Selmor Mtukudzi lashes out at ‘unsupportive dad’

By Esther Gomo | Nehanda Showbiz |

Selmor Mtukudzi the daughter of music legend Oliver Mtukudzi has lashed out at her father accusing him of not supporting her music career the same way he did for his late son Sam Mtukudzi who died in a car crash.

In an interview with journalist Wonder Guchu, Selmor said “I think if I had my father’s support I would be somewhere else today cause I know, like you said, I am talented and this is what I am meant to be doing, music.”

She initially tells Guchu “I wish i could tell you more but if you start digging you will be shocked by what you find out.” Selmor however fails to hold back and launches into a heart-breaking narration of her challenges.

“I wish someone would write the whole truth. I’m tired of people asking me why I don’t have certain things or why I don’t have a better car, I am tired of coming up with excuses for my father.

“It’s also not fair on my mother who has supported me with the little she has from day one. People do not know that my mother was actually married and wedded with my father because Daisy (Mtukudzi’s current wife) wants people to think she is my father’s first wife.”

Responding to Guchu’s concerns that his initial article highlighting Selmor’s challenges might have caused her agony, Selmor says “You didn’t cause me agony you actually gave me hope that maybe my father will change the way he is treating me.”

Selmor alleges “no one wants to write anything bad about their legend except maybe Garikai (Mazara). But i don’t like the way he writes, he is not respectful and he seems to be out to destroy, that’s not what I want. I just want my dad to see that people know that he treats me bad because of his second wife.”

  • Israel Chipere

    She is lost..Mutukudzi came a long to be where he is today.This Selmor thinks she can rise to stardom overnight simply because Oliver is a legend.This is the first time to hear your name & honestly I don’t think yoou will make it in music.You are better off being a housewife than a musician.

    • tatenda

      you cant know her if you don’t follow music……some say she was/is way better in performance than Sam was.

    • Quartermaster Wacho

      Oliver Mkutudzi never helped her as his daughter that’s the point she is saying, the late Sam Mkutudzi had his father’s backing she doesn’t want to be Legend but wants fatherly help verenga zvakanaka

      • Chocco

        My point exactly. “I’m tired of people asking me why I don’t have certain things or why I don’t have a better car, I am tired of coming up with excuses for my father.” Her father built his career by himself. She should also do the same, not want to use her father as a stepping stone. Vana Alexio vari kusupportwa nevabereki here? If she was that good the world would have noticed!

        • Gutter Poet

          I think she has to grow up..if she were as good as she says then the world would have sat up to listen.

        • Ticafa Tazvigwira

          Many people may want to jump on Oliver’s defence but he has a duty to look after all his kids. If he left Selmor to fend for herself with her mother this is wrong. Tuku must be a role model. It makes us think that musicians are indeed an irresponsible lot. People must learn to treat children equally and people like Oliver must show the way. There are many children like Selmor who have been abandoned by their fathers and such fathers must be named and shamed.

        • tatenda

          if u knew what responsibility was….why have a child if u cant support them? muchatinetsa

  • Tendayi Mary Kazingizi

    Selmor why wash your dirty linen in the public? there is more to this story pple should her Tuku’s side of the story before judging anyone.

  • VaMutikizizi

    Sad story girl. But washing dirty linen in public will only put your dad on the defensive and you may not get the desired results. Trust in Jesus,you can make a name for yourself without dad’s help. Thank God for what you have already, a good marriage and a budding career. You are not where you want to be but you are not where you used to be… Thank God for that and expect more!

    I understand Selmor better than any one else coz I grew up in that situation.I just saw one stepmother who was treating her step daughters & sons like her children,I mean one.Anyway Selmor don’t expect anything more from him nw,he failed already.Don’t worry much just work hard for u don’t know what future holds for u.Love him,he’s yo dad & nothing will change that.

    She ain’t a kid anymore instead of dwelling on what her father is not doing she ought to focus on her career.it looks to me like she ain’t got confidence in herself.If this is true then she should work hard and prove to her father that she don’t need his help

    Thats sad. I feel Tuku should own up to his mistakes. He is a legend yes but l think he has his shortfalls. I asked some guys wen l attended his birthday bash where l noticed he didnt want to have much interaction with Selmor and her husband dispite their efforts. I believe he has another Son he is neglecting and the sunday mail once profiled him. Take responsibility old man and set a gud example

  • Baba Tana

    shame on you Samanyanga.As a role model u shld lead by example.

