Trust Khosa recently in Marondera
Pengaudzoke co-founder Josphat Somanje is praying for the reopening of the creative sector saying Covid-19 lockdown is taking its toll on artistes.
The 52-year-old opened up yesterday in the Mashonaland East capital after receiving food hampers courtesy of the Music Promoters Association of Zimbabwe.
The association was represented by MacDonald Kachingwe and Partson “Chipaz” Chimbodza.
In an interview with H-Metro Josphat said all was not well.
“We have reached a point where we are surviving by the grace of the Lord.
“I repair old radios and electrical appliances.
“The business is low but Kachingwe and Chipaz came at the right time.
“Putting food on the table is no longer easy and we are praying for the sector to be opened.
“We just pray for the authorities to allow us to open,” he said.
“While life might be tough, I will do my best to make sure I look after my family and that of my brother Daiton.
“If I get something I give them and vice versa.”
Award winning promoter Daniel Masaiti has pledged to continue assisting fellow artistes.
Fellow musicians Diana Samkange and Sarah Dee graced the event.
