Soulful Afro-Jazz musician Pah Chihera, real name, Pamhidzai Tracy Mbirimi has released a touching tribute “Sinyoro Vaenda” to fellow Afro-Jazz musician, Prince Kudakwashe Musarurwa who died last month.
Musarurwa became a household name in 2013 following his monster hit song “Runonzi Rudo” on which he collaborated with Pah Chihera. The talented musician passed on last month after succumbing to lung cancer. He was just 31.
At the time of his death, Musarurwa had produced four albums: Kurarama (2011), Gara Muberevere (2012), Gogodera (2013) and Chiga Chikuru (2014). He was about to release a fifth album which he had titled, Nyamasase.
In a heartfelt tribute to her late colleague, Pah Chihera wrote on her social media page,
This will be my last post for a long time. As promised, the video dedication to my sekuru on my birthday is here. With this, I say Rest well Sekuru, zvirikurwadza but I will remain strong and so will the rest of the family. It’s my birthday and I was expecting your message hakuna chinhu sekuru.
Many thanks to Slimaz, Lazzie T who saw it fit to do the song and video for free and as love and farewell to Prince K Musarurwa.
In this economy, it’s not easy to find people vanozvipira at such thank you…Mrs Thelma Swain for dressing me, Sam Dondo thanks a lot. Thank you to Mrs Esther Hunda for allowing us to shoot the video at her beautiful house.
To every one of you and the family, It is well.
Sinyoro Vaenda asi tawana Nyamatsatse.
