I am Rui Alexandre, a Mozambican now living in South Africa and to be quite honest I do not think Zimbabwe will ever in history produce such an accomplished musician by the name of Leonard Dembo. He is by far the best in Zim & perhaps in SADC. had he lived longer, the whole region would recognize his talents without doubt. Diehards will insist on Macheso and a whole lot of others, but Dembo is the eternal King of Sungura Music.
Whoever disputes, does not simply to acknowledge and appreciate the greatest talent that Zimbabwe had.

for your own information,Rui, when we talk of music maestros, we consider multiple talents. i think you need a serious lecture on that area.Macheso is rocking, can dance, can sing, and is well organised.macheso's music is part of my diet. i can't do without it.

Simon Chimbetu sounded number one above all.

You all know the truth, albeit you may unwittingly deny it.Chimbetu was good, Dembo better and Macheso best....Tongai Moyo is nowhere in the picture. He should be compare with the likes of System Tazvida. I think Zimbabweans are very educated people who I think are aware and acquainted with the word objectivity...meaning to say that no matter how subjective you may be, a thorough objective analysis and scrutiny on the musical amplitudes of Macheso, Dembo and Chimbetu will definitely reveal Cheso Power as the best ever...why ? Because he is a total package. Listen to the rich poetic lyrical content of his songs...more like Shakespearean...watch his gyrations and you would mistaken him for a mechanical or electrical device...whatever may appear to your perception. He has proved beyond any reasonable doubt that he can hold his own in his guitar playing antics and you should be aware by now that he is ranked among the best African best bass guitarist...can play using his chin, his elbow, his buttocks, his hip, his fore head, his knee...can also make the same device laugh, talk, cry, wail, giggle, imitate the sound of a gun, a helicopter or any animal...FACTS are stuborn and they tell us that Dembo has never done this, neither did Chimbetu. FACTS stubborn and they tell us that whilst Dembo and Chimbetu sold GOLD, Macheso also sold GOLD and SIMBARADZO is the highest ever sold album in Zimbabwe...FACTS are stubborn and they also tell us that no Sungura artist has ever won four awards at a single ZIMA award ceremony and we all know who the record holder is...it took Dembo, Chimbetu, Moyo and even Mtukudzi years before they could become an item in the industry after going solo, but it only took his debut album for Macheso to be recognised. The song Baba naAmai from his first album is arguably believed to be his best song. How many years did Dembo to be really an item? I will answer you. After the release of Chitekete. Chimbetu - the Samatenga days. Tongai Moyo - the Samanyemba days.Mtukudzi- the Tuku Music days. Macheso is an all rounder and has powerful vocal commands. He can not be equated with these two great artists who passed on. I attended one Macheso, Tuku and Suluman Chimbetu's show and I Saw Macheso playing the Drums, Murume-lead guitar, Murondatsimba - Lead guitar. What I am trying to let you know is that Macheso can play any instrument you may think of.....not Demobo could do that, neither Dr Mukanya, Tuku, Chimbetu is multi-gifted and multi-talented as Macheso.Read the facts and acquaint yourself with sungura music onions.HAUMBORASIKE.PERIOD.

This Kelvin Mbiza must be a dead person You cant compare the dead and the living ones. He is so stupid that he should be wearing Berry bottom pants these days. The staff he is comparing is far different and I wish he must do it with the Ghosts. This is not for dead people ass. Ediot Mbiza

All these artists are the best in their own style of music. But Macheso can even play the guiter using any part of the boby but the taste of it never changing. He has changed the view of many people around Museve music.... if do not know this today then rest in peace!

Macheso is okay, if you like that kind of music.

As for me I prefer Sepultura, Slayer, Pantera etc.
