Tinkabell hosts Tuku

HARARE - Superstar Oliver “Tuku” Mtukudzi is performing at Tinkabell Restaurant in Ardbennie, Harare on Saturday afternoon.

The Bvuma hitmaker is set to sample most of the songs from his forthcoming album to be released anytime from now, as well as a number of his old hits from his more than 60 albums.

Tuku is a Zimbabwean musician, businessman, philanthropist, human rights activist and Unicef Goodwill Ambassador for southern Africa.

He began his artistic journey in 1977 when he joined the Wagon Wheels. His debut song Dzandimomotera is still a darling song of many up to this day.

With his golden voice, he made a huge impact on the local music and international scene.

His totem being Nzou Samanyanga, Tuku incorporates elements of different musical traditions, giving his music a distinctive and culture-rich style.

The Chiri Mupoto singer has toured around the globe, performing for large audiences.

Mtukudzi is regarded as a living legend as he has contributed immensely to the development of the local music industry.

He is not only respected for his all-time hits but also for building an arts facility, Pakare Paye Arts Centre in Norton which local private property developers estimated the total value of the land and developments on it to close to $2 million on today’s market.

Pakare Paye Arts Centre is a place for developing and nurturing young talent in different artistic fields such as music, dance, drama, poetry and martial arts among other art disciplines.

Back in the days, the arts sector was regarded as “an industry of crazy people” and for this reason parents used to discourage their children from pursuing artistic careers.
