His father is known for all-time hits that include Simbimbino, Kuroja Chete and Babamunini Francis.

Young Tembo, who has since taken his father’s band, is failing to hold live performances and to release his second album.
A band member who spoke on conditions of anonymity said the young musician is failing to manage the band.

“He is still young and in most cases we end up having two shows a month making life harder for band members and himself,” said the band member.

The 22 year old musician has one album Rwendo released in 2010.
Last year sungura ace Alick Macheso had promised to take him to be the curtain raiser for his shows, but he failed to honour his promise.

Tembo yesterday confirmed that all was not well with him, saying he is failing to hold shows because of financial difficulties.
“I can’t get any show and it is becoming difficult for me, but we are trying our best to try to take my father’s legacy ahead,” said Tembo.

He added that he was struggling to make his second album which he hopes to release by the end of this month.

“We are working on the songs, but currently we cannot meet the production cost because we are not getting shows,” he said.

Though he had the chance to perform at some of the national musical galas, it seems that is not enough to get the support required.

Miss MCCART ask me to contact Dr. I contacted him to help me bring back my husband and he ask me not to worry about it that the gods of his fore-fathers will fight for me. He told me by three days he will re-unite me and my husband together. After three day my husband called and told me he is coming back to sought out things with me, I was surprise when I saw him and he started crying for forgiveness and that he never knew what came upon him that he will never leave me again or the was the that was casted on him that was working on him. Right now I am the happiest woman on earth for what this great spell caster did for me and my husband, you can contact Dr.minsheal on any problem in this world, he is very nice, here is his contact He is the best spell caster.
