Gospel musician Tinashe Magacha has released a song dedicated to the late musician Joyce Simeti who succumbed to a heart problem that was diagnosed a few years ago on Tuesday. The song titled “Fambai Zvakanaka Mhamha” was produced and mixed by Nigel Nyagombe.
In an interview with the Herald, Magacha said he is still in shock.
I was shocked at receiving such news. I last spoke to her on Monday and she always put me on map by giving me platforms to perform wherever she had shows. She was a pillar of strength to me. It’s the hardest moment of life, when we start to imagine her absence. I have dedicated this song to her. She took her time nurturing and grooming me.
The “Mvura Ngainaye” singer and young brother to award-winning musician Sebastian Magacha used to play percussion for Simeti and that is how the two became close. He said he was supposed to perform with Simeti at a show next weekend.
