Tuku comes back home

HARARE - Music superstar Oliver “Tuku” Mtukudzi will return to his home town of Kwekwe tonight for the first time in two years.

Tuku’s highly-anticipated concert, to be hosted by Autoworx Leisure Centre, will also feature Terry and The Bliss.

Tuku’s manager, Sam Mataure, has described tonight’s concert as “a must-attend for Kwekwe residents.”

“We haven’t played in Kwekwe in two years due to Tuku’s schedule which has made it impossible to perform in Kwekwe as regularly as we would have wanted,” said Mataure who also plays drums for the music superstar.

Autoworx, which has worked with the internationally-recognised music icon before, is delighted to host the music legend’s homecoming gig.

“Tuku is originally from Kwekwe. We have a good relationship with him. He is one of us. It will be his second time playing at our venue.

“We had the honour to host his birthday bash,” said Autoworx owner Oswald Mashonganyika, adding that the show will also be a celebration of the company’s recently concluded partnership with Zimoco.

“Part of our business is focused on automotive services and we recently achieved a milestone by partnering with Zimoco.

“Autoworx is now the official dealership for Zimoco in Midlands.”

Tuku, who has 61 studio albums to his name, is expected to showcase songs off his latest 10-track album Mukombe Wemvura.

The Kwekwe show follows recent concerts held by the music star in Mutare and Victoria Falls.
