Afro-Jazz musician Selmor Mtukudzi has a huge endorsement package from leading car rental Impala, after she was gifted a Range Rover vehicle.
Selmor, whose late father national hero Oliver Mtukudzi was a brand ambassador for Impala Car Rental, looks like she is following in the big man’s footsteps as she has been accorded the same role by the corporate sector.
On the stage, she is also not doing badly as the overwhelming sympathy following Tuku’s death, coupled with the equally overwhelming energy and talent in Selmor, has seen her shows remain fully subscribed.
There were fears Mtukudzi’s death would ignite a heated and draining battle between Selmor and Tuku’s widow Daisy over the legend’s legacy, but it would appear that Selmor and her step mom have done well to handle matters aware from the public glare so far.
Local tabloid H-Metro reports that Selmor will now be driven by Impala and will take ownership of the Range Rover.
“Chances are she is going to take over from her father as an impala ambassador, but I’m not yet certain of the title she shall carry,” a source told H-Metro.
The Black Spirits band is still under Daisy and Selmor has had to do with former friends of her father’s who once worked for the band.
Selmor established herself as a force to be reckoned with when she dazzled fans at Andy Miller in Harare at a show in honour of Oliver Mtukudzi.
Dondo was part of the show and immediately endorsed Selmor as the heir to Tuku’s throne, before giving her a car.
Impala has since replaced the smaller car with this grander Range Rover to seal their approval of the songstress. Dondo was not available for comment by the time of going to print
