The musician now performs seated because he is yet to get an artificial leg. But this condition has not deterred the musician who seems ready to regain his fame.
Matsito has shared the stage with Oliver Mtukudzi in this “comeback campaign” and has featured on a number of top-drawer gigs.
At Tongai Moyo’s memorial gig at Harare Gardens, Matsito rose to the occasion causing ripples in the audience.
The veteran musician put up a brililiant performance, raising the spirits of the fans who thronged the venue.
Aided by his faithful outfit that has stood by him through the gruelling times of his life, Matsito’s performance was reminiscent of the coy and humble artist who caused a stir in the ’90s with tracks like Nyaradzo and Gede Mwana.
Tomorrow, Matsito and his band play supporting act to Sulumani Chimbetu at City Sports Bar, which becomes the former’s fourth major appearance.
After the horrific accident that resulted in the amputation of his leg, the musician has come out blazing.
Although an artificial leg has been secured, it is yet to reach the country from Germany where it was bought by BancABC.
Matsito says he is grateful for the support that he has been getting at his performances recently.
“People have been very supportive and we are grateful for that,” he said.
“Our acts are improving every day and that has encouraged us to keep on working hard.
“I am currently working on my forthcoming album which should be released soon and I have titled it Kurongerana as a tribute to the people that plan for the betterment of our lives daily.”
From the look of things, the music followers have shown interest and what remains to be seen is whether he will be able to get relevance in the highly competitive musical fraternity.
