Thomas Mapfumo Not Coming Back Soon

Chimurenga music legend Thomas Mapfumo’s company Chimurenga Music Company has dispelled rumours circulating on social media that the musician was on his way back to Zimbabwe.

The musician’s spokesperson Blessing Vava, who also doubles as Chimurenga Music Company spokesperson, said the 72-year-old crooner was not coming back to Zimbabwe anytime soon.

“I can confirm I spoke to Thomas Mapfumo around 5am [yesterday], he was about to sleep at his home in Oregon, USA. I repeat again as the official spokesperson of Mukanya and Chimurenga Music Company, Thomas Mapfumo will not be performing in Zimbabwe anytime soon,” Vava said.

Vava said the video that went viral on social media where Mapfumo said he was ready to come to a “free” Zimbabwe was an old video.

“It’s an old video that was shot when Mapfumo was going to perform in Leicester [UK],” he said.

Euphoria gripped Zimbabweans yesterday after one of the directors of ceremonies at the solidarity rally held in Highfield said Mapfumo was coming to Zimbabwe.

Mapfumo, whose songs comment on socio-political issues in the country went on a self-imposed exile in the United States in 2001 claiming his family could be harmed by the Zanu PF government.
