Pauline feels forever young

Former Mafriq lead vocalist Pauline Gundidza says she feels younger even though she turned 31.

Pauline was speaking to Showbiz on the sidelines of her birthday celebrations at the Volt in Harare.

“I have embraced my age and am happy to be 31; I feel young and energetic, but at the same time I want to be more mature in my career and personal decisions,” said Pauline.

The silky voiced songstress celebrated her birthday in style at the Volt last Friday and continued the party again at City Sports Bar on Monday when she performed at the Jam Session.

She held a glittering event that was graced by fellow artistes like Oskid, Tererai Mugwadi and Dereck Mpofu among others.

Mannex and Transit Crew were the main act and their performance was near flawless.

Reflecting on her music career, Pauline said she has been through a bumpy road but she has come out stronger and ready to conquer.

“I am currently putting together a live band to back me on stage. I feel like my old self really, it’s a great feeling to have a second chance to present myself to the world,” she said.

She also revealed that she was concentrating on widening her arts career.

“I am training in dance and performing arts with help from my mentor and friend Albert Nyathi who I have been working with in various community projects such as Zimbabwe Population Based HIV Impact Assessment (ZIMPHIA). We are doing roadshows nationwide for their door to door testing program,” she said.

Speaking on her love life, she said she had moved on after breaking up with ex-husband Rockford Josphats and was now dating an artiste simply known as Fuzzy.
