Munya Chidzonga lands role in Generations The Legacy



Munya Chidzonga

Munya Chidzonga keeps on shining bright as he is rapidly making a bold statement in South Africa’s showbiz.

 Chidzonga made his big break on television screens when he represented Zimbabwe in the Big Brother series close to a decade ago.

The reality show, which earned him the moniker “Diamond Boy”, appears to have opened a plethora of avenues for the gentleman.

The multi-talented Chidzonga has since produced and starred in local movie productions like “Lobola” (2010), “The Gentlemen” (2011) and most recently “Tete B”.

His efforts were rewarded in 2012 after he scooped a Nama Award for the Most Outstanding actor in the Film and Television category for his performance in “The Gentleman”.

However, it is his in-roads in the South African small screen that has created interesting talking points among Zimbabweans that follow Mzansi soapies.

Two years ago, he auditioned for a role on “Generations” but instead got a role in’s “Mzansi Love” and “Rhythm City”.

He did not disappoint when he appeared on the productions.

In fact, he was a marvel to watch, which further created an opportunity for him to feature in one of South Africa’s oldest soaps — “Generations”.

Munya Chidzonga recently got a call from his agent who is across Limpopo, informing him that he had landed a role in the highly sought after television series.

The rising star is set to play the role of a Zimbabwean detective named Chakunda who will be hunting down the legendary Jack Mabaso who is causing mayhem in Zimbabwe.

Speaking in an interview about this development, Chidzonga said, “It’s all about going Pan African, building an African industry for a wider audience with guys from Ghana playing Zambian roles and Zimbabweans playing Nigerian roles.”

Chidzonga joins the likes of Mbo Mahocs, Tongai Chirisa and Danai Gurira who belong to an illustrious acting league of Zimbabweans doing wonders in the diaspora.

“The idea is to build a portfolio of great work that people will remember years later,” said Chidzonga.

Tawanda Mambo (Saintfloew)goes to SA for rehab




Zimbabwean rapper Saintfloew is looking to kick his drug addiction once and for all and has reportedly flown out to South Africa where he is going to receive rehabilitation services.

In an interview with Star FM’s Ollah 7 last week, Saintfloew admitted that he was taking drugs, although he was in the process of trying to quit. He refused to admit whether he had been taking the dreaded crystal meth, known popularly as Guka or Dombo.

I cannot confirm the allegations and I cannot say anything about them, so I am not confirming anything and I am not talking about anything. But what I am saying is we came out from the wrong way, a lot happens here in Chitown (Chitungwiza) and I took multiple drugs.

I am still working on quitting taking some of the things. I am not confirming anything but all I can say is there are some drugs that I am trying to stop,” he said.

Saintfloew also revealed that his drug addiction had little to do with the music industry.

It is not like the pressures of music cause artists to take drugs, but before we became artists, we had nothing to do and we had all the time to take drugs. Now if it is regret or moving on, that is what I am working on,” he said

In an interview with H-Metro before the rapper’s departure to South Africa, Saintfloew’s mother, Ebenezer Mambo said that her son’s struggles with drugs were linked to a tough upbringing. She said the musician lost his father at the age of two.

We lost his father when they were still very young and there was no man in the house to whip my son into line. I tried my best to give him a life, but there are some times when a father is needed in the upbringing of children.

I have never doubted my son’s intelligence, but I was worried when he continued pursuing music. He ended up taking drugs and it pains me a lot,” she said.

Mambo praised Nash Paints Group executive chairman, Tinashe Mutarisi, who convinced Saintfloew to go for rehab in SA, for helping her son get back on track.

“I am humbled that good people still exist as is the case with Mr Tinashe Mutarisi. I think he was sent by God to save my son from abusing drugs.

“Like the biblical Moses, Mutarisi has just done the best for my family and I hope my son will come back from South Africa a changed man,” she said.

The couple has been in the news before when Mushonga publicly expressed concern about Mbau’s whereabouts after she went missing in Dubai. It was later discovered that Mbau had returned to South Africa without informing Mushonga.
