Controversy stalks Andy Muridzo

RISING music star Andy Muridzo can be both a hero and villain in equal measure.

His music talent, which has spawned hits such Dherira, Emma and Chidhafu Dhunda, has never been doubted but it has been counteracted on a regular basis by his knack of attracting controversy.

First it was his affair with controversial dancer Beverly “Bev” Sibanda which attracted national attention after the Sexy Angels’ leader claimed that the two had indulged in unprotected sex. She also claimed that she had become pregnant as a result.
With many people increasingly doubting Bev’s claim that she was indeed carrying Muridzo’s baby, the controversial dancer later claimed that she had suffered a miscarriage while on stage.

A recent family show held by music star Jah Prayzah at Extra Mile Leisure Spot in Harare provided a platform for Muridzo to transform from a villain to a hero in a blink of an eye.

It all started with the Dherira singer violently pushing away security guards who were manning the entrance. Muridzo had not been amused by the guards’ insistence that he should remain outside.

“You should know who you are talking to. Of all the people, why did you single me out? Other artistes have easily made their way into the concert and not me, why?” asked the rising music star.

Muridzo’s behaviour did not go down well with the guards who felt humiliated.

“Tichakubata kana uchifunga kuti wakangwara,” said one of the guards.

But Muridzo, who was in the company of fellow artistes Sam Dondo and Carlos Green, seemed unperturbed.

The Dherira singer had been invited by Jah Prayzah as part of his Military Touch Movement stable. Muridzo, Tahle Wedzinza, ExQ, Nutty O and DJ Tamuka joined the Jerusarema hit-maker to perform the Military Touch Movement anthem — Chekeche — much to the delight of the crowd. It was a scintillating group performance that raised temperatures on the dance floor.

Though ExQ received a rousing reception after he performed his popular hits Nhema and Bhachura, it was Muridzo who stole the show. He was so popular that the crowd refused to let him go off the stage before he and Jah Prayzah could perform their duet — Emma. The two music stars obliged and what a scintillating performance it turned out to be!

After the Emma performance, Muridzo then sang Diamond’ Platnumz’s part on the hit Watora Mari. The Dherira singer seamlessly stepped into the East African star’s shoes, so well that the crowd chanted his name in appreciation.
