Urban Groove Artiste Jamal Nyika known for his hit song Kurwizi with Betty Makaya dies
Kurwizi hit maker, Jamal Nyika Mataure, has died, My Zimbabwe News can reveal.
The forgotten urban grooves artiste, Jamal, who rose to fame through the hit song, Kurwizi that featured Betty Makaya, had been seriously ill for some time and had been under home-based care in N Section of Dangamvura high density suburb in Mutare.
A source who spoke to My Zimbabwe who is also a resident in Dangamvura said Jamal died on Wednesday 9 October at his Dangamvura home where he was under the care of his mother, Ruth.
Before meeting his fate, Jamal who took his music career to Mozambique a few years ago had been bedridden for more than a year. He would neither walk nor talk.
Efforts to get a comment from his mother were fruitless as her mobile phone number was not reachable by the time of going to press. After several attempts My Zimbabwe eventually managed to get hold of a female relative who answered Jamal's mother's phone.
"Yes it's true, Jamal is no more. He passed on this afternoon. We are gathered at his home in Dangamvura," said the female relative.
However, in an interview in August this year, Jamal's mother, a known prayer warrior who is a follower of Nigerian televangelist, Prophet TB Joshua, said although Jamal had been on anti-retroviral treatment, he suffered from motor neuron disease from last year to date.
Motor neuron diseases are a group of progressive neurological disorders that destroy motor neurons - the cells that control essential voluntary muscle activity suck as speaking, walking, breathing and swallowing. When there are disruptions in the signals between the lowest motor neurons and the muscle, the muscles do not work properly, the muscles gradually weaken and may begin wasting away and develop uncontrollable twitching.
Another mole who is close to Jamal's family and is based in Mutare also confirmed Jamal's death.
"I am writing to you with deep sorrow informing you that the Kurwizi hitmaker, Jamal Mataure is no more. Jamal passed away a few minutes ago at his
Dangamvura home. Her prayerful mother is deeply pained," a source said in a statement.
Jamal, a talented singer, composer and keyboardist last worked on a comeback album which was produced by a Mozambican producer and carries tracks like Baba Menina and Mwana Wechikoro. He also did a compilation project which carries some of his works. Jamal's famous album Ghetto, released in 2003 features the blockbuster Kurwizi which many mistakenly attributed to Betty Makaya.
