By Own Correspondent| Sweden based musician cum author Luckson Chikutu popularly known as Manluckerz on Sunday launched his much-awaited book titled Flashback Identity.
“I am thrilled to have launched this book. The hardcopy and e-book are already there, thanks to my publishers Vulkan Media,” said the ecstatic Manluckerz adding that “Plans are at an advanced stage to engage a Zimbabwean publisher so that the book can be distributed locally”.
The book will be on the shelves at the Stockholm African Festival on November 16.
The book which has been translated into English following its success in Swedish has been described by cultural enthusiasts as rich in preserving the Zimbabwean culture.
Manluckerz said his wish is for the book to be used in schools.
“I really want to share it with the new generation and adults about how best we can document our Zimbabwean culture and history. I will be happy to see the book being used in schools.
“I want to inspire my fellow country men about how one could achieve his or her goals through determination, dedication and discipline. This book is about how to preserve our identity and culture,” he said.
The musician- cum-author said writing his debut book has been an experience.
“The writing of the book has been a long journey with positive feedback. It was motivated by the need to document the cultural history I received when I was growing up,” he said.
“The writing of the book has been a long journey with positive insights I received and a high ambition to write about my family’s history, the cultural heritage I learnt when I was growing up. The book also captures how music and dance are used to influence humanity in Zimbabwe,” said Manlukerz.
