Oliver Mtukudzi, a celebrated Afro-Jazz legend whose singing and guitar playing harnessed influences from across Southern Africa to create the most popular musical style in Zimbabwe, died on Jan 23rd in Harare, the nation’s capital.
The 66-yr old succumbed to a heart failure related to diabetes, according to Damon Forbes, a record executive and promoter who had worked with Mr. Mtukudzi for more than 20 years.
On Sunday Jan 27th, mourners traveled across Zimbabwe to attend Tuku’s burial which took place in his home in Madziwa village, Mt Darwin, in Mashonaland Central province, about 150 km north of Harare.
Many artists came out to eulogize Mtukudzi as a legend that might never be replaced across Africa.
