Sele misses Dhewa
© POPULAR socialite Monica “Sele” Chikasha says she misses the late sungura musician Tongai Moyo and that showbiz is no longer the same without him.
Known for her full figure and twerking which made her famous at the late Dhewa’s shows, Monica said she is still around but lying low.
She said these days she prefers staying home than frequenting musical shows as she used to do back then.
Monica was celebrating the New Year at Jongwe Corner where sungura music giant Alick Macheso staged a family show together with songstress Selmor Mtukudzi.
The term “Sele” became a popular dance routine during Dhewa’s days that it was even included in some of his songs. Up to now the term is popular with rhumba dances.
At the time women would get on stage showcasing their dancing skills, shaking their rears much to the delight of men who frequented shows.
“I miss Tongai. He was and is the best and showbiz is no longer the same. These days I prefer staying at home,” she said.
She said she cannot abandon Peter as he is the heir to the late Tongai’s music legacy and will continue supporting his act.
“I will support in as far as I can. On December 31 I was at Peter’s show, hatingarase mwana watakasiirwa,” she said.
Monica is among the late Dhewa’s list of loyal fans that would not miss his shows.
