Minister of Youth, Sports, Arts and Recreation, Kirsty Coventry has called on the nation to pay tribute to the late music icon Oliver “Tuku” Mtukudzi on Friday by wearing black or African attire.


The minister said that those who absolutely must wear formal clothing should do so without a tie. As part of a statement confirming that Mtukudzi had been conferred with National Hero Status, Coventry said,

… As of tomorrow Friday, the 26th of January, 2019, an appeal is being made to the womenfolk, who constitute a sizeable percentage of Tuku’s fan base to put on black attire including headdress in what is being dubbed “TUKU DHUKU”. Males are being encouraged to put on African shirts and head-dress, and should they choose formal attire it should be without a necktie.
