I don’t use juju: Alick Macheso
SUNGURA exponent Alick Macheso has responded to people who say he uses juju to strum the guitar the way he does. It is all about hard work and talent, Macheso says.
Macheso said he is doing well because of the hard work he puts in his work.
Said Macheso: “I spend six hours or more on stage performing live, three or four days in a row. “At times I sleep in the studio recording, away from my family. Those who say I use juju, I challenge them because if juju could sing why don’t they give it guitars so it can bring money?”
He was speaking to the Daily News at the Oliver Mtukudzi funeral in Norton.
The sungura kingpin also said that he did not sing the song ‘Chikuru Kurarama’ for his daughter Sharon who divorced or his former wife Tafadzwa.
He said the song is about marriages in general and that people should separate iff they are no compatible.
Said Macheso: “People say a lot, others said it had been sung for Tafadzwa but the message is clear. If people are not compatible even after marriage they should be allowed to separate before they kill or injure each other.
“There is no need to force things, if it is not working it is not … couples will end up boiling cooking oil and injuring each other or even striking a partner with a log on the head.”
Macheso said despite Sharon’s divorce, he will look after her and the granddaughter.
