Baba Harare, real name Braveman Chizvino’s band members have revealed that the musician’s manager Mama Filo harassed them.
The claims come after drummer Tinashe Chihota, bassist Kudakwashe Yanika and keyboardist Tafadzwa abandoned Baba Harare’s City Vibration earlier this month. Yanika told a local publication that he decided to quit because he could not stand any further ill treatment. Baba Harare’s manager, Mama Filo real name Filda Muchabaiwa reportedly constantly threatened band members with dismissal. Said Yanika:
We finally quit Baba Harare’s City Vibration during last Extra Mile show with Peter after the inhuman and unprofessional treatment by his new band manageress, Mama Filo. We were supposed to arrive at Extra Mile by 12noon, we delayed by 30 minutes then Mama Filo said ‘we are going to fire you’. That is when we decided there and then to quit before being further threatened and humiliated as it was clear that our penalty was just by the corner.
