MUTARE has given birth to a new Afro pop singer, Michelle Madzikangava, who marked her entrance into the music scene with four singles.
The songs namely Ndokuudza Sei, Unondinakidza featuring Emmex Mega, Pandakakuona and Handizvikwanise were recorded and produced by Emmex Mega at Eastview Records in Hob House.
The HobHouse-bred singer, in an interview, said the singles signal her arrival in the showbiz and owes her success to her father, Penjeni Madzikangava and her producer Emmex Mega whom she described as supportive.
“I am where I am because of my father Penjeni who is also a musician.
“He moulded me to be an ambitious artiste. My producer Emmex Mega has been supportive.
“I started singing way back when I was six years old. I used to sing along to my favourite songs on the radio. I continued until I was fully into music.
“I was also inspired by urban groover Diana Samukange. I then decided to take my music a step further.
“I am inspired to do more and I am currently working on another single called Mumoyo which will hit the streets soon,” she said.
Mimi who did her primary education at Rujeko Primary School and went to Mutare Girls High for her secondary education said she is looking forward to study cosmetology at Mutare Poly soon.
She was born 19 years ago in Mutare. She is the first born in a family of three.
“We have great musicians in our country. We can make mention of Jah Prayzah, Sulu Chimbetu and Amara Brown.
“These musicians are doing very well on the local and international scene but there is still a lot of work to be done for our music to reach those international standards. I think we will reach there some day,” she said.
