Last night I received the news that Takura and his management had parted ways... Such a sudden turn of events was strange since we were all expecting the Mungandidii video, which according to the statement below has been shelved.
I am sure that there is more to the split that what we are being lead to believe. Where lines blurred? Was behind-closed-doors misconduct to blame? Was the money not adding up? Only time will tell as all will be revealed like the Shona proverb says, "Rinemanyanga raputirwe".
Below is the statement that yours truly received concerning the split.
KOSHA Management and Takura have today parted company by mutual consent. KOSHA partners thank Takura for his music and his trust in their charge to manage his business interests from mid 2016. The partnership saw KOSHA launching, and positioning TAKURA as a pioneering brand in the evolving Zimbabwean music industry. TAKURA notably amassed the fastest digital growth numbers on Instagram and VEVO, highlighting the success of KOSHAs digital centric strategy; which seeks to increase a brand's value, relevance, and influence on both the local and international stage. The release of his Zim iTunes number 1 debut EP titled STRIPPED, including 3 number 1 hits on Zim iTunes, 7 award wins, and the history-making Stripped Varsity Tour to name a few career highs, made this tag team the most successful in regards to new brands in Zimbabwean music today. In the best interests of both parties, KOSHA and Takura have agreed to pursue parallel paths in the upcoming season; believing more success to ensue. Both parties will remain supportive and significant to each other's career growth. All pending work under the partnership has been called off to allow for new direction and focus. Major apologies for the inconvenience this will cause. KOSHA is here and now knuckling down on extending its vision on furthering the Zimbabwean cultural agenda- ensuring our talented fresh hallmarks reach their potential. KOSHA and its partners anticipate that you remain an invested and key partner in its work as we continue with our trail blazing efforts and further development. Tannia Founder & MD KOSHA Management
Where Takura will go from here remains to be seen and exactly how much KOSHA contributed to his success.
