Bulawayo Chibuku Road to Fame winners investigated




The National Arts Council of Zimbabwe (NACZ) has opened investigations on Bulawayo provincial winners of the Chibuku Road to Fame (CRTF), Kupenya Stars.

The groups crime is for singing songs from their debut album.

This is in violation of one of the rules of the competition.

“Only groups, individuals that have not recorded before are eligible to qualify to partake in the Chibuku Road to Fame competition,” reads the rule.

NACZ Bulawayo Provincial Arts manager, Charity Nyathi, confirmed that Kupenya Stars was being investigated.



“The group has not been disqualified as the Bulawayo provincial winners as investigations are still underway,” said Nyathi.

The group’s manager, Kudzai Chikomo, said they are waiting their fate.

“I’m not sure what’s really going on, but I’m waiting for a letter from NACZ about the issue. The local office just briefed me and told me their Harare office would communicate with me,” said Chikomo.

In 2014, a Bulawayo group, Sounds of Universe, was disqualified from the same competition after they took to social media to air their grievances
