Fight For The Empire….Oliver Mtukudzi’s Daughters At Loggerheads As They Compete For Father’s Musical Legacy

Oliver Mtukudzi’s daughters at loggerheads
The late Oliver Mtukudzi’s daughters Selmor and Samantha have crossed swords in their bid to take their late father’s musical crown.
Selmor is daughter to Dr Tuku’s first and former wife Melody Murape while Samantha is Daisy’s offspring, the late singer’s second wife.
Selmor and Samantha now lead different sets of the Black Spirits following the demise of the founder on January 23 this year.
Black Spirits is a team of instrumentalists and vocalists previously led by the late national hero, Tuku. In its over 40 years of existence, it employed tens, if not hundreds of artistes.
Having two Black Spirits camps has further strained relations between the two sisters and their respective backers. It has also split the music industry.
