ZlMURA board member exposes Albert Nyathi
Zimbabwe Music Rights Association (ZIMURA) board member Phillip Chipfumbu and other board members exposed how their chairman Albert Nyathi has been abusing his office by misusing funds that should benefit artists in Zimbabwe.
Speaking during a press conference that was held in Harare, yesterday Chipfumbu said, “On March 16, Nyathi, First Farai, Alexio Gwenzi and some board members planned a private journey and went on to spend lavishly in hotels using funds that belong to artists.
We only saw a report from Nyathi that they were on their way back from site viewing of our stand”.
Chipfumbu said, “l wrote a letter to Nyathi seeking clarity why he went on against our memorandum and this sparked arguments and confusion between board members”.
He further said ZIMURA is captured and a lot of scandals are happening within the board.
Contacted for comment Nyathi only required more time to revert to this publication, he failed to revert within the time of publication.

In a recent Facebook post, Yala Nation boss Seh Calaz spoke out about the state of Zimbabwean dancehall, stating that while it is not dead, it has been abandoned by some of its most prominent artists. According to Calaz, the dancehall culture in Zimbabwe has been strained by music albums, causing many musicians to abandon the genre in favor of more popular ones.
Calaz went on to say that many Zimbabwean artists only sing dancehall music to gain relevance and once they become famous, they switch to other genres: “Maonero angu ndoona kunge vanhu vanoimba zimdancehall kuti vasimbe and vakangoita mbiri nemazita vakutoti hatichaita izvozvo takurova dzimwe ,cynt mention names tovaziva, The pioneers vazhinji vakachinja vakaenda ku Jiti, Afro, Amapiano, hiphop , jazz,sungura, Rhumba vachitevera ma trends” he wrote.Learn More