  • Farai

    what Tuku and people must know is girls tend to be closer to their dad’s and fathers play a major role in a girls life,most kids go through a lot as they grow because they do not have a male figure in their life,it affects the childs life because we need that love from a father,thats why most woman look for that in man because vanga vasingazviwani kubva kuna baba vavo,so please fathers never neglect your children nyange pasina mari its the love that makes a deference,Selmor it is well my dear God is there just reach out to him he will embrace you with love that no man can give you

    Selmor, you are a married woman and you should be independent from your father. You have benefited from the name Mtukudzi and it’s enough. Take responsibility woman and stop blaming others. Did Zhakata benefit from the support of his parents, if I may ask?

    being a good musician does not qualify anyone to be a good father! mwana mwana if she needs help and papa is in a position to help, its only noble for him to assist. God has blessed atleast one person in a family so that they uplift others in that family! Lets not be selfish and uncaring!

  • Aaron Chemvura

    Why does she want Tuku’s support? She has a husband musician and a father-in-law who was a legend during his tym. She lacks natural talent and is beyond polishing. Sam was in a class of his own and needed little encouragement from Tuku. Selmor wake up and smell the coffee…you just are not made for music

  • Fiona Zororo Ruzvidzo

    Vanhu vajaira kungo piwa zvinhu muzvipunu. If she has talent she doesn’t need her dad to make her carreer a success. We have all made something out of ourselves and didn’t have dad to prop us up. Wake up Selmor and do your own thing. Look at Amara Brown, her dad id long gone but she is going places.

  • Fiona Zororo Ruzvidzo

    Sis Betty Makoni this is not about the girl child. Honestly its not . Its about someone with no talent wanting the same benefits as those with the talent. Just because Sam and her dad could and can sing does not mean she can. And its possible Bla Oliver saw this a long time ago. What kind of support does she want anyway? i’ve heard her sing and honestly I was not impressed. If she can sing then she will get to the top with or without her father’s support. You cant stop a tornado with your hands now can you?

  • Fiona Zororo Ruzvidzo

    “I’m tired of people asking me why I don’t have certain things or why I don’t have a better car, I am tired of coming up with excuses for my father.” She expects her father to buy her a better car???? Whatever for??? And besides she is married is she not. Vatezvara vachengete mukwasha manje. Selmor get a life please!!!!!!! Maybe music is not her thing. Go on do something else please.

  • Anne Kawenda Mudzingwa

    This has got nothing to do with her being a “girl child”. As a parent you nurture what talent there is but when there is none what can you do. She had expected to ride on the back of her fathers name. She can be the opening act for all of her dads shows but that still won’t improve her status as a musician. She will always be mwana wemunhu anoimba chaizvo and not the one anoimba chaizvo. What is her Husband doing to support her

Daisy akangwara because she has mastered the art yekusunga murumo wake kuti asataure whenever Selmor had blurted out stupid things such as these. Arikurwa shanje

  • Mazvi

    I would like to believe that Selmor’s sentiments and feelings expressed in this article did not just surface today. I have known her since before she was married and I understand where she is coming from. True there was never any support, at the time I came to know her one would never have even believed she really was Tuku’s daughter. Kana baba vari legend ngavasimudzire vana vavo and this business yekuti aroorwa ngaachengetwe nemurume wake is nonsense, its a Shona tradition yenhando. Isu vamwe takaroorwa asi whether tezvara or not my father supports us and is there when we need him saka Tuku haana nyaya. Vana vake ngaachengete, ndokunzi murume. One more thing, Selmor is a talented musician and is set to go places. I am amazed by those saying she should stop doing music, ndokunonzi kuvenga manje.

    When one woman speak outs, she speaks not only for herself but for other women. The author of this article could have used a better title like Selmour ‘pleads’/’wishes’ to be recognized as deserving the same rights as if she had been a girl child. She is actually trying to address gender inequality and patriachial cultural tendencies that girl child are treated like 2nd class citizens and dont get the same recognition as boy children. Well done Selmour on stopping the silence on the prevalence of gender inequality in our community.

