The Zimbabwe Music Rights Association (Zimura) has released the list of the top 20 highest-earning musicians in terms of royalties disbursed by the organisation.

Zimura is an association of composers and publishers of music that was created to protect the rights of musicians under copyright law. As part of its mandate, Zimura collects the royalties on behalf of the musicians from radio stations that would have played the music. These royalties are disbursed to the artists every year in the month of June according to the airplay that the music received on the stations.
