13 March 2021 Update on the Funeral Assistance and Contributions to the Nhira Family Dearly Beloveds
It has been brought to our attention by the way of numerous requests from most of Anne’s friends , colleagues, business partners and scores of her fans as well as well-wishers both in Zimbabwe and around the world to offer assistance and pay tribute to their icon. The family has decided to allow those whose desire is to do so and the family greatly appreciates this a lot.
The family has been made aware also that certain individuals are soliciting and setting up funding structures in the name of Anne and would like to categorically states that no one has been given a mandate to set up any of that except the official platforms attached herein this release. We strongly advice these individuals to stop this and respect the memory of our beloved sister.
Furthermore we would like to extend insight into the dreams and visions of our late icon Anne Vimbisai Nhira towards which any excess funds beyond the funeral shall be channelled to:
- Anne was deeply hurt by how talented artists live their lives to entertain but at the end of their lives they remain with nothing to show for their efforts and sometimes cant afford a decent lifestyle. A trust Fund to assist artists to become in all spheres of life would go a long way
- Anne had a vision of a World Class Music Studio initially due to the amazing talent displayed by her 5 brothers who supported her greatly throughout her life
- Anne had an enormous desire for talent management which included modelling, acting and music
- She was an entertainer and she hoped to produce high quality movies which would be watched on the world’s most popular platforms
- A fashion brand of beauty products and clothing.
The family has agreed to follow through these visions coupled with the already existing talent to present a platform that will continue to inspire and motivate young talented youth to reach their dreams Below are the official accounts to be used for this purpose.
