He had flu and cancelled all his weekend shows in Zimbabwe
The management at BotswanaCraft has assured the fans of the legendary Oliver Mtukudzi that his show which is billed for September 11th is still on the cards despite his ill health. Tuku as he is affectionately known by his fans fell ill and cancelled his shows in Zimbabwe over the past weekend.
According to Zimbabwean newspaper, The Herald, there was chaos at CSC club in Chinhoyi after Oliver Mtukudzi failed to turn up for a show due to illness. It is reported that his doctor advised him not to go on stage that day, but his manager could only describe the condition as having flu. He promised that it was not anything serious, just that the doctor advised him to rest.
However the management of the popular jazz shrine BotswanaCraft said the Oliver Mtukudzi show is still on the cards as nothing had been communicated to them in relation to his health. When talking to WeekendLife, Sebongile Macala assured that the show is still on and preparations are underway. “If there are any changes we will get back to you but as of now everything remains unchanged,” she hinted.
The renowned and internationally recognised Zimbabwean cultural icon of all time always leaves his mark when he visits Botswana. His last performance at BotswanaCraft had tickets sell out a few weeks before the event and the place was filled to capacity. With his husky voice, Tuku has become the most recognised voice to emerge from Zimbabwe and onto the international scene and he has earned a devoted following across Africa and beyond.
Tuku is expected to yet electrify BotswanaCraft during another edition of the Mascom Live Sessions. He will feature the ‘This is my time’ hit maker and My Star 2012 winner Sharon Sibonge. Nicknamed ‘Little Brenda’, when she was still a backing vocalist with Ndingo Johwa, Sibonge used to sing the famous 90’s hit Vulindlela by the late South African icon and queen of pop, Brenda Fassie, whenever given the opportunity.
The fans of the great legendary should expect no less than his usual outstanding live performance. Mtukudzi incorporates elements of different musical traditions, giving his music a distinctive style, known to fans as Tuku Music. Mtukudzi has had a number of tours around the world. He has been on several tours in the UK, US and Canada to perform for large audiences. Fans have further been advised to buy tickets well in time because BotswanaCraft has a small carrying capacity to avoid last minute embarrassment.
In May 2014, controversial pint sized musician, Odirile Sento married his longtime girlfriend, Kagiso Sento in a glamorous wedding, not knowing that eight years later, the two will be fighting until the very end of their holy union.
Mental health is one critical element in someone’s life but gloomily, it is often overlooked. Topics centered on mental health and depression dominate the public discourse. The national conversation surrounding mental wellness, both online and offline has aided in the stigma of suffering from depression being removed, slowly but surely.
