Macheso moves from Chitungwiza to his new house in Waterfalls

Erstwhile sworn "ghetto boy" Alick Macheso has finally moved from Chitungwiza to his new house in Waterfalls, the NewDay reported.

The sungura musician, who previously indicated he enjoyed living in high-density suburbs because he is a man of the people, last month decided to vacate his high density Unit A Extension house for his new medium-density establishment in the Uplands.

Macheso announced two years ago that he would move out of the place of his heart, but prolonged his relocation until family pressure forced him to do so.

"The Chitungwiza house had become too squashed," said Macheso.

"At least with this new house my huge family can fit well. As you can see the house is still under construction. The paint is at undercoat. The single storey part still needs to be constructed and the security wall needs touch-ups."

Macheso's closest neighbour is Energy and Power Development deputy minister and Harare South MP (Zanu PF) Hubert Nyanhongo.

The new house currently has nine rooms, but will have 13 after its completion, while the Chitungwiza house has seven rooms.

The house that he has vacated in Chitungwiza has now been left in custody of his uncle and engineer, while another house in the area is occupied by tenants. Although Macheso could not say if both his wives would stay in the new family home, Nyadzisai was seen entering the house, while Tafadzwa is believed to be living in Eastlea.
Macheso could not give these reporters an opportunity for an inside view of the house.

Macheso was blasted on numerous occasions by his fans who felt that his status could no longer match the lifestyle that Chitungwiza bestowed on him.

The sungura maestro urged other musicians to be innovative.

"This music we are pursuing now will come to an end one day and what we must do is to invest in properties," he said.

"I managed to build two houses in Chitungwiza, another one in Dema and I am about to start building another one in Goromonzi, all because of a clear vision.

"The money we get from live shows must be used to invest for the improvement of our families and their future, so my fellow artists must invest. Ini ndaingoti ndikawana mari ndotenga pasi pangu kusvika ndavaka (I used the money I got to buy stands)," he said.

He said even in their rural homes, artists must build houses for their parents and their families.




"I also built my parents a homestead in Musana and I am proud to say if I decide to go and stay at my rural home I can do so even right now without having to carry anything from here.

"I actually have not done enough, but I have tried to do the right thing with the little that I have made."
