Nettol rose to fame after the release of Ndiri Bhachura hit, which was voted number two at Power FM’s Top 100 in 2008. He was at one time operating in the border town of Beitbridge, where he joined the Chimoko Chidanger hitmaker, Nasty Trix.

“I am now based in Kwekwe where I have become part of the Duemosteel music academy which nartures art talent from young and upcoming artists. I am now helping to produce their music and I feel so passionate about this new role in the arts industry,” said Nettol in a recent interview. The Duemosteel music academy, founded in 2004 by Jazz and Reggae artist Tawanda Bantuman I Jumo, is one of the most prominent arts-nurturing powerhouses in the Midlands province.

The arts organisation teaches all forms of the performing arts to age groups ranging from 12 to 35 years before offering free recording to those upcoming musicians who will have mastered the ropes of singing.

Some of the young artists assisted at the academy have played as supporting acts to many artists such as Zora King Leonard ‘Karikoga’ Zhakata while others have joined Jazz artist and former Bob Nyabinde’s bassist Telson “Terry” Migi in putting up a band known as The Bliss.

“I have done a lot in helping to grow the music industry as I have produced music for famous people like the Wenera hitmaker Maskiri, Madiz, Stunner and Diana. At my new base I will strive to do even more and bring up several other musicians who will top the charts,” said Nettol.
