It is common sense that a man cannot  easily catch a woman who is cheating unless the woman wants you to get caught. Mathius Mhere's wife mgiht have made a mistake and didn't know how to make that wrong right.

She didn't know how to stop the affair and the boyfriend (Gift) was probably black mailing her, since he knew a lot about her. This is why its important to never tell friends about your marital problems. Gift knew something that Mhere's Wife didn't want Mathias to know, and he (Gift) might have used that information to manipulate her.
Mathius Mhere's Wife Responds 'GIFT IS A MANIPULATOR LIKE GUMBURA.'
Mhere's wife had to pretend to love gift or the cat in the bag gets nasty: So lets explore the possible reasons why she wanted to get caught,at:

1. Can’t Handle the Guilt: The cheater, realizing what he or she is doing is wrong, becomes so consumed with guilt that he or she wants to get caught because they can’t handle it anymore. The cheater may not know how to tell his or her mate about the affair, but will readily confess, if caught.

2. Doesn't Know How to End the Affair: The cheater may have been inadvertently drawn into infidelity without really intending to cheat on his or her mate. Realizing their mistake, the cheater wants to end the affair but doesn’t know how. The cheater knows that getting caught by you means the affair will definitely have to end.

3. To Call Attention to Problems in the Relationship: Sometimes a cheater want to get caught in order to call his partner’s attention to problems in their relationship. He or she may not know how to verbally express exactly what is wrong. Or the cheater may have tried to point out the problem, and their mate ignored the complaint, or failed to take it seriously. So as a last resort, the cheater does something drastic like cheating and getting caught, forcing the two of you to see a marriage or couples counselor to address the real issues behind the affair...

4. Revenge Cheating or Retaliatory Affairs: Maybe she was revenging the 2013 Mhere Mitchelle Jowa $30 Love Saga. Some people engage in revenge cheating or retaliatory affairs to repay a spouse or significant other for cheating on them. It’s the cheater’s way of evening the score. The majority of cheaters who do this are usually women. Most men would rather end the relationship than play emotional games. But sometimes men have revenge affairs, too. When a cheater goes out of his or her way to have a retaliatory affair, it’s almost imperative for the cheater to get caught.
5. To End the Marriage or Relationship
At times a cheater will engage in what marriage counselors call an “exit affair.” The cheater wants out of the marriage or relationship, but doesn’t want to be the one to pull the plug. Knowing that infidelity is a deal breaker for his or her mate, the cheater takes the coward’s way out. The cheater leaves enough clues to make certain of getting caught, thus forcing his or her mate to call it quits. The cheater may be in love with his or her affair partner, and wants to get a divorce to be with that person. Or it may not be about the affair partner at all. The cheater may simply want to be free.

Conclusion, One probability is, Mhere's wife had problems with Mhere and told Gift as a family friend. Its unfortunate Gift manipulated Mhere's wife by becoming the man Mhere's wife wanted his husband to be, buy giving him what he should have communicated to Mhere as a friend. ITS BETRAYAL.

United States-based producer Brian Soko has been credited for co-writing Beyonce Knowles’s popular hit “Drunk in Love”. Soko is a hip-hop and R ‘n’ B music composer and song writer from Zimbabwe. He has hogged the limelight following revelations he was one of the writers of Beyonce’s hit that features her husband Jay-Z.

Credits for the song indicate it was written by Noel “Detail” Fisher, Beyoncé Knowles, Shawn Carter, Andre Eric Proctor, Rasool Diaz, Brian Soko, T.Mosley and J.Harmon.
 Zimbabwean pens song for Beyonce
It appears Beyonce loves to work with Africans in making her music. Some dances on her song “Run This World” were borrowed from a Mozambican group. Soko could be one of the many Africans that have been involved in Beyonce’s music.

The social platforms are booming with many praises for Soko’s great achievement.

“Congrats dude. It is probably the dream of every song writer to co-write with Beyonce.

“You have raised the country flag high bro,” posted Kicksonfire on Facebook.


Well-known local artiste, DJ Naida, tweeted: “So just found out you were part of the production team on Bey’s Drunk in love? TOOO DOPE! ZIM REPPIN!!”

Soko was apparently humbled by the comments and his response was: “Thank you for the love, so appreciated.”

Soko’s works, known on social platforms as “beatsbysoko”, indicate he also worked on a compilation album with the super-group Rich Gang.

