With a strong combination of rhythm and bass guitars, Moyo leads the pack with his powerful message.

“I do not sing for just quick money, but I believe that this is an answer to a calling and I must make the best out of it,” the Plumtree-born singer told ***The Zimbabwean. “I am still very young, and I have so many more years to dedicate to the music industry. My biggest dream is that by the time I reach 30 years, I must be among the most respected musicians, not only in Zimbabwe, but internationally as well. People like Oliver Mtukudzi and Thomas Mapfumo are already high up there and it is high time that rhumba, by far the most popular beat in Zimbabwe, finds its place at the top.”

Although he cut his teeth in the music industry with “Impumelelo”, Moyo rose to instant popularity with his latest offering – “Akelingitshele”.

“Music fans have accepted me as one of their favourite musicians and it is imperative that I continue to repay their trust by not only releasing great songs, but also giving them great performances on the stage,” he added.

Moyo is getting as much direction as he needs from his stable – All Stars Music, which is owned by Zimbabwean-born electronic gadgets dealer, Nothani Maseko.

“Maseko has told me to be a leading light in the music industry by staying on the straight and narrow, dressing smart and behaving in a manner that will make me a role model.”
