Alick Macheso says he has cancelled shows scheduled for the weekend as he mourns Oliver Mtukudzi. He said :"We expected to start our 2019 calendar with three shows this weekend but with this sad news we can't carry on, we can't."

He said :"SaManyanga vakashaya mukana...asi vaida kurarama, vakatorwa nenguva iweee!
Sam Mutukudzi akashaya mukana...asi aida kurarama, akatorwa nenguva iwee! Tinoziva hakusi kugona kwedu, kuraramawo....nenyasha dzedenga...Tabaiwa panodzimba moyo.

Mudhara Tuku was not just another artiste, he was a torchbearer and the go to guy for all of us in the music industry. A celebrated Zimbabwean music ambassador and composer of note, he will always be cherished for his artistry and attention to detail in every performance; even after his departure. He was an inspiration and he will always be one. The industry is a lot poorer with his going. We will continue with the good work mudhara, fambai nerugare. We are saddened by the fact that matungamira murimizve makatikurira zhira. Our condolences to Amai Mutukudzi and the entire Mutukudzi family. We are in this together and may God comfort your family."
