‘Dhewa’s shoes too big for Peter’

GOSPEL musician Pastor Charles Charamba has urged music fans not to compare young artiste Peter Moyo to his late father Tongai because the two were gifted differently.

Our Correspondents

Charamba has been giving vocal lessons to the Young Igwe, as Peter is affectionately known. Peter was last year turned away from a studio due to a bad voice. Most music critics have argued that the young musician is failing to fill the gap left by his father.

Charamba said it was impossible to have another Tongai in Peter.

“God created people in different ways and if we want to see another Tongai in Peter I think we would be wrong,” said Pastor Charamba.

“Peter is Peter and let us take him as he is. We should not compare him to his father.”

However, Peter depends on a bulk of Tongai’s songs for live shows and it could be difficult to distance him from his father.

Charamba’s remarks came after Peter announced that his first album will be released at the end of this month.

“I was in studio and I am happy that I have managed to record my first album with six tracks, namely Tutsotso, Konzi, Pasi rino, Mushonga mukuru, Mwari Wenyasha and Barika,” he said.

“I would like to thank all those who helped me in coming up with this project. The long time taken to record it was needed to learn and continue setting the standard my father set. This project will show that Utakataka Express is still alive.”

      Peter Moyo is not and I repeat is not a musician period. Ngaarege kuhwanda nekuti voice this and that. Nyaya iripo haasi muiimbi. A good example there are musicians who excelled with very poor voices like superstar TUKU and legendary THOMAS MAPFUMO. Ko kuzoti the late MASHAKADA. He must persue his own talent before its too late. Imi ma reporters ndimi munomukoresa musingamuudze chokwadi. Atori mutuvi pamukaka wakakora.

  17. elimond May 15, 2013 at 9:18 am #

    Supporter is right guyz, let Peter do wat he knows ok .look here Dembo Leornard’s music was correctly done by Tongai Moyo, his children cant do it and another example Machanic Manyeruke is a gospel musician but wats his son doing, so let us not compare like wat Charamba has said.

  18. daddy tee May 15, 2013 at 9:18 am #

    haa ini was a big fan ya tongai but this peter cant fit in his fathers shoes kunyanya voice charamba u are right let him to be his own,sulumani is the only akazvigona.

      Some of you just pass these comments and yet you have never been to any show staged by PETER. I have watched him and he has potential. In terms of composition of the songs (I have listened to them at his shows) he is far much original than his father who borrowed heavily from Dembo and Koffi. I agree with Pastor Charamba, give the young man a chance.

      Hate Macheso or what the guy is a genius and its fact.

    Sulumani has shown us that it can be done, taking his fathers music to another level. kuvharisa nyika yese kana anaMacheso hatichavanzwe……so let’s give Peter more time just like Sulu he will shine
