The African continent is still in mourning after it was robbed of yet another legendary musician in Oliver “Tuku” Mtukudzi.
The Zimbabwean Afro-jazz musician died on Wednesday, January 23, aged 66. Zimbabwe’s state daily The Herald said Tuku succumbed to a long battle with diabetes.
He had been in and out of hospital since December.
As the world continues to mourn Tuku, Tanzanian singer Rayvanny is one of many African musicians who have paid tribute to the renowned musician.
The Bongo star was privileged to have had the chance to work with Tuku on a project that is yet to be released.
While expressing his disbelief at Tuku’s passing on social media, Rayvanny also teased the song titled ‘Neria’ which also features Zimbabwe’s Jah Prayzah.
“Can’t believe that we are not Together….I remember Last time you asked about the release date of Our Song with you and @jahprayzah and today we are not Together…. … MAY YOUR SOUL REST IN PEACE (R.I.P DADDY ) LEGEND,” wrote Rayvanny.
Give the song a listen below.
