31 December 2018
THE countdown into 2019 having begun, 2018 will best be remembered as an eventful year.
Despite all the challenges we faced in 2018, people are still hopeful that 2019 will be a better year.
A number of celebrities interviewed by H-Metro opened up on their resolutions and hopes. Read on…
Partson “Chipaz” Chimbodza (music promoter/entrepreneur) – We are back into music promotions with our motto to identify talent and nurture the talent.
We hope to build as many big artistes as possible like before and above all to bring professionalism into the industry
We also hope to create new concepts which are themed just like our Shut Down, Big 5, Harare Cup Clash, Chipaz Bhora Sting etcetera.
Spencer Madziya (socialite/music promoter/entrepreneur) – In the new season, my resolution is more on personally growing my business brands.
The year 2018 taught us resilience both as business people and parents and in 2019 it will be hard work and lots of fun with our loved ones!
David Ngwerume (lawyer/sculptor) -Let’s go into 2019 stronger our victory is certain.
Thomas “CST” Chizhanje (socialite) – My new year’s resolution is to look for more ways of influencing our nation in positive ways on social media.
As you know our group Thomas Chizhanje and Friends won the Social media award as the Best Facebook Group in 2018.
The group is turning nine months and has over 100 000 members. We are currently running a programme on buying sunscreen lotions for children leaving with albinism.
In 2019 we are going to be doing more of suction initiatives and also making people laugh and giving our group members latest news in and out of Zimbabwe.
We are also going to be doing adverts for corporates and individuals.
I would like to wish every member of Thomas Chizhanje and friends a very prosperous 2019.
Enisia Mashusha (actress/theatre director/film-maker) – I consider taking a more active role in my efforts to change people’s lives.
I look at what has been in my way, examine them and then apply the action.
Pitshou (musician) – What I can say about 2018 is it was a very good year for us as a rhumba band.
“We thank our patrons who were there for us, and also we thank our Living Legend Dr Oliver MTukudzi for accepting us for doing a collaboration with us for the song Bhutsu which is doing very well on our local radio stations and abroad.
On Monday 31st December we are going to be at Solomon Café Chisa Nyama in Glenview along Willowvale at Highglen junction.
All the best rhumba bands in Zimbabwe comprising Bv Labien Musica, Madiz, Lady Storm, and Diamond Musica Dis is Good will be performing under one roof.
As for our resolutions, we want to continue giving fans good music.
Josh Hozheri (music promoter/businessman)- I will focus on nurturing young talent.
I will also concentrate on out of club gigs and be able to measure growth of individual young artistes.
AGGA Nyabinde (musician) – I am looking forward to a prosperous 2019.
My resolution is to widen our fan base to other towns around Zimbabwe.
We have received great support from people in Harare but we have done little effort to reach out to other towns around the country. I hope in 2019 this wish will become a reality.
Joey Nyikadzino (actress/beautician/script writer) – As an actress like I promised earlier on, the year 2019 is going to be a great year for me as I will be writing and producing African movies as well as recruiting actors and actresses who aren’t established yet. I want to bring new faces to the screen.
As an entrepreneur, I want to grow and spread wings. I have more business ideas lined up for this year. It’s promising yes and I am ready to grow. That’s the year I will introduce my brand, Joey’s beauty products. I am so excited.
I plan to tour again in some other countries like Nigeria just to experience the film feeling and learn a lot too.
As a beautician I promise all my clients new things. New year new looks. I will be opening some new joints as well so I can meet all clients demand. I will be opening a beauty school too for those who have a passion in beauty..
Wanisayi “Mahwindo”Mutandwa – 2019 its going to be work, work and family.
I am going to take my promotions duties very seriously as well as launching Mama Mahwindo foundation.
In 2018, I entertained people who don’t appreciate so in 2019 my daughter is going to be my best friend and my love.
Our arts industry is not going to be the same again in 2019.
Nyasha Dope (socialite entrepreneur) – On this new year, may you change your direction and not dates, change your commitments and not the Calendar, change your attitude and not the actions, and bring about a change in your faith, your force and your focus and not the fruit.
May you live up to the promises you have made and may you create for you and your loved ones.
Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. remember not to drink and drive. Happy New Year to everyone love you all.
Andy Kays (wheel-spinner) – My new year’s resolution goes like this:
As you know, we have a brand (Dream team Entertainment) that I feel needs to be pushed more than the previous year and hopefully we can reach out to more towns and cities of Zimbabwe
I wish to open other avenues that will generate me more income as you know our country now relies on informal sector and probably stop drinking beer for good.
Peter Moyo (musician) – In 2019, I need to upgrade my PA System and hold more of international shows and probably will manage to finish building my house in Harare.
Romeo Gasa (musician) – I am aiming to take sungura international next year and do great videos and international tours.
Pastor Hazvinei Muchefa – As RECFEMI Ministries pastor ,I would like to say 2018 is going to end on good note despite whatever the country is facing and going to 2019 I would like to wish my fellow Zimbabweans a blessed year full of happiness, good health, joy, success and prosperity.
In 2018 we saw the hand of God delivering many people from different problem, miracles happened.
God of yesterday, today and forever will continue doing great things in people’s lives in 2019 as well as for our nation Zimbabwe.
I would also want to urge people to pray for the nation.
