Mapfumo’s publicist, Blessing Vava, said:

On behalf of Dr Thomas Mapfumo and Chimurenga Music Company we send our heartfelt condolences to the Chingaira family and the entire nation on the sad loss of Cde Chinx. We salute and honour the selfless sacrifice he made during the war of liberation, using his music to inspire the guerrilla fighters in Mozambique.

His was not the gun, but his powerful lyrics oiled the struggle and motivation. We do hope that he will get the honour he deserves as a true national hero of our time. May his soul rest in peace

Sculptor and musician Bryn Taurai Mteki, popularly known as Sekuru Tau added:

We should at least now show the world that the National Heroes’ Acre is not for politicians, but heroes from across the body. Let’s celebrate the life of our heroes, Cde Chinx is not forgettable, is a true music hero, all the music we sing today came from their generation.
