Mic Inity’s Drummer Tatenda Kanjato Is Dead
Mic Inity’s drummer Tatenda ‘Sticks’ Kanjato is dead.
Reports coming through are unclear but at this stage it seems as if the young man may have committed suicide. At the moment, this is speculation, but his death has been confirmed by several sources from within the Mic Inity camp and independents sources.
Sticks had developed into an impressive drummer for Mic Inity’s backing band Hotta Fire. He always retained a friendly demeanour and was generally well-liked.
Dennis Teguru, who leads Mic Inity’s band wrote: is this the redemption we always joked about my yout?just too much to bear.but why now boyz dzangu..
Mic Inity himself said : I am torn. Rest In Peace ma yute Tatenda on the drums. Just the day before yesterday we were in rehearsal. Only Jah know!

Kanjato was previously with the late Sam Mtukudzi’s band AY Band.
The death of Kanjato comes during a dark period of Zimbabwe’s music industry which has lost numerous artists over the last two years, among them Sam Mtukudzi, Owen Chimhare and Martha Badza who played with him in AY Band.
He was 23.
