Mtukudzi Family Declines Heroes Acre Burial Offer For Music Icon From Mnangagwa

It's reported he'd been battling diabetes. "I can not confirm what led to the death as we are all still waiting for official confirmation", Macheso said.

Oliver Mtukudzi opened an arts centre in Zimbabwe in 2004 called Pakare Paye which is located on a three hectares land in Norton and equipped with a recording studio and other facilities to help unearth promising talents.

"Zanu-PF and the government of Zimbabwe has unanimously agreed that this man is a national hero", he said.

On behalf of the Government, the party Zanu PF, my family and indeed, on my own behalf, I wish to extend our honest condolences to the Mtukudzi family, especially his wife, Daisy, and the children, during this their hour of grief.

Oliver Mtukudzi was a high-talented singer and guitarist mixed several different styles to create his own distinctive Afro-jazz sound, known to his fans as "Tuku Music". "We pray the legacy of this great musician lives on forever".

This publication took it to the streets of Harare, early today, and as we move around, Tuku's music could be heard from every corner of the city, with its acoustic tunes piercing the surroundings, and filtering every wind that blew. "Thank you for making us happy for so long, especially during the darkest days".

"That the people's legend Oliver Mtukudzi is a people's hero is beyond deliberation". He tried to reach people through support and his music. It later became a soundtrack for a local film "Neria" that was written by renowned Zimbabwean author and filmmaker Tsitsi Dangarembga, whose theme was inheritance, gender equality and balance.

His 2001 song named Wasakara, meaning "You Are Too Old", was banned as it was seen as a reference to leader Robert Mugabe, who was ousted 16 years later aged 93. "He expressed his shock at his death and expressed his deepest and honest condolences", said President Mnangagwa.
