Thousands of mourners yesterday travelled to Madziwa village in Mashonaland west to attend the burial of one of the country’s most renowned musicians Dr Oliver Mtukudzi who passed away on Wednesday succumbing to diabetes.
The burial was attended by a number of top government officials led by Defence Minister Oppah Muchinguri, top local musicians and thousands of Tuku music fans.
Last week promoters, politicians and music fans said the passing away of Jazz legend was a great loss to the arts industry and to the nation at large.
Dr Mtukudzi will be remembered for hits like HIV/Aids awareness “Todii” and the mournful “Neria”
