Kutsime kwakabva pfuma kwakange kwaripwa here coz 32 to have managed to entertain depression is no easy buy for me.This is the moment he should have been enjoying life and . Owning a record label meant mixing and mingling with tthe who's who from all walks of life.If he had personal problems these were the very people who could have offered advice.If the money came from the underground IMF then problem.It has set and strict conditions attached to it.Its equally stressing to make money from the underworld knowing very well that say next year or 3 years later you will be a Deadman.Especially the last year will be horrific

Kade wenzani loGenius.Ginimbi died a horrible if not pathetic death for a man of his calibre.Fame and fortune are the devil's trap for the lazy.If you work for the devil u won't get paid.its deception,manipulation and destruction.
