Chimurenga musician, Thomas “Mukanya” Mapfumo, has called upon promoters and artistes to unite and hold a gig that will see proceeds help the Cyclone Idai victims.
Mukanya, who expressed his heartfelt condolences to the bereaved and affected families, said he would have loved to be part of the fundraising gig but it’s unfortunate since he leaves for US on Friday.
“Ndirikunzwa kurwadziwa nenjodzi yakaitika iyi, we are mourning with the families that lost their loved ones to this disaster.
“Tine urombo hukuru and I say to my fellow musicians and promoters please come together tibatsire vanhu ava.
“Ngapaitwe show yekubatsira vanhu ava.
“I would have wanted to be part of the show but I will be leaving this Friday.
“Chikumbiro changu chikuru ndichochi chekuti sevaimbi tibatsirewo vanhu ava,” said Mukanya.
Mukanya also promised to be frequently visiting as he has several plans and projects to pursue.
“Ndine hurongwa wakawanda kuno kumusha, so I will be coming now and then.
“There is a cultural centre that I want to start in Domboshawa that will help various artistes from musicians to sculptures.
“The centre will support anything to do with culture,” added Mukanya.
Mukanya said he saw many things during his stay and thanked fellow Zimbabweans for the support they gave him during his visit and shows.
