For Dr Thomas Mapfumo and Bryn Taurai Mteki aka Sekurutau meeting on home soil was never imaginable until this week when the two legendary musicians came face to face on a dream date as they reminisced about the good old days back in America and Zimbabwe.

The two who kept in touch although miles apart due to their hectic schedules met on a dream date in Harare for the first time in the last 14 years since Dr Mapfumo left the country.

"We relived moments in the US as we talked about life in general and how at one time I landed in trouble with one of business partners in Oregon where Mukanya resides before I moved to Los Angeles California.

"My Business partner had declared a fake bankruptcy report and wanted to run away with my sculpture consignment worth millions of dollars and Mukanya came to my rescue by facilitating His Lawyer to represent me while I was away on tour of Germany.

"But I was pleased that Mukanya got all my sculptures back. That's how tight our relationship is and it goes way back. I also took opportunity to present him with our BrynBrands products such as still water, Dovi and Snacks among others as well as briefed him about The Saratoga story that i took over.

"We also held private discussions and also touched on piracy and identity crisis for musicians," Sekurutau said.
