Oliver Mtukudzi is celebrating his 65th birthday at a special dinner party in London that will also honour his illustrious career that spans four decades. 

The star-studded dinner will be held at the Marriott Hotel in Waltham Abbey, London on April 22. Flying under the banner name Tuku@65dinner, the event is being organised by Black Tie Management.

The Tribute Dinner will celebrate the rich and cultural music career of the country’s most recognised and decorated artiste as well as his birthday.

“We are thrilled, and also very honoured to be hosting this special dinner for our very own music icon, legendary artiste and well respected man whose talent, self-effacement and outstanding achievements deserve to be celebrated,” said Zenzo Ncube, one of the organising members of Black-Tie Management.

Tuku’s manager Sam Mataure said Dr Mtukudzi is humbled and delighted to be honoured in this very special way.
“Samanyanga’s (Tuku’s totem) journey in music has been a long, diverse and successful one. It has reached people from the most isolated rural growth points of Zimbabwe all the way to the diaspora communities overseas. We are grateful and all looking forward to travelling to London to celebrate a great legend among our friends and fans at the dinner,” Mataure added.
