Where else could I have been, like for real? My love for Boity is unnatural....

Have you ever been left on read and you convince yourself its a test to remain sane? Thembi Terry is a right here, right now kind of person. So imagine when I went to this one job interview and they kept me waiting for close to...

Do you ever wake up in the morning and dread going to work? This was me at some point of my life. My boss was a killjoy. Every time she would pull up to the driveway despair would fill the room and all joy would commit suicide....

Being a publicist is basically marketing a talent in a way that makes it lucrative and appealing. There are many talented people in Zimbabwe but you don’t know too many of them because they don’t have a functional management team or a publicist. If more...

Look at procrastination. When I wanted to write this post I was sitting on 11 000 followers. Anyway, two thousand followers later and I am still in the same position that I was then. People imagine that having many followers online is a thing. Apparently, it...

  I'm so excited and scared at the same time.   What is a vlog? A vlog simply put is video blogging.   How did the idea to vlog come about? I attended the #WomenCreativeWednesday when the award winning lifestyle blogger Ameera Mimi was the special guest. She told us to be...

We are four months into the year. How’s it going for you? How many resolutions have you stuck to? How much have you achieved? If you could base the rest of the year on your first quarter how’s it looking? I’m proud to say that I have made so...

Writing excites the living daylights out of me and I don’t usually use my gifts for personal, monetary gain but gotta get this money where its at. Freelance writing has been a source of income for me and yes it has its advantages but what...

Getting me to accept your friend request takes a scientific process that closely resembles applying for an American visa. I used to just accept everybody for the sake of numbers and deluded by the assumption that if they sought me its for a good reason....

An Aida Marie underwear model advert landed in one of my Whatsapp groups and I had seen it before when I was in Bulawayo and I didn’t apply. But then, here it was again. Is this a sign? My friend and I then decided to toy...

HAPPY NEW YEAR Everybody! It’s a little late but what the heck. Let’s get right into it. Every year I set blogging goals and usually I keep them a secret because I don’t want to be held accountable to my readers but hey, new year, new things. So,...

The baseline of the music pulsates through her body as she does her dance moves that resemble a mating ritual. She leans back onto his chest and whispers something to him. He leads her away down a dark corridor towards a crowded bar. She staggers onto her chair...

As a publicist I have encountered a wide range of personalities, talent and obstacles. During my career I have developed a list of the naughty and nice. Some have earned it and some I nullify for reasons best known to me. Ultimately, I have drawn...

The creative industry is tired with the same old people showing up and claiming to be veterans of the industry. Where is the new blood? I've noticed that everytime there is a 'do' there's usually the same people attending you can almost predict what the guest...

In the days of my youth, I used to work with young artistic youth in Bulawayo. I had this dream of having a talent agency of a new excellent standard. The ideas were there and the people were there but practical menial labourers were not....

Charlie Sheen’s confession about his HIV status came at an opportune time as we were headed to World AIDS Day. It has not only raised awareness on the issue but has also exposed the ignorance surrounding the topic. Ignorance hinders the fight towards zero infections....

The Top 100 Influential people in Bulawayo was released last week. I wasn’t even checking for it when the congratulatory messages started flooding in. Screenshots verified the claims that I was indeed on the said list. At first I was shocked so I would politely...

I was only minding my own business, exactly a decade ago, when a friend of mine (Leroy Ndlovu) told me that my voice was annoying. Mind over matter. Years later a clip goes viral of that Ambivalence character and somebody says to me you sound...

Due diligence is an investigation of a business or person prior to signing a contract, or an act with a certain standard of care. It can be a legal obligation, but the term will more commonly apply to voluntary investigation "Crazy" is the adjective used to describe me the...

Here’s the scene, I’m sitting in my cubicle at work minding my own business and in comes Tony G. Yes, the Tony G. He says to me, “Follow me to the studio.” You can never be too sure so of course I asked why. “You’re gonna record an...
