The “Bhogo-bhogo” hitmaker and urban groove sensation will never be replaceable after departing in 2019.

Morgan Hove passed away in Pretoria, South Africa, at the age of 47 from dehydration brought on by a running stomach, and he was buried at his residence in Zvishavane.

Hove’s former close friend, Henry Moyo, said that it came as a shock to hear the news that his best friend and breadwinner had died.

“It was painful to hear that my friend Morgan had died.

“He was a good friend, a father, and a pillar of strength to his family,” says Moyo.

Hove is survived by his wife, Ania Mugabe, and five children.

Hove was married in the early 2000s and had one child.

It was a good marriage at first, but after a while, they had disputes, and he got divorced from his first wife.

He then got married again and had two children with his second wife, and when they went to South Africa, they had disputes, and his second wife left him.

He met Ania Mugabe in South Africa, to whom he got married, had two children, and they were happily in love until the day he passed.

“Despite the divorces that my husband had, we were a happy couple.

“Like any other couple, we had disputes here and there, but I loved him so much that we resolved these disputes on our own,” says Mugabe.

Panganai Sithole, Hove’s spokesperson mentions that Hove’s Music career was full of adventure for he managed to connect with many people from the audience, to the sponsors, to even collaborators, so as to make ‘the perfect sound.’

“We grew up in the dusty streets of Mandava, but our bond was made stronger through music.

“Morgan played an acoustic guitar, and he got to feature on our album as the Royal Gospel Ambassadors in 2000, Kumusha in the song ‘Nguva Ndiyoyi’.

“He always aspired for us to create a Zvishavane band, but we didn’t agree on him playing circular music and me playing gospel.

“Despite our different understanding of music, we managed to perform together in public places and some bars because of his influence.

“Hove was someone who believed in his own music, to the extent of calling his music “guyo riddim,” which he defined as a smooth sound of fused genres.

Hove was strategic in the way he handled his music, and the way he showcased his talent was unique.

“He wasn’t afraid to approach anyone in terms of music.

“He even got sponsorship for his “Bhogo-Bhogo” from Mike Cropper, who was an investor in Zimbabwe at that time.

“Morgan had big dreams and a burning desire to make his town famous.

“We were discussing ways to showcase Zvishavane’s talent before he passed away.

“In the first line of his song ‘100% local talent,’ which Jonathan Moyo sponsored while still the Minister of Information, he sings, “Iwe Harare dzuura apo Hyper apinde,” demonstrating his belief that music is not just about it being sung or recorded in Harare but anywhere else.

“He believed that he could make a difference whilst uplifting Zvishavane.

“He and Moyo, who were both well-known DJs in Zvishavane, went by the moniker Dza&Mo.

“I can confidently assert that he was born famous and that he succeeded in everything he touched.

“You know how the crowd reacts when performers like Drake take the stage; I can compare that excitement to the one the Dza&Mo got because people loved him,” says Sithole.

All things considered, Morgan Hove was a true Zvishavane sensation and idol because of his ability to use music to motivate, collaborate, and explore uncharted territory; he was also a loving and devoted father to his family.
