Are the wheels falling off for Dongo?

HARARE - Urban Grooves musician Trevor Dongo’s recent thrashing at the hands of a tout is the latest in a series of misfortunes that have befallen the popular singer.

Early in the year he broke up with his wife of less than a year, Ashley Maumbe. Some people close to the artiste claim that Dongo was cheating on Maumbe while others claim that the Ndashamisika singer’s marriage collapsed because he was too dependent on his estranged wife’s rich family.

In February this year, Dongo, who was on tour in Canada, lashed out at rapper Mudiwa Mtandwa after he received a Zimbabwe Music Awards (Zima) gong on his behalf.

The Nerunako singer tore into Mudiwa on Facebook.

“Tinotenda Mwari neaward yandatora iyo! This is just the beginning of great things. Ko Mudiwa Hood amhanya kuno collector Award yangu pa stage akamira saani if I may ask?

“Handitambe newe to that level Mudiwa. I had vanhu vangu representing me ikoko woda kunyepa kuti ndini ndakutuma. You are full of "I know" but watamba nemuswe weshumba wanzwa,” wrote Dongo.

But instead of hitting back, the gospel rapper apologised to Dongo.

“I am very very sorry Trevor Dongo, it took over two minutes without anyone showing signs of collecting your award, and having last spoken to you yesterday saying you are in Germany, waiting for a flight to Canada, I thought since you were not there may be your manager did not make it too.

“I took it upon me considering the relationship we have heard over the years, I thought I was a brother. In all honesty I meant no harm in going up the stage to thank your fans and notifying them their superstar is in Canada...May you will find it in your heart to forgive me my brother, for what I thought could have been an act of love,” said Mudiwa.

Sources close Dongo say urban Groves star’s career has taken a serious nosedive ever since he parted ways with his long-time producer McDonald ‘Mcdee’ Chidavaenzi. Mcdee, the owner of Eternity Productions, produced and featured on most of Dongo’s top hits which include Make My Day, Don't Be, Nerunako, Tivanyadzise and the 12-track album called First Verse which spawned the hit Ndashamisika.
