Born on the 30th of September, 1958 in Chinhoye, Zimbabwe, [b]Biggie Tembo[/b] was the charismatic lead singer and guitarist with Bhundu Boys.

Despite their meteoric rise to international success in the early eighties and because of irregular behaviour and too many external interests that caused dissatisfaction with the other members, he was axed from the band in 1990. He continued to perform and release some solo material in the UK - albeit only to a lukewarm reception.

Biggie eventually returned to Zimbabwe with his family in 1994 but committed suicide in Harare's mental institution in 1995.
