SONGBIRD Prudence Katomeni Mbofana says she is in love with her new job as an instructor at the Music Crossroads Academy.

She also revealed that she has also been busy raising her last two boys.

She told H-Metro:

“I did not retire from the stage.

“I recently joined Music Crossroads Academy thinking it was going to be a very temporary thing because of what I was going through in my life at that time, which was to bring up the last two boys in our family because they were young.

“The helper that was there, when I was able to perform, is no longer there.

“So, I had to find something that grounds me and that was the Music Crossroads Academy project.”

She said she easily gelled with others at her workplace.

“When I got there, I met the guys who were developing this curriculum, they finally took me on board and asked me to develop it together with them.

“I was going around Africa training music teachers in our various countries. Whenever options arose, I had performances out there.

“It is just a pity that I did not put much emphasis on marketing those performances.”

She said her focus was on the Academy.

“So, I am trying, I am coming back but my heart is with this academy.

“Whether the students become teachers locally or internationally, or to go on to perform stage, it’s up to them but that is what I have been doing quietly.

“I am not a person who wants to make a lot of noise,” she said.

She dismissed speculation her husband, Comfort Mbofana, who is the Zimpapers Radio boss, had barred her from live performances.

“Nobody has asked or forced me to quit the on stage, I actually miss being on the stage.”
