Womanising Peter Moyo was Beverly Sibanda's boyfriend?


SINCE Peter Moyo launched his musical career a couple of years ago, the young Utakataka Express front- man is always making headlines in newspapers for a number of issues from being a womaniser, arrogance and double-standards in beliefs.

And Zuze is quite amazed at the young musician's lifestyle.

Moyo, the son of the late sungura maestro Tongai, took over the Kwekwe-based outfit in 2011 after the death of the Naye hit maker and since then, he has courted controversy in the media for allegedly being too cosy with several women including former Miss Matofotofo, Monica Chikasha a staunch fan of Utakataka Express band.

Apart from his closeness to Chikasha aka Mama Sele, Young Igwe as Moyo is popularly known in the showbiz, has also reportedly dated raunchy dancer Beverly Sibanda and Botswana diva Slizer real name Naledi Kaisara among others.

Zuze remembers Bev confirming to the Weekend Post in 2012 that she and Moyo were an item though the Mushonga Mukuru star refuted the claims.

"It's only that Peter is still young hence he is shy to talk openly about his love life but the truth is that we are going out," she said then.

In his defence Moyo said: "How can I be in love with Bev in all earnest?"

Zuze was taken aback by published photos of Moyo kissing Slizer which were in the media.

The two artistes have shared the stage in a number of concerts in the country including last year's edition of  theTongai Moyo commemoration gala held in Kwekwe, Chinhoyi and Harare.

Slizer went on to feature Young Igwe on her new album Bazooka.

While launching his debut album Mushonga Mukuru in the capital last year, Moyo shocked Zuze when he admitted that he is a womaniser and that he needed assistance in the form of spiritual deliverance.

He revealed this after he was advised to shun the habit of womanising by Music Patron, minister Webster Shamu who was the guest of honour at the event (in absentia).

"I would like to put this in vernacular Peter mwanangu usiye tsika yekunyenga-nyenga nokuti vakadzi hauvapedzi. Vasiye vakupururudzire pastage zvebasa asi usavada zvepabonde nokuti ukadaro nhaka yababa vako Tongai inozoshaya anoendesa mberi (Peter desist from proposing to women, we still need you to carry forward your father Tongai's musical legacy)," said Minister Walter Mzembi who read Minister Shamu's speech then.

In his response, Moyo took Zuze by surprise when he said he needed the help of genuine prophets to deliver him from his womanising behaviour.

"I am very grateful for your advice and I think this womanising problem can only be solved by real prophets – those who are able to cleanse me," he said.