Selmor used to come to school neuniform yakabvaruka asina kana juzi muwinter, i was her best friend in primary school. She didnt bring tuck or pocket money achinzwisa tsitsi. As kids we were always wondering why her father didnt buy her stuff. If anything you people should be feeling sorry for her. Some of you didnt even read the full story, its on Wonder Guchu’s blog. please read for yourself then comment.

  • Inside info

    The issue is not that Selmor wants her father to give her money or buy her a car…she has already done so much for herself without any help from him.What she wants is the same support he gave Sulu,Willom,Munya and especially Sam.
    Selmor had to pay to record at her father’s studio but Sam didn’t.
    Selmor was not included in Nzou neMhuru but Sam was.
    Selmor was fired from Tuku’s band but Sam stayed.

  • kwekwe based

    Oliver and his wife left Sandra, (Oliver’s first born,the one that looks like him the most) at their house in Kwekwe when she was only 17. Akangodzoka kubva kubasa kwaaishanda at some small clothes shop ndokusvikowana imba yava ground mangosara ka three quarter bed chete. they had moved to their new mansion in Norton. Havana kana kumuudza only to be told by the garden boy kuti ana boss ndovatakura zvinhu but havana kutaura kuti kuendepi. She started living with the garden boy in that empty 4 bedroomed house achibika nemoto for about 2 months. Daisy and Oliver then came back for their fairwell church service thats when they told Sandra kuti they have moved to a new house in Norton so she was instructed to look for somewhere else to stay coz the house yanga yakuda kurenteswa. Even though Sandra begged to stay mu cottage since her job was not paying well vakaramba. So she found a bhoiskaya(handizivi spelling) in Fitchlea where she moved and started staying with a friend at the age of 17. Tuku had just bought a cell phone paya achangotanga but did not even give her daughter kuti if anything happens unongofona apa. Sandra only got her father’s number from a cousin after avharirwa mvura and she had no money to pay. The cousin begged Sandra not to reveal kuti ndiye amupa number coz she(the cousin) would get into trouble.

    Sandra came to our house crying asvika imba iri empty angosiiwa nagarden boy with no food, no contact number only a three quarter bed and a black pot yekuti vaibika muriwo vokutura vobika sadza. imagine a 17year old living with a 40 something years old man under the same roof vachitobika vese baba vaenda nemhuri yavo to a new and beautiful house. Didnt she need more support then coz clearly she was still young and needed support from her parents. BUT when Faith Kadzura (Daisy’s daughter from another married guy)uyuka Faith who claims to be Faith Mutukudzi paakawana basa kukwekwe it was automatic that she would live in the cottage yaTuku iya yekurambirwa Sandra and it was fully furnished….Pafungei

    • Amazing Grace

      While I sympathise with Selmer as a forty something old man the advice i can give her is that she should move on. She cannot make someone love her. I know how it is to grow up unloved. I was telling my children a story about 2 days ago that when I was about to start form one in 1984 my father went to Harare bought my sister a book case, mathematical set and I am not sure what else he bought but did not bring me not even a pen. The shoes I wore to school when I started form one I bought them from the money I got from selling sweets. I am able to tell the story becuase I have moved on and God has blessed me. God does not overlook the tears of the suffering. My elder brother actually testified that I was the least loved child. I am now sending one of his chidren to school.
      My point to Selmar and others is that let God fight your battles(2 Chronicles 20:15)

    @Hon Dare… i do not think kuti her personal life is of utter importance here, but the main issue at stake here is the relationship between parents and children, and how everyone shld strive to help the other. Also the issue is that of how much pain is caused when first marriages break leaving children to the mess of stepmothers. l do not care much about her sex life at all, but about how successful people sideline there biological chldren

    i think the young sista should concerntrate on building her career, in music u dont wake up being a legend , there is a learning phase and u still need to grow ,whether your talent is natured or not if u have music in your spirit it will come out, yes sam got his father`s support but the boy had talent in him , listen to cheziya you will agree with me.the other thing is that you should not wash your dirt cloth in public , find a better way not the media,

  • Pane vamwe

    Both Tuku and his daughter are each concerned about their relationship I think. Selmor feels that she isn’t getting enough support from the father and the father also sang “Hazvirevi rudo handina.” I don’t know what he meant exactly but in case it had to do with his daughters it means he also wants his daughters to understand his plight and probably sympathize with him.

    It would be favourable for Tuku to support his daughter but the daughter must be prepared to move on with her life in case the father doesn’t realize the need fully. Love can not be demanded even if its the best thing to express to somebody.

