Meanwhile, Mutare-based musicians have described the death of the Kurwizi hitmaker as a heavy loss to the music industry.
Brian Samaita of Murondatsimba Express blasted musicians for not doing enough to help ailing fellow artistes.
“It is a very sad loss. What is worrying for musicians is that most of them die paupers. That is not good,” Samaita said.
“As musicians, we should come together and help each other in difficult times than to only appear at the funeral to give speeches.
“During his sickness, his mother struggled to look after him, but very few came to her rescue. We should come together as one.”
