AKA’s South African Fans Call Him Out 
AKA and his big mouth are at it again! South African rapper AKA was in Lagos for a couple of days as he attended different events like the One Mic Naija and also made a few radio stops promoting his album.
While the 27-year-old rapper had quite an exciting experience in Nigeria, his South African fans are not too pleased with him after he let out his frustration about the media, feeling unappreciated and more via his Twitter account.

New Miss World Zimbabwe 2015 Crowned

Emily Tatanga Kachote Crowned Miss World Zimbabwe

After a four hour-ceremony, which by the way looked organised, Hararean, Emily Tatanga Kachote was crowned Miss World Zimbabwe 2015.



The colourful event was held on Saturday 25 April at the lush Mermaid Pools in Shamva with a string of performances from urban-groover Trevor Dongo, gospel hip hop artist Mudiwa Hood, legendary, Leonard Karikoga Zhakata and many more.

The ICT Minister, honorable Supa Mandiwanzira was present and gave a commendable speech.

Annie-Grace Mutambu was crowned first princess and Chengetai Kanonhuwa second Princess, while Anissa Ndiriwani took the Miss Talent title and Vanessa Mutemasango was named Miss Personality.

Congratulations to all the ladies and well done to the organisers of the pageant for what viewers from home called a 'splendid' setup and show.

Why Is Everybody On Emily Kachote's Case?

Miss World Zimbabwe Gets Backlash



Over the past weekend, Zimbabweans witnessed the crowning of their new reigning pageant queen,Miss World Zimbabwe 2015, Emily  Tatanga Kachote and well guess they weren't too impressed...


Moments after her coronation as the queen, Emily Tatanga Kachote attracted so much debate on social media with other sections disapproving of her.
She has been deemed for lack of a better word, "ugly". The 25 year old financial advisor has had insults dished at her left, right and center, not to mention the amount of comparisons made to other 'queens' from across the continent.
Strangely Emily is no stranger to the pageant front, as the 1.73 m beauty queen was Miss Harare in 2011.
The big question is why is everybody on Emily Kachote's case?
She did fairly well, and if ugliness is judged by virtue that one id not a yellow-bone or red bone, then shame on Zimbabwe and the independence that our 'black' fathers fought for. For the longest…

Guy Does A Beyonce Medley In Four Minutes

Beyonce's Five Albums in Four Minutes: See Todrick Hall's Flawless Medley

Yes, all hail Queen Bey! It's true, Beyonce commands something far greater than most musicians of our age...the power to influence!

Broadway actor and American Idol alum, Todrick Hall does a pretty flawless job at containing Beyonce's entire catalog in just four minutes.

Todrick has become famous for his viral YouTube videos, and "4 Beyonce" in which he condenses all five of Queen Bey's albums into four minutes using four recordings of himself.

We swear the Beyhive and all Beyonce would be so proud, watch the major medley here:




Telecel Zimbabwe Licence Cancelled

Telecel Zimbabwe Licence Cancelled

Telecel Zimbabwe has been notified by the Postal and Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of Zimbabwe (POTRAZ) of the cancellation of its licence to provide national cellular telecommunications services.

This measure is unfair and unwarranted. Telecel has made every effort to comply with all legal and governmental requirements in Zimbabwe, and objects to this treatment in the strongest terms.
Telecel and its global shareholders are taking immediate action both locally and internationally to challenge this decision.

Telecel would like to assure its customers and stakeholders that it will take all possible steps to maintain the full range of its services throughout this process.

We thank all our valued customers and partners for their on-going support. Your welfare is of the utmost importance and priority to us and we will continue to act in the interests of Zimbabwe and its people.

KUNZWANA # 1 A musical journey and trans-cultural collaboration  between Austria and Zimbabwe

The tour starts with a visit by the Austrian musicians to the group Simonga from the remote village of Siachilaba deep in the Zambezi Valley, a vivid encounter with the traditional Ngoma Buntibe musical art form / Tonkunst / of the Tonga people, highlighted as a source of inspiration.

At the end of April the Austrian trio and the Zimbabwean quartet of musicians will mee…

Throwback Thursday: HIFA 2014

Throwback Thursday: HIFA 2014

As we are covering the Harare International Festival Of The Arts, we decided to take a walk down memory lane to the experiences of artists from yesteryear. 

Vokal Da Poet



So Groove had the amazing opportunity of talking to Vokal Da poet a vocally distinct poet who took us on a journey and a HIFA experience.

GM:Tell us about yourself and Poetry?

Vokal: My name is Christopher S. Chiwanza.I have been writing poetry for the longest time. Since '99/2000 when I had fantasies of writing an anthology. Around 2005 I stopped to pursue other artist endeavors. It was only in 2009 that I started writing again. In 2010 I did Chimanimani Arts Festival as a poet only because Walter Muparutsa needed an opener for the event and he knew me from other encounters. Then Hector Mugani saw it fit to encourage me to pursue it. But it wasn't until the next year that I made my Open Mic debut at the Book Café.

GM:You just did one of the biggest festivals in Zimbabwe can you tell …

Zimbabwe Fashion International Sets The Record Straight

Zimbabwe Fashion International Sets The Record Straight

Zimbabwe Fashion International regrets to announce that it has become a victim of an unwarranted malicious act of slander and defamation by one of its disgruntled former services providers from South Africa, specifically Group of Creatives (“GC”), an events management start-up, founded by Jen Deiner, the wife of a fashion photographer, Simon Deiner.

ZFI has considered the legal options available to it in light of this ugly and dishonorable attack, but we have decided that to expend time and funds to punish GC will be an inefficient investment of our resources, and that the people who care about the industry and about general fairness will be able to see through the ugly fabric of false accusations if we set the record straight:

ZFI was established six years ago as a platform for the revival and development of the fashion industry in Zimbabwe. It has produced a world- class fashion event rated as one of the most successful fashion…

Tina Knowles Wedding Pictures

Beyonce shares pics of her mother Tina Knowles wedding


Beyoncé looks amazing in pics she just shared on her website from the yacht wedding of her mother, Tina Knowles, in Newport Beach, California on April 12. Tina, 61, revealed that it was her granddaughter Blue who convinced her to get married a second time. The little girl asked Tina and Richard when they were going to tie the knot during a vacation with Beyonce and Jay Z last September. Richard said, 'Oh, Blue, soon. Do you approve?' And she said yes. That's the first time we talked seriously about getting married.' Tina told the publication. Tina had been dating Richard, 68, for about 18 months before their all-white wedding on a yacht. The couple had known each other for more than 30 years, however. She divorced from Beyonce and Solange's father Mathew back in 2011.

JAY Z looked like a proud papa as he sat next to Blue Ivy, who looked ever so cute in a Tiara as she sat next to her ten-year-old cousin Daniel, …
