“It was pertinent for me to sing for him on his funeral but I couldn’t find the strength.
“I am still mourning my Sekuru and I don’t even know if I am going to stop but I feel obliged and I feel I owe him at least a song in his honour,” she said.
“Music spoke to him just like it does to me in a way I can never understand and I am confident he will hear this one with mixed feelings pain and joy at the same time.
“When I messaged him that i had a show in Beitbridge he was on his hospital bed but the zeal in his response and the motivation will leave in me for the remaining years on this earth.
“I loved my Sekuru he was my shoulder and my listening ear.”
