Jenje said recently that the series, his debut offering, was adopted from the mystery of the late Shona Emperor, Munhumotapa, who folklore says had the power to fly. He dedicates the series to leading play rites – Cont Mhlanga and Godwin Mawuru, his mentors.
“They taught me so many vital aspects,” said Jenje. “Since joining Amakhosi in 1993, I have never looked back and I will continue to use my God-given talent in arts.”
Apart from his ZBC job, Jenje also edited Zimbabwe’s award-winning tragic drama, Stitsha, which caused havoc and had to be cut off-air in the 1990s. He has also done editing with different studios, taking after his mother, Joyce Jenje-Makwenda, who has produced more than five award-winning documentaries and published five books.
Jenje’s series has already received recognition from SA movie channel, Mzansi Magic and Botswana television.Post published in: Entertainment
