Sweden-based multi-talented artiste Luckson “ManLuckerz” Chikutu (pictured above) says he is going to up his game in marketing Zimbabwean culture in the diaspora through many channels, among them music.
Chikutu, whose debut book Flashback Identity published in the Scandanavian country is doing well on the market, says it is the duty of diasporans to market their own culture, hence the need to do more on the arts platform.
“I have big dreams this year. I want to try to do more in spreading my own culture to more people in Europe. The world should know the Zimbabwean culture at an advanced level, hence I would like to fulfill one of my dreams through Zimbabwean music,” he said.
The artiste has been doing a variety of activities in Sweden among them cultural workshops, storytelling and music performances among other artistic discplines.
He has been performing at high-profile arts festivals where he tells the Zimbabwean story through music, a move that has earned him the tag Cultural Ambassador.
He says he is also dreaming of reviving the once popular Zimfebi arts extravaganza.
“The Zimfebi Music 2020 is already in motion. I have started giving advice on social media platforms to Zimbabweans who have their own dreams. I am available to those who want to work with us so that we achieve our goals,” he said.
Zimfebi is a cultural bira that saw local musicians travelling to Sweden for an exchange programme.
