Tuku's Public Lecture at C.U.T

Oliver Mtukudzi is going to give a public lecture at the Chinhoyi University of Technology on March 5 when he presents a paper on Music Business & the Arts as Technology . Shepherd Mutamba, Public Relations officer at Tuku Music, confirmed the event and went on to acknowledge that Tuku Music and Pakare Paye Arts Centre, the academy founded by Tuku in 2003, views the lecture as a special way of distinguishing Tuku as a venerable personality.

He said it also honoured his many untold stories of remarkable fortitude in the face of adversity. "Speaking at that level is an honour, recognition and a testament to Tuku’s connection to daily life encounters, to showbiz as a huge enterprise and to the adaptation of technology by the arts," he said.

At the lecture Tuku will express his artistry and business know-how, drawing from a lifetime of experiences and a career spanning over 35 years of making music, film and developing young talent alongside his humanitarian work. Just last year Tuku scored two milestone achievements for his work both as an artist and humanitarian. He received an honorary M.Sc (Fine Arts) degree from the Women’s University in Africa and was named Cultural Ambassador for Project Concern International at a ceremony in San Diego in the United States.

On the same day of his lecture Tuku will visit diabetic patients at Chinhoyi Provincial Hospital. Tuku himself is diabetic and has indicated his desire to help raise public awareness on the condition that is a huge silent killer worldwide. Tuku will also hand out leaflets and other literature on diabetes during a walkabout in the centre of Chinhoyi. He will also visit a jazz spot located on a farm at Shankuru, on the outskirts of Chinhoyi, to familiarize himself with the developments in the arts in the small agricultural town. But the evening is the night that Chinhoyi fans of Tuku’s have been waiting for. After the lecture and the visits, Tuku and The Black Spirits are setting Chinhoyi on fire with a long awaited performance in the town - at the university campus.
