Superstar musician Dr. Oliver Mtukudzi has died. He passed away in Harare on Wednesday afternoon.

Writing his condolence message, former minister of Education, Sports, Arts and Culture David Coltart said, "Rest in peace Oliver Mtukudzi. If anyone ever made me proud to be Zimbabwean it was you. Thank you for making us happy for so long, especially during the darkest days."

"We've lost an icon and my heartfelt condolences to Daisy and family." Said Norton MP Temba Mliswa. "I'm writing to the President to apply for National Hero status for his national contribution to the music, arts and culture industry."
