Success smiles at Kessia after 16 years

HARARE - Highly-energetic singer and actress Kessia Masona who plays the lead role in television drama Muchaneta gave a charged and impressive performance together with a number of other female singers at this week’s edition of City Sports Bar’s Jam Session.

The event saw female artistes in form of Edith WeUtonga, James Chimombe’s daughter Tendai, Wanai, Cynthia Mare, Beverly Sibanda and Zoey among others all sharing the stage.


Masona only performed for 15 minutes but her slot saw fans who have fully packed the joint failing to dance along as they were all glued to her jaw dropping act.

“I have been in the industry for the past 16 years but fame only came this year thanks to Muchaneta drama.

“I was expecting breakthrough to come from music but God had other plans for me.

“Now my music career is flourishing because of the popularity of Muchaneta.

“Last week I was invited to grace a number of events in Mozambique owing to the popularity of Muchaneta,” the Marondera bred artiste said.

The mother of two told the Daily News that she does not take drugs.

“I am a Christian but currently I do not belong to any church, though I have the gift to heal through prayer, not really like a prophetess, but I just have a gift of praying for people with sickness, those who are barren among others. Its either I dream of someone’s problem or I feel it in my body,” Masona said.

Masona, who is currently studying towards Bachelors of Science degree in Community Development with the Women’s University of Africa, has a single 10-track album called Gumbomutsvairo that was produced by Munyaradzi Viyali.

“I am currently working on my debut video project. Most of my fans do not know my side of music hence the video will go a long way in promoting Kessia as a musician,” the Tyler Perry-inspired artiste said.
