Memorial Show For Sam Mtukudzi

The memorial show will start on Saturday April 3 until the next morning.

South African and Zimbabwean artists such as Gloria Bosman, Phinda Mtya, Chiwoniso Maraire, Max Wild and BCUC will perform at the event.

Sam died in a car accident early this month together with his friend Owen Chimhare.

At the time of his death Sam had just one album to his credit, Rume Rimwe. 

Not only was he big in Zimbabwe, he has slowly but surely carved a niche for himself in the cutthroat South African music industry, becoming, a regular at the Bassline.

In 2008 while marketing his album in South Africa, he became an instant hit on record and became much sort after overnight. Respected radio stations such as Kaya FM and SA FM featured him on air for 30 minutes, again something which doesn’t come easy, especially with commercially driven stations like Kaya FM.

Sam was born on April 1, 1988 in Kwekwe. He showed his interest in music at an early age. He was later to hone his skills at Prince Edward High School learning how to play all that is in music, making him the master that he was.
