ongai Moyo Jnr explains the meaning of new song, fans say he was directing to brother Peter. Tongai Jnr, who revealed that he is not in good books with his brother Peter, has explained about the song Cain and Abel which he said is also receiving great response. However, Peter Moyo is on record saying he does not have bad blood with his younger brother saying he would not beg him for dialogue.
As the rift between the two sons of the late Sungura maestro – Tongai Moyo – continues to widen, Tongai Obert Moyo Junior is on high with his recent track titled Cain and Abel, a biblical story where Cain killed Abel over jealousy.
In a recent interview, Tongai Jnr said he was focusing on his career. “The track Cain and Abel is receiving a massive response from the fans, promoters well-wishers and father figures. “I’m happy with the response because it’s overwhelming.
“The song is based on a Bible story in Genesis about two brothers, one is loving and caring towards his brother and the other one turns a blind eye on the love and chooses jealousy and greed over love,” said Tongai Jnr.
“In the song l am trying to preach love between the elder brother and the younger brother. These issues are happening in our present days. “I am giving a heads up to Abel, always watch out for Cain his mission is to destroy you, it may not be a brother, a friend or close relative but always be on the alert.
“With our current situation with my brother, many would think it’s a personal agenda. The element is there but l can’t tell people what to think of the song, if it pleases you to visualise the song in that sense then it’s okay.
“That version is another factor contributing to the booming of the song, l think it’s a good theory,” he added. The Kwekwe based 22-year-old said his last conversation with his brother, Peter, was sour and there is no good communication at the moment.
Tongai Jnr also said they view music differently, hence they failed to reach a consensus. “Our relationship business-wise is not that rosy as we both have different opinions towards music and each other. “To be honest, we last spoke some time ago and the conversation was not friendly up to now,” he told H-Metro.
Tongai Jnr said he wants to export sungura music internationally. “I want to bring sungura back to its old days where it used to dominate. That is my first task and then take the genre to international standards.Obert Tongai (Jnr) Moyo
“That is where I am headed,” he said. Tongai Jnr started his musical journey in 2016 with his first track Dhewa Wedu featuring Brian Samaita. This year he did a collaboration with Ronnie Mudhindo on a track titled Dzinza. And his recent track Cain and Abel making waves in music circles.
