SOUTH Africa-based Sungura musician, Clever “Mapower” Maposa, has d!ed — three days after the release of his six-track album Ane Bhora Ndiye Anomakwa.
Maposa, who hailed from Chipinge, reportedly suffered chest pains.
He was known for his generosity towards other artistes, and left behind a band, Sungura Superbeat.
The singer’s brother, Francis, confirmed that Maposa had bigger plans for the album, but died before he could put them into action.
“We just released the album a few days ago and a week before the album we had advertised the launch for November 4.
“But, after that my brother got sick and he was admitted. I went on to do the launch with his blessings. He was later discharged and came home.
“On Sunday, in the afternoon around 2pm, he d*ed.
“We will furnish you with more information as we go,” said Francis.
The songs from his album are Forogonya, Hutsinye, Anebhora Ndiye Anomakwa, Kuroorwa, Kubhadharwa Kumberi and Mapurisa. H Metro