    I don’t think there is anything wrong with supporting your child if you really love them.Age has nothing to do with it because your child will always be your child nomatter how old.(Huya hako gotwe rangu weee dzoka,zamu rakamirira iwe dzoka uyamwe.Kukurumura kwandakaita gore riya,pawaka siira ndipapo dzoka).

    Mtandazo Dube
    Remember Selby Tapiwa Mtukudzi? The then 27-year-old love child of Africa’s Top 10-ranked celebrity, Oliver “Tuku” Mtukudzi, that this publication unearthed last year?
    He is a troubled soul, desperate to be united with the rest of the Mtukudzi family and currently failing to cope with life’s challenges.
    The now 28-year-old former Roman Catholic priesthood aspirant seems to be unable to shed his “lonely” childhood figure, which almost saw him becoming a priest.
    In a complete turnaround, Selby is now seeking solace in prostitute-infested nightclubs and beerhalls, sometimes even begging for alcohol.
    This reporter has made several encounters with the ex-Arrupe Theological College student who graduated with a BA Honours in Philosophy last year. The young man, whose lips have been ravaged by years of puffing nicotine and drinking, has resorted to just blabbing to anyone who cares to listen.
    During a recent encounter with Selby, he could not withhold any information about his “family”, especially stories about Mtukudzi and his relationship with his daughters.
    “My father is a very principled man, you know. Whenever any one of his daughters gets pregnant out of wedlock he chases them away,” began Selby’s apparent narration of the secrets of the Mtukudzi family.
    He continued: “People don’t even know why mdara (Mtukudzi) failed to attend Dhewa’s funeral. The family had gone to Dande where some guys who impregnated Sandra a while ago were paying lobola.
    “Bright Matonga was actually the go-between for one of his friends who knocked up Sandra about three years ago. There were serious disputes because when she got pregnant and mdara chased her away the guy just stayed with her and didn’t even bother to make contact.
    “So you can imagine the fury when this guy showed up after three years wanting to pay damages/lobola. Apparently, there were rumours the guy (Charles) could be married and that was also a cause for serious problems but things were later resolved,” narrated Selby.
    Sandra confirmed most of the details given by Selby, although she could not give the exact dates of her traditional marriage, saying only that “it was in late October”, which is around the same time that Dhewa was buried at his rural home in Sesombe.
    She also confirmed that she, indeed, has a son and that Matonga was involved in the negotiations, which were done “kumusha” but declined to shed more light, saying: “When lobola negotiations are being done women are not that involved especially the one being negotiated for.”
    On her relationship with Selby, Sandra said she was not yet prepared to comment on the issue, as she is just a minor.
    “I’m just a daughter. I cannot be seen commenting about such issues, my father and his wife would be the best people to talk to,” she said.
    Selby also spoke of how proud Mtukudzi is of his daughter Selma, married to Tendai Manatsa, because she got married without any problems while everyone else had problems of some sort including Daisy’s daughter, Faith, who also had to be chased away from home when she got pregnant.

    He also said he was excited about his sister’s wedding to “Father” (Tinashe Nengomasha). “Isn’t it you know that Tinashe is not his real name? There will be drama I tell you, I wonder what they will write on the invitation cards or marriage certificate,” said Selby.

    It was recently reported that Samantha was pencilled in to wed Nengomasha yesterday in Harare.
    It seems only Mtukudzi has not brought himself to acknowledge that Selby is, indeed, his son as this reporter in the company of other reporters from this stable has spotted Selby with other Mtukudzi family members including Selma (Mtukudzi) and Tendai Manatsa.

    Mtukudzi, whose Hazvireve Rudo Handina Mwanangu hit seems to be an apology to his illegitimate child(ren), insists he had only one son, the late Sam, who died in a car crash on March 15 last year

  • Topaz

    Nhai veduwee iye Serima uyu haasiriye here wekuimbirwa this song called HAZVIREVI RUDO HANDINA yakaimbwa nababa vake.Parents make mistakes but this is not the way to solve family issues, this is not the way to make your father see whatever you want & get respect. Go & apologise kunababa vako . As children sometimes we might never understand some things parents did way back but late rafter you sit down with them wakura then you might undertand some situations. If mubereki akakanganisa & you sit down naye humbly munonzwanana ufunge. Izvi zveMedia izvi wakanya Serima thats the truth.

