NJANJA EXPRESS band leader Mark Ngwazi has challenged his Utakataka Express counterpart Peter Moyo over his “failure” to match his late father Tongai Moyo’s voice.
Ngwazi said battle lines have been drawn and booked a neutral venue on Tuesday at Yadah Hotel where he said he intends to prove to Moyo that he is a footballer, not a musician.
In return, the Young Igwe described Ngwazi as a novice in the music industry who should not fool himself because of one popular song.
This did not go well with the Taurai Madzoka hitmaker who said he was ready for the clash.
“To start with, I never inherited a musical band like Peter Moyo, who is a footballer and not a musician to challenge me,” said Ngwazi.
“If it was his father I would have respected, not Peter, a soccer midfielder and not even a striker to claim his prowess.
“For him to prove himself better, bring soccer boots, not a guitar because anediscord pakuimba zvekutadza kuteedzera baba vake vacho.
“My dancers can sing better than Peter Moyo and this, I am going to prove come Tuesday at Yadah Hotel kana zvanetsa anonamatirwa na Prophet Magaya mademon obuda.
“I was not introduced to music by my relatives like him and come Tuesday, he will know that music is within my veins,” said Ngwazi.
In response, the Utakataka frontman said:
“When it comes to stage performance, Utakataka is number one and we are ready to humiliate Ngwazi for trying to make his name by one tune. We have been tried and tested several times, but Ngwazi is a novice when it comes to music and people will get the opportunity to watch from the comfort of their homes on Tuesday.
“Hapana zvekuti ndangandakadhakwa saka handina kuona mushe, everyone will be at home and not in a bar or night club.
“Tinenge tiri pahotera tichiratidza zvishandwa zvedu pastage nyika yakatarisa,” said Moyo.
