Young Igwe recovers from accident

HARARE - Utakataka Express frontman Peter “Young Igwe” Moyo, who survived an accident along the Masvingo-Beitbridge highway on New Year’s Eve, has fully recovered, his manager Sukol Dube has said.

Young Igwe’s BMW vehicle veered off the road on his way to Beitbridge where the sungura artiste had scheduled a New Year’s Eve gig.

The accident took place after the young artiste had performed at Ritz Night club in Masvingo.

Dube told the Daily News that the accident did not disrupt the band’s festive season gigs.

“Peter is now fine and even the four guys he was travelling with are all fine. The accident did not affect our schedule as we went on to fulfil the Beitbridge concert on the same night.

“The performance was great despite the fact that the accident had happened in the morning of the same day. Though the car was damaged, it cannot be declared a write-off. We are planning to send it to some panel-beaters and soon it will be back on the road,” said Dube.

This is not the first time the Young Igwe has been involved in an accident.

In 2014, he was involved in another car accident in Hillside, Harare after his Jeep Cherokee rammed into another vehicle.

Three years earlier, he was involved in yet another car crash on his way to Zhombe to bury his father Tongai Moyo — who had succumbed to non-Hodgkins Lymphoma.

young Igwe need a driver who must chauffeur him in-between gigs so that he wont succumb to fatigue when travelling in-between shows. He is still a young man and he must have a elder guide somewhere in the Utakataka ranks or even at home who must play regency while the young man come of age. hatidi krasikirwa nemfana uyu nenzira inokwanisa kudziwirirwa. Handisati ndambonzwa hangu zvaanoimba but being a young fellow trying to keep up his father's legacy anoda much much help.
