Kapfupi's band member dies

HARARE - Long-serving member for Freddy Manjalima aka Kapfupi’s Orchestra Ndozvo band, Blessing ‘Bonjisi’ Vingirai has died.

He died on Sunday after battling Tuberculosis and Meningitis.

Mourners are gathered in Norton.

Vingirai was a dancer at the sungura group and at the same time he was an actor.

Sam Manjalima, Orchestra Ndozvo publicist said Vingirai’s death is a major blow to the showbiz industry.

“It is not a loss to the Orchestra Ndozvo alone but it is a loss to the entire Vingirai family and Zimbabwe.

“He was a hard worker who always loves to work with others in harmony,” said Manjalima.

Vingirai came into limelight as Bonjisi in What Goes Around Comes Around comedy series.

He is survived by daughter and wife Rumbidzai Lavaya who played the role of Regina on Kapfupi’s Mai Nga video.
