“What doesn’t challenge you won’t change you”

Born in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe (19 November 1998). 

I used to mostly like singing  R&B and Hip Hop songs back in 2003… influenced by the likes of G-Unit and Eminem.

As I grew older, I wanted to start my music career.

I started recording myself using earphones and an application on my laptop called Audacity. I eventually went to look for a studio and luckily I found one that had the right mic and extremely talented producers – Donny Chords, Fish f Mcswagg and Tha Dawg. 

I made my first song there (Cheater) and it became a hit!

Radio stations started calling me for interviews and at the time I was still at school (doing my A-Levels) 

Music didn’t really affect my performance at school, but it actually enhanced my confidence and made me feel like I could achieve anything.

I made my second hit single during school holidays (Ammara Brown).

When I finished school the same year I got my first nomination – and I won the award! 

The same year in 2017, I performed at the StarFM annual party and to my surprise, most people knew the lyrics to my songs and some sang along word for word. 

From there, the local youth identified me as their “Young Influencer” and I owe it to them to keep on making music.

“For what it’s worth, it’s never too late to be who you want to be. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start over”
