This has been the worst week of my life. It started last Friday when I was on my way to Masvingo for a show. The first thing that happened was my car radio speakers blew and just took it as a small incident and proceeded with the journey. Then when we were passing through Mvuma, (I was driving) I saw a tyre from my own car overtaking me.
It was scary but we survived that again leading to a two-hour delay. Keen (Mushapaidze, his manager) had to come and get us with his car for us to proceed to Masvingo. When we got to Masvingo, there was a bumper crowd of over 2000 people but we were told there were technical problems with the sound system, hanzi maspeaker anaiwa and the show was cancelled. That was so demoralizing.
After that I asked Keen and the guys to buy some food at chicken Inn and after he parked his car, another vehicle came from nowhere and crashed into the car that was right next to his car. The next day I got a call from my mother and she said she had a bad dream and wanted to know if I was fine. I chose not to tell her about the (aforementioned) events and told her we are fine.
Then came the Castle Steal Show where there was so much congestion because of the over 15 000 people that attended and I could not get on stage on time leading to some cans and bottles being thrown at my band by impatient fans. I woke up the following morning to news of Chris’ death and that was even more devastating. I went to his home to pay my condolences and waited to attend his burial. Then I got to the burial today (yesterday) and happens. I do not know what tomorrow Ism in store for me my brother.
