Tryson reshuffles management again

HARARE - Dendera artiste Tryson Chimbetu has added brothers Daniel and Shepherd Machakanja to his bloated management team that also includes Trycose “Musoni” Mutodzaniswa and Simbarashe Mahenga.

Tryson, who has lately faced turbulent times at the helm of his Marxist Brothers band, confirmed to the Daily News that the Machakanja were now part of his management set-up.

“Yes, it is true that Shepherd and Daniel joined the Marxist Brothers and they are now part of the management team. We had to include them in the band because we needed their input,” he said.

The Pahotera singer was, however, quick to point out that Mutodzaniswa was still part of his band though he was unprepared to specify if he now had a new role.

“He is still involved. He is still part of my band’s structure,” was all the feisty Marxist Brothers leader could say.

A source close to Tryson’s band told the Daily News that the arrival of the Machakanja brothers had made Mutodzaniswa redundant.

“Daniel, Sherpherd and Simbarashe Mahenga have effectively taken over because it had become increasingly clear that he was finding it difficult to run the band,” he said.

According to the source under the new management structure Mahenga is now in charge of marketing while Shepherd is now responsible for the band’s programmes.

“That is how the new management looks like. Mahenga and Shepherd report to Daniel. Mutodzaniswa doesn’t feature at all in the new structure,” he said.

Despite his undoubted talent, Tryson, the son of late dendera star Naison Chimbetu, has played second fiddle to his more prominent cousin Suluman Chimbetu.

Tryson has produced four albums which are Nguva yaChimbetu, Marxist Revival, Bvamrod and his latest titled Compass which is a six-track offering.

Tryson collaborated with music superstar Oliver Mtukudzi on Pahotera, the most prominent track on Compass. Other tracks on Tryson’s latest album are Mombe Mombe, Bhora Mberi, a duet with Peter Moyo, Ndondo, Pfuti and Wangu.
