Tongai Moyo ‘Dhewa’s legacy revived ; now in safe hands


After years of missing the real Utakataka sound and voice, it seems the thirsty will be quenched by Goda Moyo, son to Tongai Moyo’s late elder brother.

In an exclusive interview with this publication, Goda Moyo reveals how his mother has been instrumental in making sure he follows his Uncle’s musical footsteps. ” Musically, my mother has been very supportive from my school days up to this day. She paid for me a private music teacher at primary level and bought me a guitar at 14″ Moyo said.

Goda Moyo is currently topping the charts with his latest album ‘Ndezvemoyo’ which carries six hot tracks. The tracks include Rufu, Vekwangu, Mambo Solomon, Wakonewa and Njiva. In the song Njiva, Goda revokes sweet memories of Tongai Moyo’s love songs like Chechete, Dhiya ndimirire, Hurungudo and Naye.

While many has expected a lot from Tongai Moyo’s eldest son , Peter Moyo it is apparently clear that the Young Igwe has failed to match his father’s voice, music prowess and consistency in churning out hit songs.

Goda Moyo besides his Tongai Moyo look alike physical appearance and swaggerish dressing has the late Igwe’s Voice and music prowess vindicated by an all hit album currently dominating the streets.

Moyo believes this is just the beginning of a great musical journey ahead. ” I can tell you this is just the beginning, we have super hits coming. While I have so much respect for my Uncle Tongai’s inspiration i would appreciate if fans regard my productions unique. I want to be my own man, with a unique music appeal” said Goda Moyo.

Unlike Peter and Tongai Obert jnr, Goda Moyo has decided to name his band differently. His band, Chipinda Express is a twelve member entourage based in Zvishavane. Popularly known as ‘ Vakomana vemuchiuno’ in Zvishavane, Chipinda express band members always appear smartly and uniformly dressed on stage.
