Mukundu reveals that in 1990, while he was a member of the Crocodile Rockers Gang based at Tsvingwe Bar in Penhalonga, he had the first sexual encounter of his life with a prostitute called Maria Berzek.
Mukundu who now owns Monolio Studios claims he got a sexually transmitted infection.
Mukundu writes that he decided to stop sleeping with prostitutes after a similar experience in Mutare.
When he started music, he neither drank alcohol nor smoked but started consuming alcohol when he was with Crocodiles Rockers Gang.
He became known for over-drinking when they were based in Mutare and always fought with their promoter, whom he accuses of mistreating them.
Mukundu only gave up drinking when he joined EGEA Gospel Train and Evangelist Admire Kasi encouraged him to give his life to Jesus.
He said that Kasi was abusive and that he was always reminded of a Christian doctrine of “living by faith” every time they complained about their pay.
Mukundu also indicated that in 1991 the Crocodile Rockers Gang clashed with Pied Pipers over gate-takings in Dzivaresekwa.
