Musician Seh Calaz brew a shocker when he publicly declared that he will continue singing lyrics that promote violence despite calls by promoters and stakeholders in the music industry to have peace in the dancehall scene. The musician was speaking at a press conference held at Dandaro Inn on Tuesday ahead of the Sting dancehall clash that will be held on November 8 at the City Sports Centre.

The dancehall clash will run under the theme “Say No to Violence and No to Can Throwing” but Seh Calaz, who will be one of the performers said he would not take heed to the advice. He said those who want clean music should listen to Tocky Vibes. “I will continue with my violent lyrics and if you want clean lyrics (you should) listen to the so called dancehall priest, Tocky Vibes,” he said.

HARARE – Superstar Oliver ‘Tuku’ Mtukudzi, who has been a musician for over four decades, says music has never been a career for him but a calling from God. The music star — who has released 61 studio albums — delivered a lecture to students at the Zimbabwe College of Music on managing a career as a musician where he said, he had decided to look for a career option.

“I haven’t decided what career to take. Music is not my career but it’s me being me. According to my mother who I believe is the first person to know me, my birth cry was the best composition to come out of me, from then I began to do me,” said the 62-year-old star during the lecture which was part of the ongoing Italian Musica Festival.

Sungura ace Alick Macheso’s daughter Sharon reportedly infected her husband of two months Kudakwashe Munetsi with a sexually transmitted disease a few days before their wedding in August, while wedding gifts and $10 000 cash went to the Macheso family. Munetsi filed opposing papers at the Chitungwiza Civil Court yesterday through his lawyer Mr Charles Chikore of C. Mutsahuni Chikore and Partners indicating that the two issues were partly responsible for the collapse of their marriage.

Sharon filed an application for a protection order against Munetsi on Monday, but in his opposing affidavit Munetsi said it was him instead who should be protected by the courts. Munetsi alleged that Sharon was possessed by an evil spirit and had to take snuff occasionally to pacify it.

Sharon, on Tuesday, filed an application for a protection order against Munetsi whom she accused of being violent towards her and cited drug abuse as the major reason. Munetsi has denied the allegations in her affidavit, saying his mother-in-law was interfering in his marriage.

“So many things have been said about me by the applicant, while I have been quiet,” he said. “To put the record straight, so many things are causing problems in our marriage. “Our marital problems have been caused by the violent conduct she exhibits. Prior to this, we had other arguments associated with a sexually transmitted disease she had just before our wedding.

“She admitted she had the disease and we both got treated at Ebenezer Clinic in Hatfield. We had to seek medical attention now and then and up to now we hardly have sexual intercourse.” Munetsi alleged that Sharon often flew into a violent rage which resulted in her family taking her to their home for up to three days, leaving him without company.

Sharon Macheso’s marrriage falling like a deck of card

Sungura star Alick Macheso’s daughter Sharon has revealed that her husband of two months Kudakwashe Munetsi abuses drugs and alcohol, smokes mbanje and drinks bronclear (popularily known as bronco), which results in him becoming violent towards her.

Sharon said this in her application for a protection order she filed against Munetsi at the Chitungwiza Civil Court on Monday. Through her lawyer Arshiel Mugiya of Mugiya and Macharaga Law Chambers, Sharon cited violence and drug abuse as the major reasons she needed protection from Munetsi.

“Barely a month into the marriage the conduct of the respondent has been hostile towards me, said Sharon in her application. “He has on several occasions perpetrated acts of physical violence as well as verbal assault on my person. The underlying cause of respondent’s behaviour is that he abuses alcohol and drugs, he has a penchant for drinking broncklin, he also smokes cannabis and abuses amtriplin pills,” she said.

CHITUNGWIZA – Zimdancehall artist Lady Squanda was assaulted in a commuter omnibus last week Thursday. The controversial artist was left with a deep cut on her chin and had to be stitched up at Chitungwiza General Hospital.

Squanda also brags that she did not report the matter to the police and instead it was the police who had reported to her that they knew what had happened and who had done it. She claims the police encouraged her to do her own a “recovery” an apparent slang for a revenge attack. READ MORE AFTER THE CUT
