Charamba said he decided to give Tembo the complete kit after realising that the young musician had the potential to keep his father’s legacy alive.
“I have seen him performing and I am convinced that he can take his father’s music further. The way he conducts his stage work is good,” said Charamba.
The Nyika yeZimbabwe hitmaker said he was inspired by the late Tembo’s music, which led him to develop interest in the musician’s son.
“I was one of his (the late Tembo) loyal fans. We met at a Christian college in Glen Norah and he gave me courage to start my own music,” he said.
Speaking to NewsDay yesterday, Tembo (Jr) said he was humbled by Charamba’s gesture.
“Lack of equipment was one of my big problems. I am grateful to Baba Charamba who has just done it from his heart,” said Tembo.
The 24-year-old musician said receiving the instruments had inspired him to work on a new album which he said would be ready by early next year.
“After giving me the instruments, he advised me to take my father’s music further and I feel greatly inspired. I am working on a new album that I hope to release next year.”
He said he was happy with the response he was getting from fans and the support from fellow musicians.
“It explains the relationship my father had with his fans and other artistes because their support is encouraging. We are happy,” added Tembo.
