New star-studded film to launch today

HARARE - Multi-gifted artist Luckmore Magaya is confident that his latest offing, a star-studded short film titled Shame On Us will prove that he has come of age.

The 24-year-old Magaya’s impressive resume includes acting, singing, and poetry.

He was part of the cast in the 2010 Nama best Oustanding Film Production (television drama) winner for the drama Hona Mwanawako and doubles up as Zimdancehall music sensation Tocky Vibes backing vocalist.

The talented artist was also a poetry finalist in the national talent search show, Starbright, in 2014.

Magaya said the new film with a rich cast which also includes Daniel Kanyemba of the hugely-popular television drama series Zvirimudendere and actress Agnes Triggy who featured in Gringo the Troublemaker as a housemaid will be launched at the Book Café at the end of next month.

“We have just finished the production of a 30-minute zero budget enlightening people against all forms of violence and conscientising people about HIV/Aids, especially couples for the need to first get tested before getting into marriage,” he said.

“In the film to be launched at the Book Cafe today, there is a woman who is a victim of violence and someone is also murdered,” added Magaya.

He lamented the lack of funds to do bigger projects as the greatest stumbling block to talented and visionary young artists like him.

The film was produced by Alphonce Manyara. Both Magaya and Manyara are products of Albert Nyathi.

“In 1998, Albert Nyathi sponsored Warren Park theatre and other arts at Magamba Hall in the locality, we were trained in many aspects since Nyathi would want to spot were your talent was,” said Magaya.
