Stunner taking it all in his stride

HARARE - Zim hip-hop star Stunner, who was recently fined $150 and sentenced to 210 hours of community service for driving without a driver’s licence and ramming into four parked vehicles, appears to be taking the punishment with good grace.

The Ndaita Mbiri singer has been posting videos on social media which show him dressed in overalls and designer shoes while doing various chores with workers at Greendale District Office.

On the videos, mostly posted on Snapchat, Stunner seems to be enjoying his interaction with workers at the district office particularly when doing cooking duties.

“Those cooking skills I use at home are now working. Today I am the one who is cooking. Unogona kuvharirwa wonzi sarudza chaunoda kuchera migero kana kubika. Ndirikubika sadza, guru, matumbu (I am sometimes asked to either choose between digging trenches or cooking. Today I am cooking sadza and tripe.),” he says on one of the videos.

It would appear the community service is not stopping Stunner from recording music. He has been working with producers who include Simba Tagz and DJ Towers and is also seen hanging out with other musicians and rappers.

“People are asking me how much sleep I get. Normally it’s four hours and at times six.

“Soon after working at the district offices, I go home, bath and head for the studio. I am always working,” he said.

Though most comments on Stunner’s community service pictures have been complimentary, there are some who have hit out at the Zim hip-hop artiste for allegedly not showing remorse.

Bernard Garikayi Mudoti wrote on Facebook: “I guess you (Stunner) must be a role model. What will we learn from you when you tend to be reckless like that, I mean driving without a licence…”

Stunner responded: “Zvikoro zvavharwa here ukuda kudzidza kwandiri? Your future is in trouble then.”

One Desmond Mapini also attacked Stunner on Facebook for bragging about the community service.

“You are not even showing remorse, let alone humility. You should be doing your community service in private. What you did in the CBD of all the places was shameful and disgraceful …”

The Tazoita Cash Records boss refused to take the blow lying down. He answered back rather curtly.

“Ukuda kuti ndigare mumba ndichichema? It’s called an accident wangu. I move on with life. That’s how I manage to smile every day. I’m going to open a beer after this text. Itirwai nyasha.”
