The entertainment fraternity is condoling with the family of veteran pop icon Oliver Mtukudzi whose death was confirmed on Wednesday afternoon.

According to Mtukudzi's record label, Gallo Records, no details are available at the moment.

Speaking to The Times Live a year ago, Mtukudzi stated how happy he was to release his 67th album.

"My 67th album is meant to share a message of introspecting and I'm hoping people learn a thing or two from it. It's an album I wrote last year after I realised that the world keeps getting tangled up in 'unnecessary' problems,” he told The Times Live. 

Mtukudzi born in 1952 was a Zimbabwean musician, businessman, philanthropist, human rights activist and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador for the Southern Africa Region.

Tuku was considered to have been Zimbabwe's most renowned and internationally recognised cultural icon of all time.

Tributes to the fallen giant have flooded social media.

I remember how excited I was when I first found out that Zimbabwean music legend, Oliver Mtukudzi ???????????? was on Tiny Desk Concerts ( by @NPR music) - which is one of my fav music channel.
