  1. Iconic celebrities quite sad our dispensation have less honour for its talented citizens. yet economies flourish on this art industry which has been left to the dustbins almost…..how the systems alienates talent is quite alarming. Probably its time not only Zimbabwean but African dispensations should understudy developed nations ….how these celebrities across all sectors should be natured, excell and multiply in the life of their nations.

    1. True @godfrey chikowore, very sad how our system just turns a blind eye as they gainfully gobble up the tax payers money at the expense of the future of our country and africa
