Former Studio 263 actress Anne Nhira has launched her own talk show, Masuwo with Anne Nhira, just weeks after playing a pivotal role in getting South African dancer Zodwa Wabantu banned from performing at the Harare International Carnival. The show is broadcast on the Facebook pages ZimdiTv and Masuwo with Anne Nhira every Tuesday at 4 PM.
