Dancehall Chanter Gwendem pens a song for Gender Based Violence

Choose to live, by choosing to leave. “If it disturbs your peace. It is not working out. If it ruins your happiness, character, behavior, reputation and drains your energy. If it gives you pain, wounds, sorrow, heartbreak, headache, stress, grief, sleepless nights and discomfort” – De Philosopher DJ Kyos

Armed with creative lyrics, a charismatic personality, smooth voice, street cred and undeniable mystique and energy that drive his fans crazy it is unquestionable that the 16 year old Dancehall Chanter Gwendem is one of the best upcoming artists to look out for.

With countless singles to his name the younger is back again with another song and video titled “Kushungurudza”. In an interview with Lifestyle Magazine Zw Gwendem said “Most of my music is social commentary, I sing about real life issues things that I see in our community, at school and some of the stuff that happen in my own life, so on Kushungurudza I was just singing about something that happened in our neighbourhood”

“Gender based violence cases are on the rise and I believe everyone not just artists we should come together and rise awareness about Gender Based Violence because GBV also affects the children ” Gwendem added. According to UNFPA, in Zimbabwe about 1 in 3 women aged 15 to 49 have experienced physical violence and about 1 in 4 women have experienced sexual violence since the age of 15.
