Lady Squanda stars in new comedy

HARARE - Award-winning Zimdancehall songbird Lady Squanda has featured in a comedy titled Who Is the Owner?

Lady Squanda, who was born Sandra Gazi, featured in the one-hour-20-minute-long comedy by Noel Zikhali where she plays the role of an employee at a car-washing facility. The Sadza Rangu singer and her fellow employees routinely drink beer while at work.

In one instance, Lady Squanda and her co-workers contribute some money to buy beer. They send a fellow worker Antonio to go and buy the beer.

As fate would have it, Antonio wins a car after taking part in a beer promotion competition. The car triggers a serious quarrel between Lady Squanda and her fellow workers who endlessly argue over the ownership of the wheels.

The new comedy — Lady Squanda’s debut appearance in a film production — has provided a perfect platform for the controversial artist to showcase her acting skills. Many of her fans encouraged her to venture into acting when she faked her own death in a bid to promote her song Rufu RwaSquanda.

The faked death almost led to the death of her grandmother. The 70-year-old granny developed serious heart complications after learning of Lady Squanda’s ‘death.’

Lady Squanda, who is clearly Zimbabwe’s most celebrated female dancehall star, is also arguably the genre’s most controversial.

Last year she assaulted fellow dancehall singer Lipsy with an empty beer bottle. When asked to comment on the incident by a local newspaper, she not only admitted to assaulting Lipsy but she also promised to continue attacking her.

The ever-controversial star once disappeared from the stage while performing at a bar in the city leaving the promoter of the show and music fans seething with anger.
