Zim Musicians Honours Tongai Moyo

Suko Dube the manager of the late Tongai Moyo’s son Peter confirmed to Radio VOP that they are expecting all musicians from around the country.
“This is a usual music concert but the difference is that we will be honouring the late great musician .It is a memorial concert which will be attended by all musicians.
Asked if there are any donations to be given to the late Dewa family Suko Dube said he was not the rightful person to comment on that.
One of Dewa’s Old Friends Somandhla Ndebele confirmed to Radio VOP “We will be there remembering and appreciating the good job our friend did during his life time. This is also to show unity which is among musicians,” said Soma.
The Sungura legend died last October after losing battle with cancer.
Moyo, one of Zimbabwe’s most talented musicians died at the age of 43 at Saint Anne’s Hospital in Harare.
The Utakataka Express frontman, revealed in 2008 that he had been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma –a cancer which affects cells in the lymphatic system called lymphocytes.
Gospel power couple Charles Charamba, his wife Olivia, and fellow musician First Farai were among the first to arrive at the hospital. Overcome with grief, First Farai slumped in a heap on the hospital car park’s tarmac.
One of the most celebrated musicians in the country Moyo died a year after losing his second wife Barbara who committed suicide.
Moyo, who was based in his hometown of Kwekwe, also had to deal with repeated rumours of his death — the speculation usually fuelled by his frequent visits to hospitals in Harare and Gweru.
In 2010, after whispers that he was HIV positive, he underwent a public HIV test arranged by a newspaper to quell the speculation. He tested negative.
