THE revolutionary musical group Light Gun Machine popularly known as LMG choir has reportedly spilt after spending more than three decades together.
Speaking to B-Metro Mpo Sibanda the leader of the splinter group Amaqhawe said they spilt from their mother group LMG which was led by Give Nhare after he relocated to Gwanda and formed his own youthful group in the same name.
Sibanda said when they were invited to perform at national functions such as galas, he would bring his youthful group despite the fact that his members were not revolutionaries.
a�?Nhare relocated to Gwanda and formed his own youthful LMG choir and that did not go down well with some members. They felt that it compromised the main reason of forming the group,a�? said Sibanda.
Sibanda said they broke up because Nhare composed new songs which he expected those based in Bulawayo to sing even though they were not familiar with the songs.
a�?We were supposed to master the songs within a short space of time and master the dance routines. That led to misunderstandings which resulted in the split,a�? he said.
He however, said although they spilt with Nhare they were still maintaining friendly relations with him.
Meanwhile, Sibanda said his group has produced songs such as Nanzi Inkokheli zeZimbabwe, Superpower, Ilizwe Lethu and Happy Birthday Gushungo.
Efforts to get a comment from Nhare were fruitless as his mobile phone was not reachable.
