A music producer recently advised Moyo to refine his voice before going into the studio.
Moyo told NewsDay that he had approached Charamba because he needed vocal training.
“I was told to go and have thorough practice and I had to approach Pastor Charamba to assist me. I am getting tutorials from him,” said Moyo.
He said his father (the late Tongai Moyo) told him that he admired the vocal prowess of Charamba and his wife Olivia, adding that the late musician intended to record a song with them.
“My father had a plan to have a collaboration with the Charambas because he always admired the voices of the couple. That’s why I decided to approach them,” said the young musician.
Moyo said he was grateful to the musician for agreeing to teach him.
Charamba said he agreed to assist the young musician because of the relationship he had with his father.
“His father was a man who feared God and he would always call seeking divine assistance from us. Peter is like my son and I have to spare my time to assist him,” said Charamba.
The Nyika yeZimbabwe hit-maker said he was happy that the young musician was improving since he started assisting him.
“He is doing well now and I hope by the end of this year he will get into the studio to record his album.”
The “Young Igwe”, as Moyo is affectionately known, has a big task if his producer intends to record a voice that aptly matches his father’s timbre. Although he has improved at live performances, Moyo’s voice cannot be compared to his father’s.
