Question: I would like to write a book project about Oliver Mtukudzi. The desire to carry out this project came through listening to his great music and I thought that documentation of such a treasure was a must, considering his immense contribution to the Zimbabwean music as well marketing it to the international arena. Another thing which desturbed me greatly was that I felt we've not given him the honour he deserves, because since he passed away we've never held any single commemoration in his honor and legacy. It seems like we as Zimbabweans we've gotten him. And may main trust for parteking in this great book project is my concern for posterity of his legacy to future generations, they must keep remembering him in years and decades to come and if we don't document his history I'm convinced future generations will never remember him because they don't know him. So question is what do I need to do to make this great book project a success and what are the crucial areas that I should focus on to make it a master piece and worthy reading.
