MUSICIAN Andy Muridzo’s dancer Isaiah “Prezha Manager” Mudiwa reportedly faked his son’s death and claimed US$50 from his employer.
Prior to Muridzo discovering the truth, the Jeetaz Band leader had ordered his outfit to observe a minute of silent for the said death of Mudiwa’s three-year-old death.
In an interview at Jazz 24/7 where Muridzo has a permanent midweek slot, Prezha Manager appeared distraught.
“I am still confused about this unexpected tragedy in my life with my wife Nolleen Muwungani.
“My six year old son Emanuel Mudiwa passed on in Rusape on the 7th of September 2016 in Rusape, at Kriste Mambo.
“My mother in law, Mrs Nestalian Chabatabere said my son fell from the tree and broke his neck.
“My family had visited there to help my in-laws with tobacco harvesting.
“It’s so confusing because the tree that is being pointed at cannot be climbed by a child at such a tender age.
“My mother in-law’s eight year-old old son cannot climb that tree so how come my son managed? Emanuel was our only child,” said Prezha Manager
When H-Metro contacted Mudiwa’s wife, she dismissed the death rumours.
“He is a liar, there is nothing like that as the child is alive and kicking.
“He is three years old and I actually have the kid with me here in Rusape.
Contacted for comment, Muridzo expressed his dismay over the rumours.
“It is not good for an artiste to be a liar to the extent that we gave him $50 to travel to Rusape.
“He said the kid died of diarrhea to me and now there is this story of falling off a tree.
“We will look into that as it affects him, the fans and the band.”
When further contacted, Prezha Manager kept saying “Hello, hello, hello,” before his phone hanging his phone.
