BINDURA based businessman Kudzanai Kangara feels artistes in Mashonaland Central have been marginalised when it comes to coverage.
Kangara, who is a licensed gold buyer with Fidelity, believes his home town has a number of talented musicians but are being hindered by lack of resources.
Popularly known as Boss Kangara, the 46-year-old businessman is working with gospel artiste Tafadzwa “Lasper” Ncube who is riding on his latest song Mapopoma featuring Kudzai Nyakudya.
“Upcoming musicians have financial challenges to record, shoot videos and do other logistics.
“So I am coming into that gap where I intend to help them in whatever means.
“Like here in Mash Central, it’s one of the marginalised areas for musicians since everyone thinks Harare is the big deal.
“So I am in position to demystify the notion that if you are not in Harare, you cannot be better.
“I will support them at whatever means, I want to see them on top of the game.”
“I am prepared to see these youngsters rubbing shoulders with established musicians like Jah Prayzah, Macheso, among others.”
The gold buyer said his desire is to see, young and talented artists appreciated.
“We want to see these young talented artists getting exposure at whatever cost.
“Here in Bindura I will make sure anyone who has talent gets to the limelight.
“I want to make Bindura a hive of activities through the support I am prepared to render.
“I identified talent in Lasper whom I have since ‘adopted’ to be my child so that he rise to be a better musician.
“He will be the best.”
The 46-year-old has been assisting widows and orphans around Mashonaland Central.
“I help more than 50 widows with groceries every month.
“I also pay schools fees to the orphans and some of them are also at the boarding schools.
“I feel it’s worth to help the vulnerable in our societies so that we realise our goals together.”
Kangara who is also a qualified Electrical Engineer has also urged young people to work hard so that they realise their goals.
“I am a former teacher who has worked at three different schools in Mash Central.
“After that I ventured into electrical engineering but I am yet to practise since I then ventured into another business.
“I urge all the young people to work very hard and they should take their studies seriously.
“There is no shortcut to success but hard work is the key to success.”
He also said encouraged people to invite the presence of God in these trying times.
“Without God we are nothing.
“All this material things vanish but if we have a good relationship with God we will go far.
“I had to work hard to enjoy what I have at the moment, it didn’t just come,” he said.
Kangara who is also into farming has pledged to work with young people empowering them and preventing them from social evils including drugs as well as prostitution among other things.