“100 Favors”, which features Detail, Birdman and Kendrick Lamar, was also co-written and composed by Soko.

The talented producer has managed to expand his catalogue by working with other prominent African artists such as K.O. from Teargas on a track titled “Mission Statement” and DJ Vigilante’s “Sgelekeqe” that features Ma-E, PRO, Maggz.

“Drunk in Love” debuted at number 12 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart. It has generally peaked inside the top 50 positions in most European countries singles chart. It has hit number 10 in the UK – becoming Beyonce’s 17th Top 10 hit on the chart.Its lyrics depict female sexuality as Knowles adopts sensual and confident vocals.

A woman from Chitungwiza was thoroughly assaulted with a belt by her husband after she refused to let him insert his fingers into her privates at the onset of a bedroom session.

32-year-old Peter Kumusamala arrived home on the night of November 14 at about 11 pm, sloshed.

He asked his wife to undress and told her he wanted to engage in intercourse, a request she obliged to. He reportedly told his wife that he wanted to ‘warm’ her engine up by revving her ‘honeypot’ with his fingers.
Woman Bashed For Refusing Hubby’s Attempt to Finger Her
The wife, Fadzai Mahwite, objected saying it was too painful.

The snub drove Kumusamala up the wall, he went berserk, armed himself with a belt which he mercilessly used to thrash the hapless woman.

A report was made to the Police leading to the arrest of Kamusala and Mahwite was medically examined after the assault.


Kamusamala was fine $50 by Chitungiza Magistrate Don Ndirowei for physical abuse.

Nigerian pop star has offered up her virginity in exchange for the release of the schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram.

Adokiye Kyria, who describes herself as a United Nations Peace Ambassador on her website, gave an interview to Vanguard Showtime magazine in which she mused on the fate of the girls.

The 23-year-old said: “This is 11pm in the night and do you know what I am thinking about?

“Those little girls, where they are and what could be happening to them. It is just unfair. They are too young. I wish I could offer myself in exchange.”

“They are between 12 and 15-year-old girls for Christ’s sake. I am older and more experienced.
Adokiye Kyrian Offers her Virginity to Boko Haram
“Even if 10 to 12 men have to take me every night, I don’t care. Just release these girls and let them go back to their parents.”

In April Kyria announced she was a virgin adding “Any man that buys my mum the private jet I had promised her, wins my heart.”

Boko Haram kidnapped 276 schoolgirls in April, sparking international outrage and the #bringbackourgirls hashtag.

A month after the abduction, a chilling video purportedly filmed by the jihadi extremists was released.

It showed the Islamist militants and girls in floor-length Islamic dress speaking to camera.

Speaking for around 17 minutes Boko Haram's leader Abubakar Shekau said the girls have been converted to Islam and would not be released until Boko Haram prisoners are freed.

The girls are seen wearing black and grey Islamic dress called a chador (loose cloak) in an undisclosed rural location.

The group was founded in 2002 in Nigera's northeastern Borno district - where the schoolgirls may have been taken - and is committed to creating an Islamic state in Nigeria, where Sharia courts would dispense criminal justice.

Boko Haram - which means "Western education is sinful" - is only a nickname. Their preferred name is Jama'atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda'awati Wal-Jihad, which means "people committed to the propagation of the prophet's teachings and jihad".

Self-proclaimed Dancehall King, Winky D-real name Wallace Chirimuko insists that he still rules the roost when it comes to the bubble gum like music genre and is not going anywhere!

Despite the emergence of a new crop of talented dance hall artistes over the last few years, Biggie-as the chanter is fondly known-says he has been at the helm for the past decade.

The Kambuzuma bred chanter opened up in his latest single titled Dancehall Igwe.
Self-proclaimed Dancehall King, Winky D-real name Wallace Chirimuko insists that he still rules the roost when it comes to the bubble gum like music genre and is not going anywhere!
Part of the song lyrics go: “Ngavandiwaridzire chi red carpet…buda munzira separi kuuya motorcade. Ninja security yakabata ma machete..chingamidzai dancehall Igwe, ten years ndiri panyanga and handibve.

“Crown inenge woolen yangu saka haibve…Biggie ndi dancehall igwe.”

