CHRISTIAN rapper and philanthropist, Mudiwa Hood, reckons he did a lot for the late Garry Mapanzure before his death.
Garry died in a road accident on October 13 at the age of 25.
Following the death, Mudiwa Hood was among socialites who got stick from the public for not attending Garry’s funeral.
Mudiwa Hood cleared the air on his X ( formerly Twitter) post where he revealed that he also lost his cousin Juliet Kadungure during the same period.
“RIP Garry, RIP Julie, I wish Garry’s death could not have even come. Maybe he could have reached out too achibatawo maoko as I mourn my sister. He had the love… Sadly his burial happened at the same time as my sister’s burial, while his was 300km away…I could not have left the gravesite heading there…” posted Mudiwa.
He said he was in good books with Garry before his death.
“I praise the Lord Jesus I showed up big for Garry when he came knocking on my door, not just once
“Everything he asked from me I did it for him while he was alive. I just didn’t share. I was there for him when he was alive and needed my support, which is more important!”
Mudiwa revealed that he was still to come to terms with the death of Juliet, who was a breadwinner.
“Mufunge hakuna rufu runonzi urwu ndorwakakosha, ndichiri kuchema mwana waamai vangu asiya 5 children who need a mother
“Ndaitodawo vanochema neni kumba kweduwo zuva ravigwa Garry, asi ndinofunga vanhu vanga vane zvakavabatawo. Zvirinyore kutukirira afirwa kuti siya hanzvadzi yako unochena kwatinoda isusu…kune rufu rwakakosha here kupfura rimwe?
“Rufu inzira yemunhu wese, muchasangana nazvowo muhupenyu umu. It is easy kutukirira afirwa nekuti haakwanise kukupindurai mose…asi Jesu wakatendeka muchamarangarira mashoko aya.”
Some of his followers backed him for the support he gave the late singer.
Others felt it was not a must for Mudiwa Hood to attend all funerals.
“I don’t understand why people want to play down the fact that you helped Garry when he was alive while they question your failure to attend his funeral. It does not make sense that people want to know what you did at death, but not when there was life,” wrote Setfree Mafukidze, one of Mudiwa’s followers.
Another follower, Princess Tah, tweeted:
“I want to believe we all do what we can for our families and he should know he doesn’t need to explain his whereabouts when it comes to his own family. Garry was with his family and he was with his own. He doesn’t owe anyone anything, unless otherwise.”
Another follower, Coach Jerry, felt Mudiwa Hood should remain focused and not read much into haters’ opinions.
“Been privileged to sit and eat with you at the same table and to share many stories. While some see POMPOUS, I have always seen your GOOD HEART for people. It’s more important to know a man by his heart than by his physical presentations,” tweeted Coach Jerry.
