SELF-PROCLAIMED King of Zora, Leonard 'Karikoga' Zhakata has dismissed news that he has quit his 20-year-old music career to pursue pastoral duties at UFIC, a denomination led by prophet Makandiwa.




Zhakata is set to perform at a high profile show tomorrow (Saturday) at Pick and Save Supperrette alongside granddad of Zimbabwean music, Oliver Mutukudzi and Harare-based talented outfit, Talking Guitar.

In an exclusive interview with the tried-and-tested lyricist and seasoned composer, Zhakata described the rumours as malicious and career damaging.

He, however said that his music has always been impregnated with holy teachings and has been a blessing to his legion of fans.
"I do not have the right to comment about UFIC but I am talking to you in my personal capacity.

"ZORA music has always been a way of preaching to the people. In a Godly way I have managed to make my lyrics a blessing to those who appreciate my music. God wants me to reach all corners of the world through music.

"I am not going to be a pastor but I am pursuing extensive bible studies. I have not scaled down performing live shows and those writing about those falsehoods that I am leaving music or rather canceling live shows to become a pastor are up to something. I think they have a personal vendetta. No one ever talked to my manager about canceling shows only to read it in newspapers.

"I am promising fans fireworks at Saturday's show, I am promising them surprises and perfections. This is such an honour to perform alongside Mutukudzi, " said the Mugove hit-maker.

Superstar Oliver Mutukudzi will tomorrow perform at the venue with his fully-fledged group ' Black Spirits in a show dubbed, Farewell show.
Tuku, as he affectionately known by his legion of fans is set to leave Zimbabwe to stage various shows in USA.
Ironically this is also his first show in 2013.

Tuku last performed at the venue late last year.

That day he left many who attended the show in a trance with his touch-of-class act and the trademark Katekwe dance.

The family shows start at 2 pm. Fun lovers will part with $10 on the gate.

The show promoter and Pick and Save proprietor, Esau Mupfumi confirmed the show.

He said: "We are starting early to allow families to have an ideal time with their favourite artistes.  This will be a befitting send-off for Mutukudzi who will be staging international shows soon.

"Pick and Save now accommodates 4 000 revelers and we urge fun lovers to come in their numbers. This is a high profile show and we would love to assure them that families would have a comfortable place to enjoy quality time without any disturbance especially between 2 pm-9 pm. We expect fun lovers to come early to avoid inconveniences at the gate. No one will be allowed to smoke during that period."

Harare-based rising outfit, Talking Guitar is expected to serenade music lovers with their distinct beat that reminds many of the famous musicians of yester-year, The Beatles and Elvis Presley.
