Baba Harare lawsuit saga: promoter speaks out
THE saga pitting Jiti musician Baba Harare and a United Kingdom-based music distribution company Jacaranda and former promoter Charles Guvamatanga has taken a new twist, Zim Morning Post can report.
Baba Harare is claiming nearly £45 000 in royalties and his former promoter Charles Guvamatanga has vehemently disputed the claims and told this publication that the claims were baseless.
Guvamatanga further revealed that he has not been served with any court papers as reported by some sections of the media.
“I’m not aware of any lawsuit and I have checked with the courts and no such papers were filed against me. We do not owe him anything,” he said.
He further revealed that the false story was planted by Baba Harare’s new manager and was a marketing gimmick to promote his next album.
Born Braveman Chizvino, Baba Harare claimed that he had instructed his lawyer Arshiel Mugiya to issue summons demanding that Jacaranda Media Group, Guvamatanga and Mangwiro pay him £17 500 in royalties for music sold, £25 000 for breach of contract and order in cancellation for distribution of his music.
Guvamatanga has a decorated history in promoting local musicians having previously worked with Tocky Vibes and Shinsoman.
