CHINHOYI – CHEGUTU is setting the new tone in the music industry and is raising multi-
talented artists who are taking the Drill and Afro genres to a new level.
Brendon Takudzwa Machomesa is a versatile artist professionally known as Macho, who is
deeply into Dancehall, Afro-pop-drill fusion.
Macho has over 40 tracks, an album titled Salaam Vol.1 and has featured on other productions by
various musicians.
He has collaborated with many prominent artists including the fire emoji hit maker and 2022
award winner Leo Maggoz on Amen and featured on the fire emoji dancehall remix with Enzo
Ishall, Delroy, Jah Master and Poptain.
He also did the track Grace on Brian Jack’s E.P called Unicorn among other major
collaborations.
His latest song, titled Mari, features Leo Maggoz and has more collaborations on the cards.
“My musical journey began in 2011, but I was exposed to professional music producers in 2018
when I recorded my first single track.

“My music is inspired by our daily lives, things that no one can express but can vibe to in the
form of music.”
Fans should watch out for his new release as he is currently working on a four-track Extended
play (EP), titled Everyday Situation.
Macho believes that the root cause of the young generation turning to drugs is that they lack
counselling from those they look up to.
“I worry that as time moves on, our elders will notice but it will be too late by then. This issue
needs be corrected before the roots dive deep in the ghetto. So, I’m dedicating this EP to the
youths.”
His dream is that in five years, he will be able to create opportunities that can take Chegutu and
Africa to another level.
Climbing the music ladder, he says, was hell in a cell, but through persistence and endurance it is
finally paying off.
“It was never easy because I was trying to introduce a new sound whilst Zimbabwe already had
its trade mark like commercial Dancehall, for example. It’s only a few artists who are in genres
like Afro, Afro-dancehall, who are able to get recognition.”
People now understand his work, the messages in his songs and there is a positive response as
followers are amassing and he is grateful for it.
“I want to plead with the audience to follow my sites on YouTube, Apple music, deezer, iTunes
and other platforms.”
Born on March 24, 2000, he comes from a family of five and is the third child born to Gerald
Machomesa and Constance Vambe.
