Usually in the American music industry the death of a musician is followed by a film or documentary for both commercial and legacy reasons. This is true with stars like 2Pac, Notorious BIG and recently Michael Jackson.
Sources revealed to Radio VOP that Moyo’s studio, Last Power Media, will zoom on the musicians fight against non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. The time line is said to be six months before his death. The documentary which was produced by little known Abel Dzobo called The Show Goes On, will hit the shelves as early as this Friday.
Moyo’s musical rival when he was alive, Alick Macheso, is said to have a hand in the production although it was not immediately under what role.
Dzobo said: “The shooting started a few months ago and in my discourse with the man, he speaks honestly about his fight to survive and it will be a very inspirational DVD. I have since signed a deal with Last Power Media so that they take over the producing of the DVD copies and their distribution because they are good with quality and know he piracy trends as well.”
According to Dzobo on the proceeds he said he will channel 50% to the late musician’s family, 40% will go to production costs and 10% goes to Cancer Association of Zimbabwe.
Other personalities on the DVD include First Farai and Oliver Mtukudzi’s.
The DVD would cost $1 and would be available at their studio and eventually at various outlets nationwide.
