Matsito salutes promoters


SUNGURA musician Tedious Matsito, whose leg was amputated early this year, says he is grateful to music promoters who are facilitating shows for him to raise funds for the upkeep of his band and family.

Matsito’s leg was injured in an accident in Mutoko about five years ago and could not completely heal until doctors recommended that it goes under the knife.

The musician resumed shows last month, but many promoters did not have faith in his capability since he performs seated.

But his resilience is slowly attracting promoters’ attention and the musician says he is booked for shows throughout November.

One of the shows will be held tonight at Sports Diner International where he will share the stage with Oliver Mtukudzi.

It will be Matsito’s first high profile show since he resumed performances and he expressed gratitude to organisers of the show.

“We all know that Mtukudzi draws huge crowds and most musicians want to work with him,” said Matsito.

“Considering my health condition at the moment, I feel honoured to play before a huge crowd and show them that I am still capable of taking them through those big hits.

“I am now capable of playing for more than four hours and I hope the Sports Diner show will be an opportunity for me to start resuscitating my career.”

Matsito recently got a lifeline when a local bank pledged to buy him an artificial leg. He is currently going through a medical process that will prepare him for the artificial leg.

“The bank was my saviour. Very soon I will be able to stand on stage again and entertain my fans in the best possible way.

“With the support that is coming from promoters, I can see my career getting back on a good path again. I am really grateful to all these well-wishers.”

Barbara Chikosi of Red Rose Entertainment, organisers of tonight’s show said they were willing to offer the musician more shows so that he keeps his band intact and fends for his family despite his condition.
