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.

Guvamatanga has a decorated history in promoting local musicians having previously worked with Tocky Vibes and Shinsoman.
