Alick Macheso’s publicist has moved in to explain whether the Sungura guru has joined the likes of Nicholas Zakaria, Zacharia Zakaria and Ronnie Mudindo who were once haulage truck drivers.
A picture of Macheso seemingly driving a haulage truck triggered social media debate over the weekend.
Some even thought Macheso had taken up new ventures to keep his band intact as Covid-19 lockdown measures suspended live shows, which are the major source of income.
However, it has since emerged that he posed for a photo while having a feel of a parked tanker.
His publicist, Tich Makahamadze said:
“As you know, he can interact with anyone at any level so he was just having fun. We just came across it and we started interacting.
“I actually took that picture about three or four days ago and we were just having fun. We even have a video at the same scene while mdhara was assuring his fans that live shows will resume as a soon as life returns to normalcy,” said Makahamadze.
Over the years, fellow musicians comprising Nicholas Zakaria, Zacharia Zakaria and Ronnie Mudindo once doubled as haulage truck drivers.
