There seems to be no end in accolades coming Alick Macheso’s way.
The newly appointed Red Cross humanitarian ambassador could soon be rolling down the road in a brand spanking new Range Rover SUV courtesy of Premier Auto, a leading cardealer of Range Rover and Land Rover brands.
If the deal goes through, Macheso or simply “Extrabasso” to his fans, will join superstar Oliver Mtukudzi, who owns a Land Rover Discovery 4, courtesy of a similar endorsement deal.
The “Madhawu” singer was invited to the launch of the fourth edition of the latest Range Rover on Wednesday at Pabani in Glen Lorne among other guests in the motor industry.
Premier Auto business development manager Manfred Chaniwa confirmed the deal saying the “King of Sungura” was up for one of the latest luxury cars in the world.
“We have invited Macheso because he is a brand on his own, that complements very well with the Range Rover brand that we are showcasing to the world.
“His recent partnership with Red Cross is really something to respect and it will give us a chance to reach all corners through his powerful influence in the community,” said Chaniwa.
“Extrabasso” fans will be pleased to see him rolling in a new Range Rover with personalised plates while his first wife Nyadzisai could be driving a sleek Range Rover Evoque.
The Orchestra Mberikwazvo frontman a.k.a. Baba Sharo could not hide his joy at the gesture saying it was all through divine intervention.
“Wedenga wapindira ndokuona zvakakodzera kuti tinge tichiona zvibhora zvatingazongomhanya nazvo. Ndinotenda zvikuru ivo varidzi vechiitiko (God has intervened and I would like to thank the organisers for providing us a chance to view some of the cars that we will soon be driving).
“I had a feel of one of the cars and it was such an amazing feeling. Everything resembles an airplane,” he jokingly said.
Premier Auto business development director Cosy Marimo hailed the luxury SUVs Range and thanked Macheso for his role as the humanitarian ambassador to assist those in need. The event was attended by several guests, both local and foreign, including 17 officials from Range Rover in the United Kingdom.
