On the 24th of April 2025 I was graced to meet the person behind the ancient tales brought to life through the eyes of the Muchwezi. On meeting him, what first came to sight was his physic. Clad in a black suit and Gucci oxfords, he greeted me in gentle, hushed tones that reminded me of the god father. Shivers ran through me as with a single wave of his hand, a massive icecream latte with a cherry on top was delivered to my side. That look in his eye reminded me of the days my father used to force me to have dinner during my naughtier days as a child.
Victor Mugabe has over the past 5 years grown a following due to his works especially featuring in films like the spirit man, The Muchwezi tales and the novel entitled legends. Initially following the story of Kintu and Nambi at the start, the Muchwezi went on to explore all other tales from each corner of the country and now promises to venture further beyond our boundaries to Kenya and Rwanda.
