In an interview with The Chronicle, Oliver Mtukudzi’s former manager Nicodemus Manyame talked about how Tuku met Daisy and how the late musician composed his songs.
He said Daisy was working in a shop when she met Tuku. Manyame said Mtukudzi wrote the song “Svovi yangu” which he dedicated to Daisy within a week. Said Manyame:
Daisy Mushonga went to Globe and Phoenix Secondary School in Kwekwe. She was working in a shop at Old Mbizo Shopping Centre when she met Tuku. I remember when Tuku wrote the song “Svovi yangu” for Daisy, she would visit us while we were working on the song but she never knew about it. We kept it a secret until it was released. This was when I witnessed his composing prowess because it did not take a week to be written but it went on to be a hit. He went on to record many songs based on reality like “Ndafunga Dande” which he wrote after spending almost two months on a European tour.
