TALENTED gospel musician Sebastian Magacha, who was recently accused of failing to settle a $250 debt, has been rescued by a “Good Samaritan”.
It is alleged that the Ridza Bhosvo hit-maker had contracted Guide Zvenyika of Masters of Art Printers to design
5 000 album sleeves for his younger brother Tinashe’s debut album that is signed under his stable, SabaMusic.
According to Zvenyika, Magacha had been unable to settle the debt for the past two months with efforts to recover the money becoming increasingly fruitless as Magacha became elusive, giving Zvenyika constant excuses.
He said the gospel musician continued to give excuses for a long period and it had not pleased Zvenyika leading to him resorting to humiliating the musician by posting the matter on social networking site Facebook as a way of trying to make Magacha pay his dues.
“I can confirm that this matter has been settled with the aide of someone else and I have already forgiven the musician,” Zvenyika said.
He said the Good Samaritan was a member of a leading inter-denominational gospel choir, Zimpraise, whose name he would not divulge.
Zvenyika added that he had since realised that taking the matter to Facebook was a very good idea as it had paid off for him.
Responding to the debt issue, Magacha said he would not comment about what happens on social networks.
“I don’t comment on such issues that are discussed on Facebook. I don’t know why he took the matter to the Zimpraise Facebook wall yet I am also on Facebook,” Magacha said.
The musician added that he was only cited in the media for bad things yet the good he does never gets recognition.
“When I do good things, you don’t want to write, but such issues make news to you. Go ahead and write what you want,” Magacha said.
