NADINE Stoddart, the late Andy Brown’s widow, intends to woo her husband’s ex-wife Chiwoniso Maraire for a duet.
REPORT BY SILENCE CHARUMBIRA ENTERTAINMENT REPORTER
Nadine opened up last week and said: “I would love to do a song with Chiwoniso. I have not yet spoken to her about it, but we are constantly in touch. I feel we really need to work together.”
This comes as a shocking development after rumours of a tense relationship between the two.
Contacted for comment, Chiwoniso’s manager Tsungi Zvobgo said it was possible for the two to work together.
“It is possible that they can work together. We don’t have anything to say about her intentions since we have not discussed it,” she said.
“It is actually strange that she says that to the media when she has not said anything like that to us.”
At first, Chiwoniso appeared not to even know Nadine.
“Who is Nadine?” she was quick to ask before this writer explained further.
“Oh that Nadine . . . At the moment I don’t have anything to say. When she calls me I will have a comment.”
Chiwoniso has for over a year been close to the goings-on in the Brown family even before the death of her estranged husband on March 15 this year.
Before Brown’s death, the two reunited on stage and performed together on a number of occasions, triggering speculation of their reconciliation.
They both dispelled the rumour and claimed it was strictly business and nothing to do with matters of the heart.
In recent months, Chiwoniso has been staging shows with Ammara, Brown’s second daughter.
At the end of the month they will share the stage, accompanied by Andy’s sister Sandra Mashiringo aka Queen Mashie, at the Women in Jazz Festival scheduled for November 30 to December 2.
