Peter Moyo to share life af­ter dad’s death in mu­sic video

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Leisure - Michael Magoronga

RIS­ING sun­gura artiste Peter Moyo, has cho­sen not to record videos for his lat­est al­bum but is work­ing on the video of his much hyped track, Musara Pa­vana.

Young Igwe as he is known, who took over the Utakataka Band fol­low­ing the demise of his fa­ther and sun­gura great Ton­gai Dhewa, said he was work­ing on a sin­gle video for the song — which nar­rates his life af­ter his fa­ther’s death — as it has an im­por­tant place in his heart.

The track is off his Mopao Mokonzi al­bum which he re­leased last year. He said the video will be shot in the cap­i­tal where he is based.

Peter said he chose not to do videos for the whole al­bum as it was “tax­ing”. The one he is do­ing, ac­cord­ing to him, de­served a video be­cause of its mes­sage and that it would fea­ture some of his fam­ily mem­bers.

He said the song was a spe­cial one as it had a huge bear­ing on his cur­rent sit­u­a­tion.

“I was left as a teenager by my late fa­ther to take care of a big fam­ily. It is dif­fi­cult I tell you. There are so many chal­lenges so the track is not just a song, hence the spe­cial treat­ment,” he said.

The Kwekwe-born artiste said he penned the song af­ter the chal­lenges he was fac­ing in try­ing to fend for the fam­ily.

Young Igwe has three al­bums to his belt since launch­ing his mu­sic ca­reer in 2012. He pro­duced Mushonga Mukuru in 2013, Mabasa aMwari in 2015 and Mopao Mokonzi in 2017. He has done videos for his first two al­bums.
