Oliver Mtukudzi was about to release his 67th studio album that he was very eager to release
“My 67th album is meant to share a message of introspecting and I’m hoping people learn a thing or two from it. It’s an album I wrote last year after I realized that the world keeps getting tangled up in ‘unnecessary’ problems.
“All because we are focused on competing and being better than the next person. In so doing we keep stepping on each other’s toes but that is not how God created us. God meant for us to compliment each other, that’s why he didn’t duplicate talent,” he said at the interview.
Oliver Mtukudzi’s music has touched so many people’s lives in so many ways and thus his legend will forever be there now that he has gone to dance with the angels.
