Legendary musician Thomas Mapfumo, also known as Mukanya, finds himself at odds with Zim dancehall king Winky D and award-winning superstar Jah Prayzah, as the three musicians failed to reach an agreement for a joint show in England. Mapfumo, often referred to as the lion of Zimbabwe, has been living in self-imposed exile for over two decades.

Despite this, he recently announced his plans to host a highly anticipated show in England, inviting people to attend what he promises to be one of his finest performances.

“I have sought to tell you that l am personally going to have a show on 24 June 2023 which l organized with my own resources,” he said

The show was said to serve as a token of appreciation in bidding farewell to the fans in England who immensely contributed to the success of the legendary.

Mukanya set tongues wagging after he took it to the social media in a prerecorded video which reviewed that he does not have anything to do with a show featuring Winky D and Jah Prayzah among other artists lined up for the show to be hosted in England.

“ There is another show by others who are going to have a memorial show for their loved one who passed away but you should expect my show not that one. I am not part of the show by Winky D, Jah Prayzah and late Oliver Mutukudzi’s children among other artists,” he said.

The musician further elaborated that he distanced himself from the show by Winky and Jah Prayzah only resorting to hold a show by himself which is alluded to misunderstandings which occurred between the artiste and the two musicians.

“I do not want to be on that show because l am at logger heads with these guys. Their way of doing things is contrary to how I operate,” he said.
