Marxist Dendera front man Tryson Chimbetu is mulling dumping his recording company Zimbabwe Music Corporation (ZMC) accusing the stable of failing to market his two albums he recorded there.
The young musician who is son to late dendera maestro Naison recorded his albums Marxist Revival and Bvamrod at the popular stable.
He blasted the recording company for “poor management” and revealed he is contemplating doing his next projects at either Diamond Studios or Alick Macheso’s Last Power Media.
While preferring to remain tight-lipped on the contents of his contract with ZMC, Chimbetu said he was given a raw deal.
“I do not think I will go back to ZMC because they failed to market my albums very well and also I did not benefit anything from them. There is poor management there so I do not think it would be wise to go back. I am thinking of trying Diamond or Last Power Studios and open another chapter in my career,” said Chimbetu.
Chimbetu’s decision may not come as a surprise after the release of Bvamrod took long after recording due to a row between the musician and the record company over contractual issues.
Asked to comment on the issue ZMC managing director Emmanuel Vori said he would not comment unless invited together with Chimbetu for a face-to-face interview.
“I do not to comment on rumours anymore. Unless you come together with Tryson I will not comment. Whatever I may say about him I will only say in his presence,” he said.
Vori said reporters should stop questioning involved parties separately, but instead invite the people involved together to get a fair and balanced comment.
Chimbetu said he would soon get into the studio to record his third album titled Nguva YaChimbetu which would be carrying seven or eight tracks.
