Harare, Zimbabwe. (News Of The South) – It’s now close to 9 years since the death of one of Zimbabwe’s famed music producer Fortune Muparutsa, but his legacy still lives on.
Tapfumanashe Rujeko, a nephew to the late Fortune Muparutsa has made a big musical statement by doing a collaboration with a popular house music artiste in South Africa L’vovo Derrango on a single entitled ‘Zunza’.
The song is currently on heavy rotation on the local radio stations.
The young producer who grew up under the tutelage of his uncle spoke to this publication on his musical career.
“I left Zimbabwe for South Africa a few years after the death of my uncle so that I could establish myself well in the industry since South Africa’s musical scene is vibrant.
“While in S.A I managed to do a 4-track demo album which caught the attention of Archie Majola ,a renowned radio presenter in Durban and also a former manager of Big Nuzz (a popular kwaito music group ) who then linked me up with other established artistes this side,”narrated the former Allan Wilson high school student.
He went on to say that when L’vovo Derrango got wind of his music producing prowess, he approached him and initiated the collaboration that has shaken both the Zimbabwean and South African music scene.
Rujeko said all is on course for a video to accompany the smash hit and promise more collaborations.
“I am very much excited about this collaboration and we are working on a video for the song,” quipped the ecstatic young artiste.
Rujeko said he has been in the music industry for quite a long time with his debut single Terera, which he wrote and produced, it features Clive Mono Mukundu on guitars and the Late Adam Chisvo on percussion.
He joins many Zimbabwean artistes who have lit up the South African music scene and these include Anesu Mupemhi of the Bongo Muffin, Buffalo Soldier and Zubz just to mention a few.
