Tocky Vibes

HARARE – Dancehall sensation Tocky Vibes has fired a salvo at music promoter Patson “Chipaz” Chimbodza of Chipaz Promotions. Born Obey Makamure; the 20 year-old chanter accuses Chipaz of plotting his downfall. However, the long-serving promoter rubbished Tocky Vibes’ claims. Chipaz accused the dancehall artist of being a liar.

Tocky claims he recently received a phone call from one Blue Eyes from Chipaz Promotions saying he will be finished by year end. “I got a call from Blue Eyes of Chipaz Promotions saying by December he would have destroyed my career. “He told me that they have the power to make or break an artist.

“They chased me at their gig at City Sports Centre on August 31 saying I am becoming big headed,” he said. The Mhai hitmaker said his fallout with the dreadlocked promoter came after he refused to ‘diss’ another promoter Bigboy Chinoperekwei of Devine Assignments during a radio interview prior to the Harare Cup Clash and Summer Slam gigs held on August 30.

Selmor Mtukudzi

Selmor Mtukudzi

An upcoming book revealing sensational secrets of Zimbabwe’s international music legend Oliver Mtukudzi sheds light on the musician’s strained relationship with his daughter, Selmor, also a singer. Titled Tuku Backstage and set to be published before the end of the year, the book was written by Tuku’s former publicist and journalist, Shepherd Mutamba.

Extracts from a chapter “Daughters” exclusively made available to The Standard reveal how the relationship between Tuku and his daughters, Selmor and Sandra, from his first marriage to Melody Murape, had collapsed irretrievably after Selmor (31) made sensational accusations in the media, in 2012, that the superstar was a neglectful father. She said if Tuku was supportive, she would have been somewhere in life. READ MORE AFTER THE CUT

CDE Chinx to be honoured by ZIMA

Comrade Chinx

Comrade Chinx

Cde Chinx is a happy man. The musician is basking in the glory of an honour bestowed upon him by the Zimbabwe Music Awards. He has been selected in the Chairman’s Award category of this year’s ZIMA to be held next month.

Unlike other nominees that will have to wait for the awards ceremony to know their fate, Cde Chinx – born Dickson Chingaira – has a done deal. He was nominated unopposed in accordance with the requirements of the category and becomes an automatic winner.

Come October 3, Cde Chinx will walk away with a ZIMA gong, a befitting recognition for the musician’s unwavering patriotic consciousness. According to ZIMA organisers, the Chairman’s Award is “a special accolade for outstanding contribution to the music industry” and goes to “someone who has made a unique contribution to nation building through music.”

It is the prerogative of the ZIMA chairman to determine a musician to receive the accolade. The Chairman, Joseph Nyadzayo, has seen it fit to honour Cde Chinx. Cde Chinx indeed deserves such recognition. He has not been successful in music commercially but he keeps focused in churning out revolutionary lyrics.
