Guess who is back! I decided to practice what I preach and get the much-needed rest since I was advocating for self-care during the #WinterABC2021. I am well rested and ready to conquer the world😊.
We have great friends that we have never met but their voices do brighten our day. Their craft had become a part of our lives and they always give us something to look forward to.
They forced their ways in our homes and they have kept us entertained when we are stuck in traffic, during the school run and even on a lazy day. The radio personalities do keep us informed and entertained and thanks to technology the listeners can communicate with the radio personalities via the station’s WhatsApp mobile number. My contact list has the WhatsApp contact numbers for some of my favourite radio stations.
I am a fan of African literature and autobiographies, and I have travelled to different countries through reading various books. The authors do take us on an emotional journey and sometimes the readers sympathise or empathize with the characters. The authors have got the power to raise awareness on different issues and sometimes the readers end up falling in love with the characters in the book they have been reading. I must confess, I fell in love with Qhawe from the Hlomu series written by Dudu Busani-Dube.
A family gathering in Zimbabwe would be incomplete if the music playlist does not include songs from the legends such as Oliver Mtukudzi, Simon Chimbetu, Leonard Zhakata, The Bundu boys, Chiwoniso Maraire … should I go on? The music from these legends has managed to cut across all generations and it is still relevant in the 21st century. The music from these legends has been there for me during the good and the bad times. Listening to the songs from some of my favourite Zimbabwean music legends feels like wrapping a warm blanket around your body on a cold winter night.