He goes on to brag he was the first Dancehall artist to play for Arabs and White people, he however adds that in the same track that it’s not boasting but merely stating a fact that he has shaped the genre to be what it is to date and he has been rewarded by a high number of endorsement deals.

He also urges dancehall artistes to desist from using Juju so that they rule Dancehall since it does not last.

It appears Winky D and Soul Jah Love have signed a binding pact if their joint performance at Takashinga Cricket Club is anything to go by. Winky D, who graced Soul Jah Love’s 25th birthday bash held over the weekend in Highfield as a special guest, thrilled the crowd with his hit “Paita Party” before the two performed their duet “MaGaffer”.

Energy was high on and off the stage and the security had a torrid time in maintaining order as scores of fans moved closer to the stage.
WInky D and Soul Jah Love form pact, Biggie now Big Brother
Apparently, the song is about how the two have shrugged off competition from their contemporaries.
It says the two are in a class of their own and whoever wants to dare their dominance does so at their own peril.
Winky and Soul Jah Love perform together
Winky D, who had never attended birthday bashes for any artiste since hitting the big time, said he felt honoured to be invited by Soul Jah Love, who is now known as “Chibaba Chacho”.

However, Soul Jah Love, who took delight in introducing Winky D as “Chimukoma Chacho”, came prepared for the bash with his sweetheart Bounty Lisa in tow.


By any measure the joint performance was the climax of the gig, which had other heavy hitters in the likes of Kinnah, Killer T, Shinsoman, Cello Culture, Dhadza D and Ricky fire.

The absence of Seh Calaz, who is perceived as Soul Jah Love’s arch-rival in the genre, did not in any way dampen the spirit at the show as Killer T put up a splendid act.

Killer T, who is also known as the Chairman, was on point from start to finish. He did not waste time and churned out hit after hit to which the crowd sang along.

Another fiery artiste Kinnah made his presence felt with a flawless act and at one time the crowd called for encore and he obliged.

Dhadza D did not disappoint for a minute and he did justice to his set performing all the crowd’s favourites.

PROPHET Walter Magaya’s Bulawayo crusade was punctuated with miracles as the lame walked, throwing away their crutches and wheelchairs during the two days at AmaZulu Sports Club.People from all walks of life thronged the venue and gave testimony of how they had been healed during the crusade.

Magaya had declared that the church services were going to free people from joblessness, financial problems and evil spirits, among others.

“Today is your day of testimony, you will tell your neighbour that you were there (at the Bulawayo Crusade) and you were healed,” said Magaya.

He said God has the power to answer one’s prayers immediately.
Miracles galore at Magaya crusade
“We have heard in the past that we should be patient with regards to answers from God. Well I say that God is a God of now, now, now, now, now,” said Magaya with a huge roar accompanying the declaration.

He said people should denounce all their enemies who do not want to see them prosper in life and use juju to tie them down.

“There are people who steal your hair, use your picture and pieces of cloth to make juju so that they block your prosperity in life. Others do not want you to be promoted while others do not want you to keep your job. I say denounce them in the name of Jesus so that whatever they want to do does not prosper,” said Magaya.

He rounded off his meeting with more healing sessions for the sick and physically challenged.

Magaya’s preaching on the first day was taken from Bible verse Acts 16 verse 25-26 which reads: “And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them. And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed.”

THE Zimbabwe Music Awards has introduced a new online submission system for artists who are to submit their works for the awards which to be held in October this year. In an interview with this publication, ZIMA Founder and Chairman Joseph Nyadzayo said the move is meant to be in line with technology as well as to allow musicians to submit their entries from anywhere as long as they can have internet access.
Zima invites submissions
“We have decided to introduce a new online submission system in an effort to embrace technology. The new system will allow musicians to register from wherever they are in the country or even if they are on tour anywhere in the world they are able to submit their entries,” he said.


He pointed out that besides advantages of the system technologically; the new system is transparent for artists.
“The system is firstly, very transparent. It allows us to keep track of every entry without any being lost,” he added.

He also highlighted that ZIMA has not totally abandoned the traditional way of submitting entries saying for those who do not have access to internet manual forms are available for them at the ZIMA offices.

ZIMA started in 2003 as an annual awards ceremony to acknowledge and honour musical excellence and creativity it also provided a high profile and multi faceted celebration of the rich cultural diversity of local music, but as a result of the economic challenges the country faced for the past years, the last awards last edition were held in 2007.