Why not raise tangible arguments like these other guys are? I dont support tuku at all, but i have every reason to blame Selmor too. Look at those kids vari paPakare paya,all they are getting from tuku is the refinement of their talent,nekungopiwa gitare chete kana asingakwanisi kutenga.

    Apa selmor going on with life as usual daisy was never there for them saka kwavari life goes on the only good thing is that people no what happened in the tuku household and from comments above kuds tried to tell dady their problems which they should have not done at all coz a good dad shold no welfare yevana vake especially paine step mother inenge daisy but iye anoti imi vana thee is nothing wrong so iye kana azopepuka kuti ane vamwe vana then he can look for them before that it may be suffer continue for the kids but as another writer above said even ana munya play for free and are not happy but vanotua kutaura . Tuku as a person akaomera but haazive wr to stop his stingyness coz nekuvana kwese haadi kuburitsa except vadaisy coz mai vavo fights their corner. So as selmor said i just want someone to write the truth i think she is happy tuku has a house in south africa for iye daisy and their beloved ana selmor havasvikeko no address and norton its by invite so hapana to cheku repair i building bridges thats needed and tuku can afford zvaakwari kufuga nekuwarira nekuomera jwake ikoko he is just stingy

  • Themba Mlangeni

    Nyaya iyi inoratidza chinhu chimwe chete – that in any relationship – blodd or otherwise – it is necessary to manage perceptions. It doen’t matter what you buy or do for the other person – do not forget to manage the perception. Selmor thinks daddy vake havamu supporte – and thats what Tuku has to deal with. Sometimes it just takes a serious and very honest chat zvisina kana mari mukati to set things straight. Love, and showing it, is the best medicine. I think both Selmor and Tuku need counselling.

    ZIMBABWEAN music legend Oliver Mtukudzi has been forced to publicly defend his reputation after a damaging burst of accusations by family and friends of his former guitarist, Philani Dube, who died last week.

    The veteran Zimbabwean singer, in South Africa on business, has been accused of abandoning Dube and failing to come to his aid as he lay in hospital, dying.

    Mtukudzi failed to attend the funeral last Wednesday, but provided fuel for a van that ferried Dube’s body from Harare to his hometown of Bulawayo for burial. Mtukudzi also provided funds for the coffin.

    South Africa’s City Press newspaper reported Sunday that residents of Chitungwiza, where the long-serving guitarist died last week, were shocked to see his coffin being loaded into an old ramshackle van, which was to ferry him to his final resting place in Bulawayo, some 500 km away.

    “The hearse attracted the attention of scores of residents who came out to watch the grim spectacle in disbelief,” City Press reported.

    The battered blue van was the only vehicle that was available to ferry Dube’s coffin, his widow, children and relatives to Bulawayo.

    As the coffin was placed in the van and the 12 accompanying passengers squeezed in beside it, the skorokoro slumped so low everybody wondered if it would make even half the trip, the paper reported.

    The car had been offered free of charge by Dube’s friend, Dickson Maponga. Mtukudzi’s manager, Sam Mataure, told the family that Tuku Music company did not have a vehicle to ferry the corpse or mourners.

    The company could only provide fuel for the trip. But the “hearse” ran out of fuel in the middle of a forest along the Harare-Bulawayo highway around midnight.

    The people accompanying the body spent the cold night crammed in the van with the coffin while arrangements were made to have fuel brought from Bulawayo.

    But Mtukudzi, who is in South Africa on business, said he was not responsible for the shocking send-off given to Dube.

    He says Dube left his band a long time ago but that from time to time when he saw posters advertising a Black Spirits Band show, he would bring his own guitar and join them.

    Mtukudzi say he could not chase him away because he had worked with him for many years.

    “I bought the coffin and the fuel. If the car ran out of fuel along the way it is not my problem, blame it on the economic situation back in Zimbabwe because fuel shortage is a problem.

    “I had no obligation to contribute towards the funeral, but because I am an African, I know that we have to help each other in times like these.

    “And then I get blamed like this. As a colleague, you can only do so much. The rest of the work is for the family to decide what they want to do.”

    Meanwhile, at New Magwegwe, Bulawayo, mid-morning the following day, relatives and friends had gathered to give their hero a send-off. They were shocked when he arrived in the groaning ramshackle van.

