ALICK Macheso believes some upcoming musicians are behind a fake album that is being sold by pirates to unsuspecting fans.
The album, titled Tiyamurei with Macheso’s image, has flooded the market but it is not the sungura legend who sang or produced the album.
The fake album has since irked Macheso and his team who are still in the studio.
Macheso’s publicist Tich Makahamadze said the CD does not even have their music.
“There is no Macheso’s music on the CD. It’s actually someone’s music. The people who are behind that just took Macheso’s picture and thought of a name.
“There is a clip of Macheso in studio singing a song with lyrics including Tiyamurei and they capitalised on that,” said Makahamadze.
“It’s those upcoming artistes who want to sell their music, so they put their music on Macheso’s face and obviously people will buy assuming it’s the man himself. The idea is to get people listen to their music,” he said.
