Daisy Mtukudzi, the widow of the late Oliver Mtukudzi has reportedly dissociated her family from any events being held with the Mtukudzi name attached. This has come after Oliver Mtukudzi’s daughter from his first marriage, Selmor Mtukudzi, initiated music events branded “KwaTuku”.
A message apparently from Daisy Mtukudzi circulating on social media says:
“We would like to distance ourselves from any events or gatherings that are being held for Mtukudzi as a family as we are still grieving. It is not going well with our family to realise that there are various individuals out there who are now cashing in because of our loss. We officially announce that there is no event or initiative that is being blessed or initiated by the family as of now.”
A Sunday Mail writer comments that strangely Pakare Paye Arts Centre, the home of Oliver Mtukudzi’s music business run by one of Daisy’s daughters, has hosted music events where artists like Jah Prayzah, Thomas Mapfumo and Mbeu have performed.
Selmor has said she will continue with the events.
