Dr Colbert Mukwevho, the Reggae Musician and Producer, who was born and raised in the reggae region of Limpopo, South Africa, had his music temporarily taken down from all streaming platforms.

This strategic move will not only ensure that Dr. Colbert Mukwevho benefits from his hard work but also allows for better monitoring and control over his music, ensuring that he can begin to earnestly earn from the streams.
