Zimbabwean music legend Oliver Mtukudzi planned to record a song featuring daughter Selmor as well as other family members.

However, the Grim Reaper struck on 23 January 2019 and robbed the world of another Tuku offering.

In an emotional Facebook post on Monday the late musician’s daughter Selmor gave the world an insight into Tuku’s thoughts just four days before he died.

“Dad, it will be a whole year on the 23rd of January and yet my heart still skips a beat when I hear your music played. Hana yangu inorova (my heart beats faster) when they refer to you as “the late”.

“I miss you so much. Even though I never saw you every day but just knowing that you are there meant worlds to me. Now you are gone. For good. It breaks my heart. People may have not understood the relatioship (sic)we had you and I, and I know how in the last days you wanted so much to let everybody know how much we cared for each other through a song (Coz that’s how we communicate) but I guess God didn’t care what people thought. He took you before we could do it. It’s a year now but still feels like yesterday. I love you so much dad. Rest in peace,” said Selmor.

Selmor paid tribute to fans “who supported Dr Oliver Tuku Mtukudzi till the end and the amazing support given to me thereafter.”
