Young Igwe video tells story

SUNGURA musician Peter Moyo has traced his musical journey in anew video showing the steps he underwent after the death of his father and music giant Tongai.

Titled Musarapavana, the video was dropped on Monday with a number of musicians among them Kapfupi, Bob Nyabinde, Somandla Ndebele, Progress Chipfumo and Baba Harare featuring.

He has managed remind people of Dewa, his late father’s moniker, with his outfits in the video including a huge white furry jacket synonymous with Dewa.

Musarapavana is a song off his album Mopao Mokonzi explaining that even after the death of his father, the music had to go on.

Dewa died in 2011 succumbing to cancer leaving Peter to take over the reins at Utakataka Express.

He went through several steps among them vocal coaching by gospel musician Charles Charamba and guitar strumming skills until he found his footing.

Sungura bae as he is also known in music circels has found himself being subjected to comparison with his father which he has managed to circumvent.

He is now among the top performers in showbiz known for his entertaining drills that have seen his shows attracting huge crowds, making a name for himself.

 “It has been a long journey with ups and downs. It was not easy but things are beginning to shape up. I have managed to realise and convince many that I am myself and not my father and when you look at me remember it’s Peter and not Tongai,” he said.

The Mushonga Mukuru singer last year promised to transform sungura through visuals and his latest release is a step in the right direction.

Sungura musicians are usually found wanting in as far as videos are concerned and he is on course to change the narrative.

“I’m happy with the response to the video and that people understand the concept. I did my best and I hope people will enjoy. This is a story telling video, showing the journey that many people travel up until they achieve the goal,” he said.