    “They expected something worthy of Mtukudzi’s name. They were further angered by the absence of Mtukudzi and the rest of the band,” Elfigio Maponga, a friend, told City Press.

    “Philani would have been alive today if he had been given the necessary medication, food and comfort that these people denied him,” fumed Maponga.

    Another friend, Paniso Nyilenda, added: “He scrounged for food and could not afford medicines. He had to surrender his cellphone as collateral in order to have a chest X-ray taken, three days before his death.

    “He did not have the $300 000 (about R30) that was needed. None of them assisted in any way. No-one visited him.”

    Maponga added: “We phoned Mtukudzi last week when Philani was bed-ridden and in severe pain, but he would not assist with money to buy even painkillers.

    “Tuku actually told Philani on the phone while I listened that he too was experiencing dire financial problems.”

    Mtukudzi said his conscience was clear. “They say I could not even buy him painkillers, but they won’t tell you that I have been buying him ARVs for a long time. When I help a person, I don’t blow my own horn.”

    Dube was one of the two remaining original members of The Black Spirits, Mtukudzi’s backing group.

    Dube was dropped from the band and replaced by Clive “Mono” Mukundu. Mono himself is no longer with the band after another reshuffle.

    I think people who are saying Selmor is now married and should go on with her life are a bit harsh on her. Relationships – especially blood relationships – do not change with time or age. hazvinei nekuti Selmor ava ne 30, 50 or even 70 years – mwana wa Tuku and as such should be given the fartherly love and care as bestowed by this relationship. Of course the way you care for your child in high school is different from the way you would care for mwana ane mhuri yake or even vazukuru. But the bottom line is that mwana wako chete. Thats why iye Tuku akaimba Dande mai vake vachimuti dzoka uyamwe. Its never too late to be there for your children no matter how old they are. I am 50 yr old professional with my own family – my eldest daughter is 27 and graduated from university 5 years ago. I lost my mother beginning of this year and you wont believe how much havoc has come my way. In fact right now I am busy trying to lose the 8 kilos I have gained since she left. Actually I never imagined that a big man like me needs a mother. But the point I am making is that she used to support me. I might have been the one providing for all her material needs but, wherever I was, whatever problems I had, the knowledge that i had a loving mother gave me some strength. So I think thats what Selmor missed – the knowledge that daddy vake is there for her, even if it means in herat and spirit only. She is not crying for mari ya Tuku but just to be called mwanangu.

  • taka

    Hey…Tuku akaoma vakomana!

  • Aga

    Yes themba that love gives peace of mind and one can prosper!!!!

  • Aga

    Even anatongai vakafa haaende kunhamo coz anoti havana kunge vakarongeka iye chete ndiye akarongeka because akabudirira pane vese

  • Charmaine

    Selma ngaashande I totally agree, aa mukadzi mukuru, hupwere hwakatopera wena. Whatever differences she has with her dad, she needs to get past them. Kune chirwere chinonzi Hypertension, a silent killer. Unofa like a joke nekukwirira BP mari yausina kushandira.

  • Themba Mlangeni

    Siyayi Selmor a spoiliwe nababa vake. Pane munhu here asingadi ku spoiliwa – be it nemurume wake, nemudzimai wake, nemwana wake, nababa vake – its just human nature. Ko munogomuti ngaakanganwe nezvababa vake aite zvoupenyu hwake sei sekunonzi baba ndi employer wokuti kana wa resigna kana kudzingwa zvapera. As long as Tuku achibvuma kuti ndiye baba vake – NAYE! nemumvura mese kunosvika kuDande.

  • Marcus

    I agree with you Themba.Mwana wako mwana wako chete nyangwe akura sei.I was at Hifa this year were Tuku was performing.During the perfomance he said “Im going to call my daughter to come and join me .”People started calling out Selmor’s name because she is the one we know and expected to appear but we were surprised to see some girl joining him.
    The guy I was with commented,”Ko mdara uyu indava akapusa.Apa ndipo paanga achifanirwa kupinza mwanasikana wake mustayera,” but I brushed it off.Now after reading about this I understand mamiriro azvo.Reminds me of John Chibadura’s song “NDIWE HERE MUDIWA JANET…KUBVIRA MUSI WATAKADANA NDAKAKUUDZA KUTI NDINE VANA VANGU…NHASI UNO ZVAVE KUFAMBA SEI ZVAWAVE KUTI HAUDI VANA VANGU.”
    It seems Daisy pretended to love the Superstar’s kids just so she could get him to put a ring on her finger.As soon as she got what she wanted she started singing a different tune.SHAME ON HER.

