Following the announcement of legendary Zimbabwean musician Dr. Oliver Mtukudzi’s passing on the 23rd of January, a #Dhuku4Tuku movement was initiated and shared on social media. The movement saw women wear a dhuku (head wrap) paired with black outfits to pay homage to Oliver Mtukudzi’s legacy, notably his role in creating awareness around the plight of widows through his groundbreaking hit ‘Neria’
Rest in Power Oliver Mtukudzi, thank you for sharing your gift with us.
We put together a collage of women who took part in the movement and some captions of how the late musician touched their lives.
“Anyone who has experienced a profound loss should be allowed to express his or her grief. In our case today as Zimbabweans, we mourn the death of an iconic hero in the music industry, Oliver Mtukudzi. It is not easy to resolve the intense emotions and the profound life changes that are associated with the demise of such a talent. Zimbabwe has lost a profound artist, a gap that will be hard to fill. Rest In Peace” Charity Maruva, Counsellor
