It is at sad note to announce that Zimbabwe’s Jazz legendary Oliver Mtukudzi has given into sickness after a battle.
The bigger than life music icon is said to have passed away a few minutes ago in a hospital bed at the Avenues in Harare.
He was 66-years-old and had released 66 musical albums in his career.
Messages of condolences have began pouring from friends and fans on social media.
The neria hit maker in 2013 revealed his HIV status and last year in November the jazz maestro suffered heart condition problems.
Sources close to the family have confirmed this news and have said funeral arrangements will be communicated in due course.
Mutikudzi is believed to have been worth a round figure of $80 million dollars.
Tuku died exactly a year after his friend South African icon Hugh Masekela passed on.
May his Soul Rest In Peace
