. . . Macheso nurtured me to be who I am now
Extra Kwazvose leader Francis â€˜Franco Slomoâ€™ Dakha says he will never rejoin Alick Macheso because he feels fully mentored by the latter.
Speaking on the sidelines of his performance at Joy Centre in Highfield, Slomo, said:
â€œThank you God for giving me parents, life, talent, helpers, fans and wisdom.
â€œI also thank you Mudhara Alick Macheso for the exposure.
â€œOur sungura fans expected me back KwaMudhara Macheso, yes, it shows that I was doing well with Mudhara.
â€œFor Machesoâ€™s legacy and my progress reasons, I could not rejoin Orchestra Mberikwazo while dumping Extra Kwazvose.
â€œMacheso mentored me and I have my own Franco Slomo brand.
â€œBy going back to feed from my mentor, this was going to be a clear sign to the world that Macheso had failed to mentor an employee.
â€œI am Franco Slomo today because of Machesoâ€™s wisdom in mentoring me.
â€œHe is a King Maker.
â€œVanondinongedzera vanenge vachiti, there is Machesoâ€™s product, there is Machesoâ€™s Franco,â€ Slomo said.
He also praised Suluman Chimbetu with who he worked.
