VETERAN lyricist Leonard Zhakata and the late Thomas Makion’s legacies are in safe hands.
This claim was made by Zhakata’s nephew, Freddy “Bigaz” Zhakata, who is set to keep the family legacy intact.
The 43-year-old singer, whose musical journey was blessed by Zhakata, believes he is moving in the right direction.
He has never looked back after announcing his arrival on the musical scene with two polished albums, Bhora mberi and Iniwo zvangu.
Biggaz is currently enjoying rave reviews with his single Zvese imomo, which has been endorsed as a triumph by his fans and radio presenters.
Backed by the star-studded Team Maungwe, Biggaz says he doesn’t have any excuse to flop.
“Firstly, I would like to thank my elders Leonard Zhakata and the late Thomas Makion who paved the way for us.
“We grew up looking up to them when they were still co-directors of Maungwe Brothers.
“The two started a beat that we hope to follow and keep alive. I will always take their advice to have pride in our brand if we are to go places and excel in the music industry,” he said.
Biggaz, who believes in hard work and prayer, hailed fans for having faith in him.
“When you come from a rich musical family, some people won’t give you the deserved respect as they think you are simply copying what was created by the elders.
“In my case, I am glad that they have embraced me as I am. I am also glad that they have endorsed my new single, Zvese imomo.
“I recorded this single at Chrome Studios and I hope it will help me on my audience-building mission. I am in the process of shooting a video,” he said.
