Music promoter Josh Hozheri has urged musicians to be humble.
He made these remarks on Saturday at the National Sports Stadium where there was a sent off gala of the late music legend Oliver Mtukudzi.
He said musicians should be humble and emulate Tuku.
“Tryson, Jah Prayzah, Andy, Sulu ngava zvininipise sezvamaiita Samanyanga,” said Josh.
Josh hailed the late music icon for not moving around with body guards as the norm amongst some artists.
“Maiiuya ku show musina ma body guards sevamwe venyu,” he said.
He went on to say that it was very difficult to work with the artist of these days as they do not have room for negotiation.
“Today’s artistes do not want negotiations when you book them for shows.
“The late music legend Tuku would accept to be settled his money after performing his shows but it is the different case with today’s artistes as they do not accept to be paid their money after shows,” said Josh.
He also talked about the music promoters to remain united as they had shown in organising the gala for the late Tuku.
“As promoters we are not united amongst ourselves; we used to tear posters for other promoters but today we have united and organised this gala within 24 hours.
“We once tried to organise an association for promoters but it did not work well for I wanted to be the chairman so did Chipaz and Bodyslam but today we have worked together.
“I hope as promoters we will remain united like we have shown today,” said Josh.
