Sibanda, making a name for herself with electrifying dances and singing talent, said it was high time she rubbed shoulders with the most respected artists around the globe.

She told The Zimbabwean that she had outgrown Zimbabwe and was looking to South Africa, Botswana, America and the UK for new audiences and new fans.

The crowd-pulling musician said relocating elsewhere would help widen her horizons.

Confident about her success story, Sibanda said she stood head and shoulders above the rest in the local music industry.

“I want competition, respect and encouragement from my peers and other people, but unfortunately I feel short-changed in this regard,” she said in a telephone interview.

Sibanda, who can dance and sing any type of song with ease, said artists in her circumstances did not get due respect from local fans and also expressed concern at what she described as jealous women dancers who wished her bad luck in the industry.

“Instead of expending energies on cheap gossip, as musicians we should cheer each other on as we scale greater heights,” she said.

She’s currently working on a musical project and holding joint shows in Zimbabwe with popular South Africa musician Freddie Gwala.
