Calls have been made for government to extend funding and opportunities to the arts industry in Manicaland. Vuvuzela Studios Director Zvaidaishe Martin Makaya said most corporates are reluctant to fund and avail opportunities for the industry in Manicaland with most sponsors preferring entities in Harare. Word of mouth poet Shingirirai Manyengava echoed the same sentiments, revealing that piracy is further crippling the arts industry in the province blocking artistes from rising.
