HARARE – Barely a month after ending her marriage to Leeroy “DJ Staera” Pasi, Zimbabwe’s self-proclaimed dancehall queen Sandra “Lady Squanda” Gazi has lurched into another love affair.
The Bronco neChapomba singer used Whatsapp to announce to the world her new-found love she only identified as TJ.
“I really love you TJ just trust me. Ndinokuda zvisingaite (I really love you), said the fiery musician on her whatsapp status.
Squanda, who took her ceaseless bizarre antics to a new low recently when she faked her own death in an attempt to promote an upcoming song, was evasive when the Weekend Post sought her comment.
“Will let you know soon, there is something going on,” was all she could say.
The 21-year-old artiste, however, had no qualms confirming that ex-hubby DJ Staera, who accused her of loose morals, was now history.
“It is over with Staera and I am moving on with life,” said the 21-year-old mother of one.
The supersonic speed at which Squanda appears to have landed a new love will not surprise those accustomed to her weird life-style.
As if controversy and intrigue are her second nature, hardly a week passes by without the Chitungwiza-based being embroiled in some form of scandal.
Recently, she was accused of stealing a song by a Bulawayo dancehall artiste hardly six months after she allegedly failed to deliver mobile phones entrusted to her during a tour to the United Kingdom by Zimbabweans based in that country.
Instead of handing over the phones to the relatives of the diasporans, Lady Squanda reportedly became rude when she was asked what had become of the smart phones.
The 21-year-old had the cheek to denigrate the diasporans who had sent her text messages: “Muri matsaga, murikundiitira papazi (You are all stupid).”
In another disparaging text she said, “Une dzungu (You are crazy).”
Ever controversial, Lady Squanda disappeared from the stage in a huff while performing at Super Label Nite Club in the capital city.
Though she later made an apology to the show organiser Biggie Chinoperekwei, that antic reinforced the belief in dancehall circles on her volatile character.
Despite her unpredictable character, the young dancehall artiste who was raised by her maternal grandmother following the death of her mother when she was five years old, she remains fairly popular in the country and among Zimbabweans in the diaspora.
Lady Squanda has shared the stage with a number of top international artistes including Jamaican dancehall star Capleton who now prefers to be called King Shango.
“During this year’s festive season she will be in Cape Town, South Africa where a number of gigs have been lined up for her in the popular Mother City.”
