Tedious Matsito is a Zimbabwean musician and the front man for Sungura outfit Ngwenya Brothers.

Background

Matsito had brothers Albert, Jabulani, Michael and Edward who are all late. He is married to Patience Matsito and together they have six children.[1]

Career

Tedious started a band with his brothers Albert, Jabulani, Michael and Edward in 1985 when they relocated to Glenara Estate in Mazowe to pursue their dream. Glenara Estate would be their launch pad. For five years, the brothers practised quietly until they were brave enough to face the public.

In 1990 they released their first seven-single album which carried the songs ‘Sekuru Vatenga Mota’ and ‘Zuva Guru’. Two years later they released their hit album "Nyaradzo" which catapulted to instant fame. The name Ngwenya Brothers was not an origination of the outfit, but was given to the group by their fans. The brothers recorded and released seven albums that include Nyaradzo, Chakanaka Chakanaka, Manyemwe Emhuru, Kugara Nekugara, Muzita rashe and Tumirai Shoko.

Matsito would go on to release 14 albums without his late brothers. [2]
