Sometimes in life you don’t need a prophet or a fortune teller to know your future or what your life might be tomorrow ,what you do most of the times determines the moments yet to come .It all begins with love.My early twenties I met Flower ,she was beautiful amazing and everything I wanted. We connected the first time and there was no doubt I wanted to marry her . The bond, the madness , the joy was inexplicable everything was more than the cinema love .
Cutting the story short , this love turned sour and I was left heart broken at the end .She left me for another but because of the connection between us it wasn’t easy to let go .I tried getting her pregnant for several years but wasn’t successful ,thought to myself maybe I don’t have a functional system . In pursuit to look for someone who can give me a baby I met my wife . Of cause I didn’t want to get someone pregnant and dump her so hed to find somone good for me as well . Flower got engaged to this other rich guy and she told me to move on , of wich this time I tried to do so .Flower left me financially unstable .By then I head 2 loans and my net was 70$ .I was getting peanuts needed rent ($50) and electricity bill ($10) since my country Zimbabwe is using multi currency only Bond notes are available but on black market .If you have money in your account you are charged 20% or 15% to get cash at the black market because at banks there is no cash at all . This was a tough journey for me surviving with no food at all .
Before my girlfriend got to be my wife (Beuty) I also hed another side chick ,Tamia ,and she was rich .Tamia loved me beyond reasonable expectation but i ddnt love her the same . She was a single parent and desperately in need of a companion . She was a good woman I may say but I took advantage of her pocket and she bought groceries and payed my bills .Despite Tamia ‘s help , I gambled at chess nearly everyday and would get little monies for food and carter for my main love. Around November 2018 Beauty was pregnant and there was no point for me to hide the news from Tamia. She was heartbroken but she never stopped loving me it’s only her pocket that was now distancing itself from me .I was happy that I was going to be a dad and I told my Ex Flower , she was happy for me too and that time there was no longer bad blood between us .
Becoming a dad , or let me say a broke dad wasn’t going to be easy but I told my wife Beauty that everything was going to be fine .Before she came to stay with me, Tamia sponsored me to record my first second and third tracks . It happens that I am a musician too something I head left 6 years ago .In February 2018 one of my loan expired and my finances were getting in shape . I sacrificed to leave Tamia and focus on my new family . I enjoyed every single day with my wife , her nagging and cravings drove me insane in a good way though .By then chess started paying me lots of money per week or I may say say everyday . So I thought to myself if I shoot a video for one of my songs try to go international it was going to be life changing moment (until now I haven’t released any of my songs for air play ). During those days around March I started paying my work mates to work for me or cover my duties so that j focus full time on music and chess .unfortunately chess started declining in terms of payment and I was forced to take a loan , it wasn’t an emergency at all but thought if i could get $1000 it will cover video expenses and other . One of my chess friend Munashe owns a Media company , approached him to do a video . Number one mistake I did was saving money and paying somone who isn’t experienced in the category of music that I do. Since I wanted a simple video there was no need for me to approach the expensive directors in my local area. Since chess was no longer paying my loan was now paying my workmates and that’s were I also failed . I got relaxed and thought music was going to be my saviour .After shooting 65% of the video was okie the rest was a disaster since Munashe failed to direct well some of the scenes. Most of the blame goes to the electricity that blacked out and we had to use a small generator that wasn’t compatible with the lighting that was required .
I had to do a reshoot but since my finances had ran out again I was careless but at that time it didn’t matter at all wanted to finish the job .I took another at a different company called Credfin $1000, this time the loan wasn’t only for the video but for my wife who was due anytime month of July. So was ready to pay for hospital expenses.
My wife gave birth safely and I may say I didn’t even pay a single dime since The President was covering all bills for women in labour at government hospitals . It’s easy spending money than making money , within a blink of an eye I ran out of money around August and I didn’t even pursue the reshoot. THE circle repeated again and again of borrowing money from money Landers until my payslip was exhausted and reality began . I got into debts with an aim of elevating my talent but instead I wasn’t financially disciplined , I don’t drink alcohol or a womanizer that spends money with girlfriends at hotels but since my salary was now little my loans were now acting like my salary buying food ,clothes for my wife and my bouncing baby boy .honestly i lost my game at a critical moment and I was blind enough not able to see the conciquences that lied ahead. It’s now this month that I have awakened and seen that my next salary will be negative. I am ashamed , embarrassed and regretting .if you can help me with an amount of $5000us dollars to clear my loans I can start a new life with better planing . My net salary is $629 (bond notes) i am below poverty datum line but i can survive and appreciate that little now . Tried getting help from my bank but since I have loan there they advised me to clear first some of my debts and maybe they can help , but how can I do that if I head assets like a car am sure that worries would have been over my now .I attach my payslip and pray that my request maybe answered . I am multi talented and I believe that I can change my community , be of great influence and mentor to the youths and even the great minds .A lesson learnt the hard way.