Despite the seven year break, organisers of the event have promised a razzmatazz event with the Recording Industry of South Africa which is behind the South Africa Music Awards promising to assist this year’s awards so that they become successful.

Lovemore Meya Arts Correspondent—
The environment was emotional and most people in the audience fought back tears when Ammara Brown, the stepdaughter to the late mbira exponent Chiwoniso Maraire, chronicled a touching account of their relationship, describing her stepmother as a cultural icon. The songstress said there were many facets to Chiwoniso.

Ammara’s emotional account
“Most people knew her as an artist, but there was more to her. She was beautiful and her ‘light’ did not end on stage but would continue to shine.
“Through Chiwoniso I learnt that mbira is not a normal instrument, but it is very powerful as she was able to prove that no matter where she went in the world, she was able to effortlessly and selflessly share that ability and gift,” said Ammara.

She said this during a discussion on “Tribute to Chiwoniso Maraire” at Book Café recently titled “Chiwoniso Maraire: The Rebel Woman,The Flame Lily of Zim Music”.
Ammara almost broke down as she poured out her heart.

“Every time I spent with her, I felt warmness and I felt the connection to the instrument after having learnt it from an expert of such a kind.
“More importantly even long she is gone, the mbira is my step, it helps me to find the artist that I am. That I have to be so distinctively

Zimbabwean no matter where I go and for me this defines her as a cultural icon and she should be remembered.”
Professor Fred Zindi described Chiwoniso as a national cultural heritage.


“In her short but rich musical career, she became a national cultural heritage itself. As Stephen Chifunyise puts it, ‘she performed the most distinctive performing arts heritage of the Shona people clearly as a disciplined and appointed custodian of a mbira heritage with a mature handling of its intricate spirit’.

“In her stage performances, Chiwoniso did not only reminiscence her late father’s (Dumisani Maraire) passion for mbira music but also his respect for that cultural heritage which she rejuvenated in English,” said Prof Zindi.

Famous poet performer, Chirikure Chirikure defined Chiwoniso in other dimensions as an individual, human being, as an artist and as a friend. Chirikure said he was very fortunate to be part of the Maraire family experience in the early 90s.

“After our performance in Maputo with Chiwoniso in the early 2000s a military officer invited us to his house. The request was for Chiwoniso to play a solo mbira to his daughter in her mother’s hands because the father appreciated Chiwoniso’s music.

“I have seen Chiwoniso in so many different situations and reactions in so many ways but in that particular experience I saw a completely different Chiwoniso from the Chiwoniso I have known all my life.

“She was in between tears, smiling and singing. She said ‘I am not a spirit medium’ but in a number of ways I could feel there was something in her which was beyond a natural being,” said Chirikure.

The event included premiering of her videos, a slide show of her pictures on stage and trips with friends.
It ended with a musical concert where a number of musicians including her own band Vibe Culture performed.

It was a double celebration for sungura musician Alick Macheso’s former wife Fortunate ‘Tafadzwa’ Mapako on Thursday as she turned a year older on the day she received paternity test results.

As H-Metro indicated on Thursday, the results which were released on Wednesday confirmed that the two kids were fathered by Macheso.

Fortunate said she feels relieved following several accusations, which were leveled against her.

“It is painful that you are labeled a woman of loose morals to the whole nation. I feel happy and at the same time relieved following the outcome of the results,” she said.

The tests arose after the musician doubted paternity of the two children Alick Junior and Maneesha whom they sired during their four year union.

Tafadzwa said the fallout with Macheso followed her refusal to have the sungura musician perform his cultural practice of ‘Kutara’ on their daughter.
Tafadzwa Mapako holds the paternity results with her lawyer Gift Nyandoro
“I do not usually want to speak about that issue of ‘kutara’ I would leave it to the law enforcers to react.

“That is the main issue that led to the collapse of our marriage. I opposed to the practice on our daughter. As a mother I have a right to protect my children. Mwanamusikana hauzive kwazvinozosvika,” she said.

She said she told the musician that she would report him to the police if he insisted on the practice and to cover up, the musician rushed to his lawyers.

“I told him that I was going to report to the police and that is when all the problems started.”

Tafadzwa said she has moved on with her life but will not jump into any love affair anytime soon.

There were reports that she has since moved on with another man in Msasa Park, a claim she scoffed.

