Oliver Mtukudzi Asked His Neglected Daughters For Forgiveness Just Before He Died

Oliver Mtukudzi’s first wife Melody Murape revealed that the late national hero asked for his daughters’ forgiveness for not supporting them while he was on his deathbed.

In an interview with H-Metro, Melody Murape, who is the mother of Mtukudzi’s eldest daughters Selmor and Sandra, regretted not helping his daughters while he has helped other musicians. Melody is quoted as saying:

He said forgive me, my daughters, I have helped a number of musicians, but I have done nothing to you.

The good thing is that he realised it before his death. He (Tuku) even apologised to his daughters and specifically Selmor.

Mtukudzi established his Pakare Paye Arts in Norton where he groomed several musicians and collaborated with others.

In an interview with journalist Wonder Guchu in 2012, Mtukudzi’s daughter Selmor revealed that her father did not support her musical career. She lamented that with her father’s support, she would go places with her musical talent.

    The way melody is even in the death of Tuku shows that she is the reason for the rift between Tuku and his daughters. 30years after the divorce and even in his death she is publishing damaging remarks etc. Can the man rest in peace please. Imhosva here juve celebrity? Melody has never moved on and she regrets leaving Oliver although she left him when he was a struggling musician

    Melody has made quite a few damaging remarks since Tuku’s death. It’s so embarrassing and unbecoming. Doesn’t she have advisors vanomitsiura?
