Munodawafa deserts matrimonial home

POPULAR gospel musician and keyboard wizard Munyaradzi Munodawafa has dumped his wife of five years. The musician was initially allegedly caught red-handed in bed with his girlfriend.

Report by Jairos Saunyama

Munodawafa’s wife Fellistas Shumba said she found him  with the girl in bed in their matrimonial home in Masvingo. According to Shumba, the girl is in her early 20s.

After being confronted, Munodawafa fled with his girlfriend from his lodgings in Runyararo West.

Shumba said the two are currently staying in an area known as Sisk.
The partially blind musician sired a two-year-old daughter with Shumba.

However, the 24-year-old musician also has an older daughter with another woman.

Shumba emotionally told NewsDay about Munodawafa’s alleged infidelity.

“I was coming from Harare when I found my husband in bed with another woman.

“I had heard rumours in the neighbourhood about this girl until I caught them red-handed. I don’t know what I did
to him that has led to this incident. I can’t believe this,” she said.

Munodawafa could neither confirm nor deny the incident, but said he is in love with the girl involved in the issue.

“The girl is my fiancée.  I am no longer in love with Fellistas. We separated some time ago and she is trying is to tarnish my image.
“I left her after I found out that she was having an affair with another man,” said Munodawafa.


“I told her that I was going to alert our parents, but she discouraged me against it and went to her parents’ home in Harare.
“After some time, she started nagging me asking to be allowed to come back until she came and caused havoc.”

Munodawafa was born in 1988 and many will remember him as the young boy who mesmerised gospel music fans with his keyboard playing skills and his hit song Shandisa Chipo Chako at live shows.

He released his first album Mwari Anoona in 1998 at the age of 10. Munyaradzi went to the United States in 1999 where he spent some years before returning to Zimbabwe in 2005.

He released Farai Munashe in 2006 before he disappeared from the music scene.

Munodawafa made a return in 2010 with the album Zvinouraya, which received commendable airplay on local radio stations.

    1. guys tarisai pple want to take advantage of the young man mukadzi wake was not faithful sakamaida kuti aitewo sei nhai, kuita mwana wa Mwari hazvireve kuti pple shuld take advantage of yu

      1. this young man already has a kid with another woman, what does this means, he divorced the woman, but trying to falsely accused his legitimate current wife of infidelity. shame on him. God should punish him,just look at his age.

  7. all unfaithful men will put the blame on the wife if they are caught.
    shame on you munyaradzi. you have forgotten where you came from

    1. Why do people always sympathies with women before they get the other side of the story. Women are unmarriageable these days, men who are already married regret why they have done it, those who are divorced feel that they are hero and survivors and vow will never repeat it again. Young men are scared to death the prospect of getting married, why?. The reason is that women have turned monsters/zvikerema zvanhu , either a woman is bully, her relatives terrorizing you, cheating, can’t cook for you, telling you off and so forth. I suggest a change in marriage laws, for example marriage agreements must be phased i.e the first phase must end in five years, the second ten years and the last one to be indefinite. At each phase each part evaluates the relationship and decide whether to continue or not. Indefinate marriages are a punishment to those who at least tried to get married. Marriages must be attractive institutions not imprisonments. Why women are terrorising men, and why are we still being asked to pay lobola when everyone knows that parties to marriage agreement are equal. Some people suggest paying lobola is a thank you to your in -laws, i buy this but i think it must be paid in the second year of the marriage not at the beginning.This will allow you to decide whether you like to thank your in-laws or to curse them

    2. Munyaradzi unonyadzisa. Urikuzama kuvanda nechigumwe. Vakadzi havaperi asi iwe uchapera sesipo manje manje. Only uncultured people can do that. Seek for forgiveness.

  18. I do not mean to sound judgemental, may the Lord help me I am being a hypocrite but I think Munyaradzi has not really started with these women to show the contempt that he may have for other people. I remember when the guy came back from the US. One of the first things that he said on national television while being interviewed was that he needed nobody to help him. Really? I am ASSUMING that it is that same vein of pride that now empowers him to hop from one woman to another. If he has been hurt by the current wife, I sympathise but that does not excuse him from doing the noble thing. Why not just divorce rather than have your name be soiled like this? I am in now way supporting divorce because the Lord hates it, but infidelity is the one excuse that the Lord that he sings about may approve of.

  20. WILLARD MUBVUMBI

    HIS WIFE TOOK AN UNFAIR ADVANTAGE OF HIS PARTIAL BLINDNESS TO INDULGE IN ILLICIT SEX. The youngman is right.

  21. Uuuuuu I saw this young man growing up and where on earth did he learn all this bed hopping? Munya many people have gone before the Lord as a result of such actions as yours. God is there for you brother. This will too tarnish or even end your career!

  22. Apa Munyaradz being a public figure apinda busy, asi mazvokuda mavanga enyora. Kana Munya ari serious that his wife had an affair , akadii kuenda to the in-laws and present his issue ,and be cleared, apa it shows anga asina kuramba mukadzi wake,
    murambeka wotanga zvimwe. usati wapedzerana nemukadzi watove negirlfriend kare. it means munya wagara anewo affair. Imi munhu kana ukarwadziswa when your other half cheats on you, it takes time for you to be in a relationship. uye you sette nyaya nehama dzeboth sides to avoid conflicts and such accusatuons.,
    sorry to judge but yourself first Munya, Inga dai takanzwa kare kuti wakarambana nemukadzi mumapaper umu
    manners maketh a man

  23. Zvinokatyamadza macomments evamwe vanhu and it show there are still behind whaen they ask why this guy has to sleep with his fiancee before marrying her. Cnave chimanje manje zvekutanga waroora izvi ndezve stone age. The boy has to be very careful mazuva ano kuneAIDS and Masvingo is one of the areas where it is prevalent.

  24. A lot of these zealous born agains are regrettably, GOATS! Some of their male leaders just use their churches and power to pound on innocent girls and gullible married women. I know of a brother to a prophet of a once floushing pentecostal church, who particularly specialised in targetting virgin girls attracted to the church, for a first encounter. Fortunately the fortunes of that church have dramatically changed since 2000, diminishing opportunities for this goat to offend. The head of the church miscalculated and publicly sided with Mr Mugabe and Jonathan Moyo’s land invasion program.
