Hie,thanks…my role mainly is about artists management and song writing.
How successful have you been in executing your role. Who have you managed and where have they gone under your management?
I cant say I really have achieved anything major..but i have managed to be on a different level than before..i have managed bounty Lisa..she came from being an unknown into being a household name, people appreciated her talent she made a name in a space of three months and she was a force to be reckoned with. At the moment I’m working with a close friend who is making waves in zim dance-hall Seh Calaz.
Wow, I love the humility, because those 2 are known outside Zimbabwe. Now it’s interesting to know, how old are you and have you done artist management in school?
I’m 22 years old, and no I haven’t done any artist management at school..but i can say I’m being mentored very well.
Would you like to tell us who is mentoring you? It may be helpful to aspiring managers also if given a chance to learn management in College would you take that up?
I’m being mentored by Jack Radicks. If I get the chance i will take that up. I think i need a firm. foundation, kudzidza hakupere (learning is ongoing).
That is a very good stance I see. What would you say has been the biggest milestone in your career and what would you like to see more of in Zimbabwean Dance-hall?
So far; getting a show and sharing the stage with Tony Rebel is the biggest. I would like to see more of big shows,more radio airplay and our videos being played regularly on TV.
That’s quite a milestone. What was your reaction when you heard you’d share the stage with a legend?
At first I thought we were going to sing in the afternoon, way before the main act because the poster had many big names, so I thought, “haaa we are one of those early performers.” (Laughs).But wen i saw the program my heart skipped a beat because there were 2 slots between us and Tony Rebel.
That must have been an experience for you. So who are your greats in music as a whole. Besides dance-hall who else is on your playlist?
It was a great experience. My greats in music locally it must be Major E . Internationally its Vbyz Kartel. My playlist besides dance-hall is dominated by rap n hip hop. I’m a Meek Mill and Lil Wayne fan.
The ladies out there may be targeting you by now. Anything you’d like to tell them about your relationship status.
(Laughing) All I can say is I’m not married yet.
So if you have a child Godfrey would you like them to follow your career too?
I wouldn’t really want them to follow (me), but I would be proud if they start their own paths and achieve more, I call it career diversity in a family.
As an upcoming role model, what positive change do you want to inflict on your community?
I am disseminating and influencing positive behaviour among youths from local up to national level, awareness on drug abuse Encouraging youths to abstain from all sorts of bad behavior through music.
