Business people and local musicians have hailed music superstar, Oliver Mtukudzi for coming up with a shoe label known as ‘Hai-kobo’ and for being a leading artist in the music entrepreneurship.
Mtukudzi launched his music label ‘Hai-kobo,’ cementing his 1970s and 1980s hits, which had the same signature.
The shoe label concept was designed and developed by Mtukudzi over a five-year period.
Mtukudzi said the idea of coming up with the label was mooted together with a local footwear company called Tagged Green Holdings Internationals derived from the signature of his lyrics in songs such as ‘Chimusoro’ and ‘Mbombera’.
This is the first in Zimbabwe for a musician to venture into a footwear business deal at the same time cementing his music label.
