Thomas Mapfumo who has received the short-end of the stick from promoters on previous tours to the UK says he is happy with the promoters to brought him this time around.
“Everything was spot-on and the way we agreed. The problem with my previous promoters was that they were trying to promote themselves instead of promoting me,” said “Mukanya” in an interview with our Show Biz Correspondent.
The promoters, Roots Entertainment and Productions' “Musa” also told changezimbabwe that he was pleased with the three-date tour which saw Mukanya performing to near capacity crowds in Leicester, London and Leeds at the weekend.
He (TM) wanted to thank all the fans who came to see him and that he was thrilled that he had so much support in the UK.
His performances were on average about five hours, which pleased the fans.
Musa said he was starting out in the promotion business in the UK, and this tour had shown him some good lessons.
He was now planning on bringing other smaller artists.
“If big artists like Mukanya can say they were pleased with us, then this opens the doors for us to also try to promote other musicians in Zimbabwe, or even put on shows for artists who are already here,” he said.
Tongai Moyo, Madzibaba Zacharia, African Heritage and Zivanai were some of the acts that he was considering to promote, he said
