Chingaira, who released her debut album “Zvinodakushinga” last week, called on musicians to take advantage of dancehall’s popularity to spread constructive and nation building messages.

“Dancehall is music of the moment and should be used as a vehicle of communication,” she said. Besides providing educative, informative and entertaining songs, Chingaira said music should encourage the nation to be resilient in the face of ongoing hardships.

Her first album is made up of mainly love songs as she does not believe in polarisation and hatred. Her music appeals to all age groups.

She took up professional music in 2011. “Music is in my life and was not inspired by anyone, though I now draw inspiration from artists such as Jah Love, Killer T and the late Chiwoniso Maraire among others,” she said.

Chingaira called on government, corporate world and individuals to support the music industry. The last born in a family of four paid tribute to her parents, who she said were supportive of her career.
