Marriage will kill my career: Lipsy

HARARE - Zimdancehall artiste Tendazvaitwa Chitimbe popularly known as Ninja Lipsy believes marrying now might jeopardise her musical career.

Although she is in a steady relationship, Lipsy said her marriage is not an achievement at all; hence it is not part of her list of priorities in life.

Once rumoured to be dating Ninja President Winky D after the two collaborated on hit song Taitirana the singer told the Daily News instead of people concentrating on her love life, they should expect new and exciting musical projects from her.

“People should expect new and big musical projects from me this year, not wedding bells. I am in a steady relationship with a guy that I am not at liberty to reveal. He is not a public figure munhu anongozvitsvagirawo mari yake.

“Although my man is supportive, I however, know a number of female artistes who were finished when they got married.”

Her other priority was to push her music onto the international market. “I am glad Lipsy is now a popular name in Zimbabwean music circles so my challenge now is to push the name and works into regional and international music markets.”

Though she has made her name in Zimdancehall as a chanter, Lipsy has no album under her name.

“I only have single tracks on the market but this year definitely I am going to release an album,” said the Highfield-born artiste.

Lipsy is signed by a United Kingdom-based stable, Rokafella and she is the ambassador of the organisation.

Director of Rokafella Promotions, Roka Fella told this publication from his UK base that they have massive plans for Lipsy this year and other female artistes signed to them who include Lady Bee, Rebel and Titania among others.

“We strive to give posh into the ghetto. We have launched a riddim No to Women Abuse which features almost every female Zimdancehall artiste in the country.

“We have lined up awareness campaign concerts in Zimbabwe, South Africa and the UK among others where we shall advocate for a free society where women are treated fairly with no abuse but with due respect,” he said.

“Apart from No to Women Abuse campaigns, we have also lined up epilepsy awareness concerts. The campaign has been inspired by Lipsy who is epileptic since she was a little girl.

“The disease is among the neglected ones in the country, it is not given enough attention in society but rather it is being stereotyped hence there is need to educate the society.

“A conducted survey we have contacted pertaining the ailment revealed that about 83 percent of people suffering from it are not consistently taking medication because of different myths in society hence we believe if somebody like Lipsy spearheads the campaign we will win,” he said.
