Seasoned gospel songstress Fungisai Zvakavapano Mashavave has revealed that she joined Zimdancehall as a positive alternative for her children and debunk myths that the genre is only about obscenities.
Fungisai raised people’s eyebrows two years ago when she dropped her comeback buster titled ‘Vanondibatirana’ featuring Killer T, on a dancehall tip.
The move left her gospel fans confused and worsened when she openly declared in one of her interviews that she was not a gospel artist, in the process earning herself the title, Zimbabwe’s version of Hannah Montana.
But, in an interview with 263Chat, Fungisai said after realizing that Zimdancehall beats are irresistible, she took it upon herself to give Christian youths an alternative on a beat that all of them could run away from.
“I came into dancehall as a mother with a special concern for my children, because, leaving them to sing the obscenities, violence and everything bad associated with the genre without me providing an alternative message would hound me and the whole society.
“As a result I took it upon myself to provide Christian Youths with an alternative on a beat that we all cannot run away from. It was a choice on either running away from Zimdancehall and lose my children or join in, because this is what’s current,” said the Handina Kururama hit maker.
Meanwhile the 37 year old recently released two videos (family video and the official video) for her song Kumusoro which is doing well on Youtube.
