Star FM radio host KVG (real name Kudzai Violet Gwara) says she would like to take up music as a hobby after a clip of her singing with Winky D at the Bulawayo City Hall car park this past Saturday went viral.
The radio host, who was in Bulawayo for the Ecocash Ziyawa Draw, impressed a lot of people when she sang Gemma Griffith’s lyrics on Winky D’s MuGarden song well.
Speaking on the impromptu performance, KVG said: “I’ve always loved singing. Before I started my broadcasting career, I once went for a musical show audition and unfortunately, I didn’t make it.
After that, I then auditioned for radio and made it, but music was always something I was open to, but just never got a chance to pursue.”
Following the positive response she received in Bulawayo and from fans who watched the clip online, KVG said she was seriously considering taking up music as a hobby.
“I love radio so much but I’m now considering doing music as a hobby. Not as a full time career though.”
She said she was grateful to Winky D for entrusting her to sing Gemma’s part.
“I’m grateful to Winky D for giving me the opportunity to sing Gemma’s part alongside him. It was such an honour.
“He knows how crazy I was about the song when it came out as I’d always sing Gemma’s part. When he was looking for someone to sing Gemma’s part, I was at the front and I raised my hand. He saw me and I think he just said to himself ‘let me just give this girl a chance’.”
Besides her radio career, KVG, who presents the 3 to 6 Express drive time show with Phathisani Sibanda, said she is working on philanthropy projects which are in the pipeline.
