Cindy is the first born daughter of Mr Richard Munyavi Mrs Maria-Rhoda Munyavi,big sister to Ruvimbo and Christina munyavi.Some say I am Perfectionist,I just think ‘I like things to be done a certain way’.

my music,not my personal life or anything else.

and Angelique Kijo.

My career is... My career is now making sense ever since it stopped being a hobby and became a business. I started recording in 2005, I have been nominated for twelve awards including the categories Outsanding Artist, Outstanding Female Musician, Best Urban Groover, Outstanding Song, Outstanding Video. I Recieved a Victors Award in 2012. I continue to break new ground and people in other markets (countries) ,like Malawi, Zambia, Mozambique are responding well to my music.I have featured on a song with 2face Idibia(nigeria) Bongani Fassie, Ishmael (South Africa),Roberto Banda( Zambia) ,Theo Thompson (Malawi). I am currently working with Kim Nain and Jedani from Jamaica. I had 3 number one singles in 2012 alone and my new band has been well received. My Album Hearbreak Kidd is scheduled for August / September, together with my dvd compilation. If I could do it all again I would... share the stage with Beenie Man. A truly amazing moment for me because I am a huge fan of his.

Give us a brief History of your life... I was born in highfield,and stayed there until I was eight, then moved to Botswana for two years, stayed in Gweru for a year then moved back to Harare. My family finally settled in waterfalls. Growing up I always wanted to stand out, which meant being first in class, being the fastest sprinter on the track, being the best at long jump athlete in my stream, singing the solo in the school choir....this earned me the nickname Mazivazvose in school.

Describe your career, how it began and where you are now and where you want to go. I started singing in 2005, due to peer pressure from my friend Lorraine Dunduru. I released my debut album ,Kukuda Loving You in December 2005. I was nominated for the 3 awards a year later, (Best Female Urban Groover,Outstanding Musician ,Outstanding Song) in the ZIMA and NAMA awards..That really gave my a wake up call, and I realised that people actually took me seriously. That is when music stopped being my hobby. I spent the next three As a little girl I... I loved to hang out with years working on my second album Tha my dad and listen to Simon and Naison Groove Theory which I released in October Chimbetu records, and learn the latest house music dance moves from my teenage 2010. It contained hits like Nerudo which was number one online for five months. aunts and uncles so I could show off to the I bagged a couple of award nominations other kids at nursery school. I was rated for that album. I am currently working on the best dancer in my class ( Kingsmead Nursery School). I was banned from playing my third album Heartbreak Kidd and I am under pressure because I released three mahumbwe by the other kids in the neighbourhood because I reported that they were singles from the album so far and two of the songs ,Ndidzorere Moyo Wangu, and Ndini getting it on, but the truth is I wanted to be Ndinaye have hit the number 1 spot on the the mother in mahumbwe, I was tired of local charts. I want my music to spread playing the mouse. across the world, but right now ,I want to work on making my mark in Africa. I want to The legacy I want to leave is one of... end up being an icon like Miriam Makeba, excellence... I want to be remembered for JEWEL MAGAZINE ZIMBABWE

What have you learnt about yourself that has most surprised you? I have learnt that persevererance pays (It suprised me that I could be so patient but I guess the Zimbabwean music industry redefined me). What opportunities have resulted from your career choice? Because of my career choice ,Iets jus say I have created an opportunity to do what I love the most, which is to give people a little joy, and certain doors I would never have knocked on are now accessible to me. Dream holiday destination? is Hawaai. Tell us about your relationship with your parents? I am very close to my parents, they are very supportive,and they keep me grounded. I believe its not easy kuva nemwanasikana anoita zvemagitare. Describe Cindy the multifaced artist? The reason why I am a multifaced artist is that I am very experimental and I like to try new things and I get bored very easily. I am blessed because I am able to do many things well. I sing, rap, public speaker, radio presenter, designer, sportswoman.. etc...I actually have to cut out a lot of things because I dont have the time. Favourite childhood memory? My favourite childhood memory was when my parents threw me a birthday bash when I turned three. I didnt really understand what was going on then ,but whatever it was, I liked it, the new dress ,the new bike, the big cakes, vanhu vakandiunganira, jus made me feel special... Where did you go to school? I went to a couple of different schools because we were always moving, but mainly Courtney Selous primary school and Vainona High.

Who is or was your role model? My mom is my role model. What do you feel people focus too much on about your personal life? I am a private person so I seldom let people in when it comes to my personal life,sometimes people try to use my songs to find out the personal stuff.

Oprah sent a crew with Tererai back to Zimbabwe to dig up the piece of tin in which she had buried the paper with her goals. Since earning her PhD in 2009, Tererai has obtained a two-year commitment to work with Heifer International (which paid for her PhD), after which she hopes to go back to Africa.
