Sexy Angels

HARARE - Popular Congolese chanter Gift ‘Shiga Shiga’ Katulika, who has failed to re-join Peter Moyo’s Utakataka Express, is now part of Beverly “Bev” Sibanda’s sexy Angels.

The Congolese artiste confirmed to the Daily News that he is now part of the controversial Bev’s new music venture.

“I am now working with the Sexy Angels, promoting the forthcoming debut album called Tapinda,” said Shiga Shiga soon after performing with Bev at the Private Lounge in Harare on Thursday as a supporting act to Suluman Chimbetu and Jah Prayzah.

“I came all the way from Congo to help Zimbabwe develop her music industry. It has always been my wish to work with little-known upcoming artistes. This is the reason why I joined Mutodi Express from the popular Utakataka Express in the first place.”

Shiga said he is no longer bound by the contract he penned with embattled musician-cum-businessman Energy Mutodi because the Chigorodanda singer was the first to flout it.

“Apart from developing talents in Zimbabwe, I also need food on my table. Mutodi breached the agreement so I am not worried about the contract anymore,” he said.

Though Shiga refused to furnish more details on the contract, a source close to the Congolese told the Daily News that the five-year agreement forbids the chanter from joining other music ventures.

“The contract stated that Mutodi will pay our monthly rentals but he has ceased doing since legal troubles began,” said Katulika.

Harpers Mapimhidze, the Sexy Angels manager, said there were a few things which still need attention before the Congolese can fully join Bev’s ensemble.

“Chances are 200 percent that Shiga is ours,” he said.

According to Bev, Shiga is joining the Sexy Angels in a deal organised by City Sports Bar and Holly’s Hotel owner Biggie Chinoperekwei.

“I am happy to note that Biggie has proved that he is not just a show organiser but also a promoter. He has promoted me from the beginning and now he has managed to rope in Shiga into my band. I hope Shiga will help me reach the top,” she said.
