Munyaradzi Munodawafa of Shandisa Chipo Chako fame is appealing for funding to travel to the United States for eye surgery.
The operation is supposed to be his last, but the young artist has hit hard times after some of the sponsorship pledges failed to materialise.
Many will remember the singer from the 1990s to early 2000s when he rocked the airwaves with his video Mwari Vanoona at a tender age.
“I was supposed to have gone for a third operation in 2010, which I would have been the final one, but I failed to get a visa,” he said.
“The operation is now overdue, but I really have to go since I risk losing my sight completely.
“That is why I have come to the public so that they can assist me.”
Munodawafa needs $5 000 since he has secured funding for his airfare.
When he went for the first operation in the US, he got assistance from fellow musicians who organised a concert at Harare Gardens.
The musician is currently riding high with his latest eight-track album titled Zvava Nezodzo that was recorded at Artisan Studios.
It carries tracks like Nzira, Zodzo, Nhaka, Kunamwari zvinoita, Munana, Suwo, Passover and Matambiro.
Recently, the musician left the crowd calling for more with his keyboard skills when he performed at the Special Schools Arts Festival that was held at St Giles Mission.
Munodawafa, who lives in Masvingo, was born visually impaired and underwent his first eye operation in the early ’90s with the help of well-wishers.
In 2000, he left Zimbabwe for the US for studies where he underwent his second operation.
Although the operation was successful, he is still partially blind and risks relapsing to his original condition if he fails to travel to the US for further surgery.
He said those willing to assist can contact him on 0773 275 587 or on his Facebook account Munyaradzi Kufakunesu Munodawafa.
