From Teacher to Prominence
DJ Masomere’s journey to fame includes his tenure as a teacher at Ndarama High School in Masvingo. However, it was his active role as a Master of Ceremony at various Zanu PF rallies that propelled him into the spotlight. His high-energy performances and memorable catchphrases, like “Jah Prayzah Zvakwana,” earned him recognition and popularity among party supporters.
Legal Dispute Over Unpaid Debt
In a surprising twist, DJ Masomere became embroiled in a legal battle over an unpaid debt related to a Public Address (PA) system and audio equipment he had rented for multiple high-profile Zanu PF events. The equipment was leased from Meldwin-Tech Investments, a company owned by Simbarashe Edwin Mupakamiso. DJ Masomere had rented the PA system for 11 rallies but allegedly failed to settle the full payment.
In his defense, DJ Masomere contended that he shouldn’t be held liable for the debt due to Mupakamiso’s affiliation with Zanu PF. He suggested that both he and Mupakamiso had anticipated future appreciation from the party, making the debt a gesture of gratitude. However, the court ultimately ruled in favor of Meldwin-Tech Investments, ordering DJ Masomere to pay the outstanding debt of US$1,080 plus interest.
A Generous Gift from Sir Wicknell Chivayo
In a surprising turn of events, DJ Masomere received an extraordinary gift from businessman Sir Wicknell Chivayo. Sir Wicknell donated a brand-new Toyota Hilux double cab 4×4 vehicle worth US$65,000 to DJ Masomere as a token of appreciation for his unwavering support of President Emmerson Mnangagwa and the ruling Zanu PF party. This generous gesture provided DJ Masomere with a significant turnaround in his circumstances.
Meeting President Mnangagwa
DJ Masomere had the privilege of meeting President Emmerson Mnangagwa, during which he and his family expressed their gratitude for the various gifts received from the President and other benefactors. Among the gifts were 400 liters of diesel, a tractor, a sugarcane farm from President Mnangagwa himself, a Toyota GD6, and a house from Sir Wicknell Chivhayo, as well as livestock and shares from other individuals. As a token of appreciation, DJ Masomere presented President Mnangagwa with a lion statue symbolizing strength and courage.
The legal dispute over the unpaid debt and the subsequent generous gift from Sir Wicknell Chivayo sparked discussions within the local community. While some voiced support for the DJ, citing his involvement in political rallies, others emphasized the importance of impartiality in business transactions.