“I have since moved on with my life alone, without Macheso but I will not have a man in my life anytime soon. I’m not in a relationship with anyone and will not be in any in the near future. I respect my children. Daily, Alick Junior sees an advert of Nash Paints and points at him as his father, so having another man and introducing him to him will not be easy,” she said.

“I’m staying in Msasa Park with my family and you are free to visit not that I have another man,” she said.

H-Metro visited her Msasa Park home where her family was, with Alick Junior saying to her “Makorokoto mhama”.

Asked why she left her Mainway Meadows house she had been letting, Tafadzwa said, the decision was meant to minimise stigmatising her children.

She said the paternity tests will affect the children in future.

“The children are not going to crèche because of that. Even my daughter who was reported to be in Form 5 has since stopped going to school because of that,” she said.

Tafadzwa said being married to the musician as a second wife was a mistake in her life. She said even her own family was against the union.

“Being married to him as a second wife was a mistake. My family was never interested in the polygamous relationship. If you check, my family never spoke a word over our separation,” she said.

She said she has since forgiven the musician but ruled out any prospects of a reunion.

“I have since forgiven him over his doubts on me. However, despite having children together, we will not get back together,” she said.

Speaking on her relationship with Macheso, Tafadzwa said she enjoyed her four-year union so much that she wonders if he is the one who went around badmouthing her.

She said the ‘kutara’ issue was the only problem that led to the collapse of their marriage.

“I enjoyed my marriage to Macheso. Everything was well between us. We differed on the issue of Kutara. He began showing me actions which I did not understand; ignoring me and the next thing was a letter from his lawyer.

“Initially I saw a newspaper article that I had been divorced and I went to his house to inquire what was happening and the next thing, the lawyer was writing to me,” she said.

“Macheso is a very quiet person and sometimes I wonder if all those words really came out of his mouth,” she said.

Commenting on her relationship with Macheso’s senior wife, Nyadzisai, Tafadzwa said everything was well between them.

“I think everything was well between us. We would share a lot and she is the one who would help me when I gave birth. Vana vaitoenda kumba kwake. I believe it was a genuine relationship, I do not know how she took it,” she said.

On Sharon Macheso, Tafadzwa said, “I understand her situation, munhu akaunzirwa mainini akura, so it will be hard for her to adjust and see me as a mother,” she said.

“I do not think I will be able to attend the wedding. I can’t,” she said.

Tafadzwa distanced herself from the alleged threats she was said to have made to the musician.

She also denied any links to the First family or ever blackmailing the musician.

She further denied ever been in the affairs of Macheso’s Orchestra Mberikwazvo.

Fortunate’s lawyer Gift Nyandoro of Hamunakwadi, Nyandoro and Nyambuya Law Chambers said:

“A lot of things have been said about our client. She has been portrayed to the whole country in bad light and currently we are waiting to get full instructions from our client to act legally.

“We cannot allow the Devil to run away with a Christian Bible from a Christian pulpit. We are going to act,” he said.-H-Metro

CHIVI - Dendera star Suluman Chimbetu and rising gospel artiste Mathias Mhere have donated building material worth thousands of dollars to a Chivi widow Elizabeth Sithole who lives in a pole and dagga hut with seven orphans.
The two popular musicians helped the Chivi Rural District Council to mobilise for the building material that will be used to construct a three bedroomed house and a big round hut in Madyangove Village in Chivi North.

The donated building material included doors, door frames, windows, cement, bricks, roofing materials and fencing wire.

Sulu told villagers who gathered to witness the handover of the building material last week that assisting disadvantaged people in Chivi North was their way of giving back to the community.

“In addition to entertaining people, we have a moral duty to assist members of our societies who are from the disadvantaged backgrounds. So as musician with my brother Mathias we teamed up with your local leaders in the council to help our mother here who did not have decent shelter,” Sulu said.

Sulu and Mhere have also pledged to avail school fees to the seven orphans being looked after by the widowed Sithole.

“We have some people who are struggling to have proper shelter who live under squalid conditions. Our council has teamed up with local musicians to mobilise resources to help them get decent accommodation.”

Zivhu added that his council had lined up a fund-raising concert to be held at Mucheke Stadium in Masvingo on June 28 that will feature Tswana music sensation, Slizzer, Jah Prayzah and several other local musicians. Daily News
