The world is still coming to terms with Oliver Mtukudzi's passing. As sad as that news turned out to be, the legendary singer left us with many memories. 

Reflecting on the late Zimbabwean singer, Thandiswa Mazwai decided to take to Twitter to remind people what Tuku was all about – especially when it came to live performances. 

While artists of this generation are renowned for demanding expensive riders, Tuku was a different kind of musician, according to King Tha. She began by expressing her deep shock the moment she found out he had passed on: 

When it came to backstage requests, Thandiswa revealed that Oliver was a simple musician – which is ironic considering how talented he was.

Do you think that many of today’s artists will take heed of this warning?
