Mtukudzi denounces ill-health report

OLIVER Mtukudzi is set to rock the United States with a string of performances this month starting Friday.

His manager Sam Mataure revealed that the acclaimed musician will also grace the APAP Conference - a global performing arts marketplace in New York.

Tuku kicks off his packed schedule with a show in Washington DC this Friday.

The US capital is a hub for Zimbabweans living in the DC Metropolitan covering Maryland and Virginia.

He will proceed to the East Coast and perform in Philadelphia and Boston, among other states.

The APAP platform will give Tuku a chance to meet and mingle with revered musical producers and promoters, Mataure told VOA.

“This is where artists go and showcase themselves through the booking agencies,” he said.

“There is a lot of networking and bookings that take place. A lot of festival organizers and club owners will be coming there to look for artists to book for either this year or next year.”

Mtukudzi has toured the US before, and knows full well where to find his fans. His gigs in and outside Zimbabwe normally sell out.

Tuku recently wowed his South African fans with a stellar performance at the Market Theater where he sat down for a CNN interview and revealed that he is not HIV positive.

The declaration is seen as an effort by the muso to permanently put to rest stubborn rumours about his status.
