Sauti Sol yesterday paid its respects to the late musical legend, songwriter and filmmaker Oliver Mtukudzi.
Sauti sol’s Mudigi Savara and Ben soul shared with their youtube fans a video of them singing along to the beautiful tunes of Oliver Mtukudzi’s song “Neria”
It seems like Oliver Mtukudzi was a major influence to many musicians in Africa and many of them have taken their time to eulogise the late musical legend.
Another musical genius who has paid tribute to the late Tuku is Kenya’s sensational afro-fusion singer, songwriter, and performer Suzanna Owiyo.
Suzanna delivered her message during an interview with KTN, she said;
Its a big loss for the African music fraternity. We’ve lost a great voice,we’ve lost an icon. And i’m looking at the loss not necessarily to the Zimbabwean people but also to Africa and the world because Tuku’s music would cut across all cultures. Oliver was like a brother to me and the moments we shared were always inspiring.
Other East African musicians to remember the late great, are the likes of Diamond Platnumz and Rayvanny. Diamond wrote yesterday:
