It was when I was grade 6 in 2002 when I discovered that I had a passion for music. What happened is that there was a Chirisa Band (Local Band) called Shanduko Brothers which came to play at our school whose rhythmist was a very young boy and I felt challenged,” narrated the now Harare based singer.

After feeling challenged, I had to make my own ‘Banjo’ for self-practises, and I had to join Shanduko Brothers for some lessons,” he continued.

Despite falling for music at a tender age, Boss Shinde MwanaGokwe managed to complete his ordinary level and then relocated to Bulawayo where he worked as a till operator before leaving for South Africa in 2010.

In 2012, the Gokwe Singer returned in the country where he worked at Pricable Farm in Kwekwe for three years.

In 2016, the singer rekindled his music passion after his young brother Leonard Manyika Kana linked him with his friends (Last Kazomba- Bassist and Peter Mutede- Lead Guitarist) who were at Denda Brothers (Somandla Ndebele’s Band) where his entry point was Doorman at Denda Brothers.

In 2018, Boss Shinde MwanaGokwe joined First Farai’s band where he worked as the Band Supervisor and gained more experience in the industry until April this year (2022).

During the Lockdown, “I recorded a single track called ‘Kuchema Kwangu’ which was a tribute to my parents and I am planning to add it on the Album I am about to release on the 23rd of July this year. The single already has a video which fans seemed to welcome very well,” he said.

Due to the passion for music as well as ambitions, the singer then created his own band this year called the ‘Earthquak Attack’ which he fronts.
