Bantuman I honours Dhewa

Local reggae and jazz artist, Bantuman I, has penned a song chronicling the gap left by the late Sungura icon, Tongai ‘Dhewa’ Moyo.

Other musicians in the province have also promised to hold live shows in memorial of the lost hero. In an interview with The Zimbabwean, Bantuman I, who also owns the biggest recording company here, said the song entitled ‘Tongai Dhewa Moyo’ talks about the deep void left by the celebrated musician.

“Moyo left us so soon with many projects between him and us unfinished. The song also tries to inform the world of the position we held him here in his hometown,” Bantuman I said.

He added that scores of fans had received the hit with enthusiasm and said it would soon be recorded and made available in music bars.

Meanwhile, the Midlands Association of Musicians says shows have been lined up to celebrate the life of Dhewa. Tagwirei Mataga, the MAM Secretary General, said the shows would be held in Gweru, Zvishavane and Kwekwe between November 25 and 28.

Baba naMai Patai, Philip Chinembiri and Yulesis are some of the members who will perform. Somandla Ndebele and Leonard Zhakata have also been confirmed.