  • Marcus

    I was also at Winter Jazz Festival at Jazz 105 and I saw Selmor Mtukudzi performing.It was my first time to see her on stage and I remember thinking to myself that how come she is not recognised in the country.She performed right at the end and the others acts before her were nothing special so much that people were just seated.When she got on stage i remember i was on my feet dancing until the end.I remember the last song was “Simudza gumbo,maoko mudenga” and vanhu vaiita pressure kuti vakwire pastage and dance with Selmor.She is truely talented.

  • Mavhuto

    I have watched Selmor twice @ Jazz 105 as welland what a superb. She is a fantastic singer (not sure about the hubby though) I remember thinking, the crew was not well dressed etc. Now it makes sense that she is struggling in the music industry BUT my advice to Selmor is God’s answer in not selective, you are a good singer better than Sam. Hear hear hear and you will be rewarded one day!

  • jonga

    inga zvinoitika zvakaoma muupenyu…i thot tutu ws mo organised ndakangonzwa kuti daisy anoshusha pamusikana wasam ainzi ane nhumbu i never thot it was ths bad..

  • Memo

    Oliver Mtukudzi: Yes, everything. But, men run away from that. They become bossy. A good leader is not bossy. He is a good listener, should listen to what the children are saying and come to terms with the conditions.

  • Surprised

    Really surprised nezvandanzwa.heya ndozvavari baba ava. Hameno havo ngavafumurwe.

  • gimmo

    lol Selmor please, please.. you were given a chance 12 years ago hapana zvawakaita. Isn’t not Tuku your dad who introduced you in the music scene, iwe ndokutizira hako kwaManatsa. So, why you complaining as if Tuku is responsible for your unsuccessful music career. Sam, was a hard working young-man. See what he left in a space of 3years 2 albums, plus multiple singles. There is only one place that Sam had startied knowing the ‘STUDIO’ were he spent most of his life hours at. Fix your ways first..

  • MaiTino

    Let us be honest and tell the young woman the honest truth. Yes you have the talent. Yes your father is a legend in the industry. It would be very unfair for him to carry you in his back and nurse you like a small baby. My father had enough money. I left Zimbabwe 5 years ago and came to SA with nothing. I never fought with my father or accused him of anything. I only needed his blessings and here I am today. I hustled everything by myself and today I hold my dignity and thank God for everything. I do not owe anyone anything but only hardwork. My advice to you would be, get out there and do something for yourself and prove your worth. And to the guys who comment let us remember this is her father who knows her better than most of us who read about them. He has his reasons why he is taking the back seat. good luck sister

    • Bethu

      well said, you cannot spoon feed your children forever, they need to learn the ropes of life and become independent. You should not raise your children to be cry babies, you want them to toughen up and face3 the world

  • Gandalf

    Wedded with my father??? really? really?

  • Bethu

    Selmor is in her mid 30s, she is an old woman who should have made a name for herself by now. She once was rising, I remember in 2004 when Hillcrest College in Mutare had a cultural show, she was invited to perform, but her appearance fee was as huge as her fathers, the school could just not afford her. She wanted to ride on her father’s name instead of taking time to build her own legacy n her own following. Now she cries fowl.
    She used to make adverts as a child with Andy Brown, the olivine advert, i think thaat was the dad trying to promote her. You have no idea how frustrating it is for a parent to keep pumping money on a child who is talentless. Now its no longer a singing career, its about a car. I don’t blame Tuku at all, he tried his best

  • Sinyoro

    Why blame Oliver? Selma is an adult of 30years of age anoda kuzorumurwa zvaita sei? She wants to be a parasite until when?

  • ray

    That’s why black people muchingova vanhu vanotambura ,its because hamusiire vana venhu legacy why kutanga patswa ivo baba vavakumusoro uko.Mtukudzi anotya daisy period at the expense of his kids and they didn’t
    apply to be here on earth.Haungoite vana pese pese uchiti vachazvitangira vega asi vana vemukadzi ve2 iye daisy vachipiwa pokutangira…..tuku can be a legend but what he is doing to his kids is stupid
