Moyana convinces promoters

HARARE - Controversial sungura musician Jacob Moyana of Kana Muchitidako fame has finally convinced promoters in Harare that his music is clean.

Moyana is headlining the ‘Sungura Night’ to be held at Gwanzura Stadium in Harare next month.

The musician was barred from performing at the recently held 21st February Movement gala at the same venue last month by event organisers including Partson Chimbodza of Chipaz Promotions but this time around the same organisers have hired him again.

“The event is meant to celebrate the company (Chipaz Promotions)’s 10 years in the music industry.

“I have spoken to Moyana and he said people are wrongly interpreting his music. He said he had a number of albums which fans do not know hence I think he needs a chance to show his fans the other side of himself,” said Chimbodza.

Moyana hails from the Ndau community of Chipinge hence owing to differences in languages his lyrics are deemed dirty by some fans from other communities.

In Ndau Kana Muchitidako literally means if you want us there but in other dialects the lyrics aresaid to be vulgar.

Since Moyana relocated to Harare, he never got a chance to perform on big platforms owing to his controversial lyrics but now he is a happy man after successfully convincing the promoters.

He has also been performing at City Sports Bar.

Moyana said barring him from performing is no different from tribal attacks.

“I am happy that at least promoters now understand my background and language. We have different languages in Zimbabwe hence barring me is as good as attacking the Ndau tribe,” he said.

The ‘Sungura Night’ will be held on April 11 and it will feature most of the celebrated artistes including Alick Macheso, Somandla Ndebele, Tryson and Suluman Chimbetu, Peter Moyo, Nicholas Zacharia, Leonard Zhakata, Romeo Gasa, Freddy Manjalima aka Kapfupi, First Farai and Jah Prayzah.
