DOORS SHUT FOR SHIGA SHIGA
Sungura chanter Shiga Shiga, real name Gift Kathulika’s prospects of re-joining Peter Moyo led Utakataka Express are slim.
Shiga unceremoniously left the group citing monetary challenges but he is certainly missing home if his appearance at Peter’s Sunday show at Xtra Mile are anything to go by.
He went on stage for short stint reminding many of his chanting abilities leaving many convinced that he could be the missing piece of the puzzle.
Peter’s group is made of veterans, among them bass guitarist Spencer Khumulani and Evidence Tarabuka (Baba Gari), Yamathele and Shiga was part of them, dating back from the days of the late Tongai Moyo.
Speculation was rife that he could be making a return to Utakataka Express but the group leader, Peter poured cold water on them.
“At the moment there is no opening. There is someone doing that role and all the fans are loving it. When he left he said there was no money and nothing has changed since then meaning even if he is to return he will complain about that.
“He has jumped ship before and we took him back but as it stands there is no opening. Like I have said before, no one is bigger than Utakataka, Utakataka ndiwo ma fans edu. I’m not even bigger than Utakataka,” he said.
When Shiga left, Yamathele took over the chanting role and it has been business as usual and despite not having the Shiga’s abilities he has executed his role well.
This is the third time that Shiga has deserted Peter’s camp. He has been pardoned twice and if by any chances he is forgiven this will be the third time.
He at one point he joined Energy Mutodi but that was not successful. He went on to start his ensemble but again it did not reach far before returning to Utakataka.
This maybe a case of his chanting only being suitable while at Peter’s and not anywhere else.
