It is a well known fact that Mugabe and Zanu (PF) authored our misery and object poverty, our former liberator turned tyrany, dictator, murderer and achitect of a pariah state.

People always cannot differentiate between a talent and a curse. A gift/talent converted to be used for worldly benefit and for the glory of the devil becomes a curse. The so called hit song took many to hell, without controvesy the song supported and encouraged fornication. The only help to the life struggling artist: may he repent and be right with God. Satan supported him and used him while the guy was in his good health but now he wants him to hell which is the end of the all unGodly. – Prudence Mudeure
