Sam Mtukudzi Dies: A Life Well Lived?
Sam Mtukudzi, the son of highly accomplished African musician, Oliver Mtukudzi, has died in a tragic car crash early hours of this morning. He was just 21. His parents who are in South Africa are due to arrive sometime this morning to begin funeral arrangements.
It’s always a terrible shock when a young person, especially one so talented passes away. We think of the terrible waste – all that he was yet to do, never will be done. Songs never sung, dances never danced.
In Sam Mtukudzi’s case, we think also of all he had already accomplished. The smiles and laughter he inspired. The example of his life to young and old.
But whatever the lesson of his life, there is a strong one also in his passing… Live Your Life Today. Don’t procrastinate your happiness. When you delay your dreams, you have less time to enjoy them.
So mend that broken relationship, start that business, try that idea, pray that prayer. Not because of fear of death, but out of respect for time.
Whether you live your dreams for 5 years or 50, it always seems short at the end. Best get going, don’t you think? A life well lived is a life that is actually lived. Aren’t you tired simply existing? Your creator, your loved ones and the whole world, we’re all waiting to see what’s inside you, to hear the music in you.

I’m really shaken. Its so sad. He was so young and we can ask WHY, but the truth is when God says Yes who can say NO. Very sad loss indeed of a talented young man. Nedzoyi muri yekwaMtukudzi. NO words can comfort you but may the Lord God Almighty comfort you…
TO ALL – Pa Sam patopera zvasarira isu vapenyu kuti tigadzirise hupenyu hwedu naMwari. lets live each day like its our last day on earth…for we know not the day nor hour. When the Lord comes…Will you be ready??? If you die today…will you be saved or lost… Take this opportunity to reflect on your life and make things right with your God right now coz tomorrow may be too late.
Sam will always be cherished…we hope to meet him in the morning when the dead in Christ shall be raised by our Lord Jesus Christ. AMEN…

It is such a Sad loss but he did live his best life yet , just gone too soon.
A big loss to the music lovers and bitter pill to swallow for the Mtukudzi family. But together as Zimbabweans we grieve with the Tuku family. May Sam`s soul rest in peace.

Sad & painful. Farewell Sam & Owen. Deepest condolences to the Mtukudzi & Chimhare families. May the Holy Spirit, our Comforter, carry you through this bereavement. To those of us still alive – let us live,forgive and work hard at the work we are called to do in this life. When night comes nobody can work.
im very sorry for the lost i didnt know him but i feel bad
Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
