    Tuku's no show triggers violence that left PA system damaged and engineer injured.

    Oliver Mtukudzi failed to turn up for a show in Chinhoyi after he fell ill, triggering chaos. Tuku was supposed to take to the stage with Suluman Chimbetu and Soul Jah Love at the CSC club in Chinhoyi.

    Mtukudzi’s manager, Sam Mataure, said the musician had flu and this had forced Tuku to cancel all his weekend shows. “He could not perform because he had flu. We cancelled all our shows over the weekend,” he said. He said they were planning to have another show in Chinhoyi to make up for their absence.

    “There is nothing much only that the doctors said he should rest. We will have a gig as an apology to our fans in Chinhoyi,” he said. The superstar’s no show triggered violence that left Chimbetu’s PA system damaged and engineer John Kajayi injured.

    Chimbetu publicist Joe Nyamungoma refused to shed more light on the issue. “Yes, our PA system was damaged and our engineer was injured, but for further information contact the promoter and maybe Mataure,” he said.

    Promoter of the event Tafadzwa Maridadi said the situation was beyond their control.

    “He told us that doctors advised him not to come for the show so we had to rope in Tocky Vibes. His performance was good, but fans wanted Mtukudzi, prompting them to throw missiles at the dancehall musician,” said Maridadi.

    He said they were forced to call Chimbetu back to the stage. “We were forced to call Chimbetu back on stage because the situation was getting out of hand,” he said.
