Despite local recognition, Ti Gonzi expressed discontent with the lack of global acknowledgment for Zimbabwean music, motivating his decision to shift focus towards nurturing emerging talents.

Reflecting on his journey, Ti Gonzi emphasized the hardships he faced, highlighting the challenges of securing airplay on radio, finding promoters, and earning a sustainable income from music.

He said the “malfunction” in the Zimbabwean music industry is one reason he is leaving his career.

The Zvenyu hitmaker was blunt:

“I’m a hip-hop artist with the biggest award in the country. I am an artist with number-one hit songs. If you look at Kure, 2019, it was the song of the year. Ndinei guys? What do I have? Chii chandakawana from Kure? Do you think Jah prayzah, as a Zimbabwean musician, is at the level he should be if you’re comparing him with other guys like Diamond Platnumz from Tanzania and Cassper Nyovest from SA? Do you think their pockets match?

“Jah Prayzah, Tocky Vibes, Killer T or Freeman, are all over. Do you think these four can match celebrated South African artists? Zimbabweans are talented. We have ana Takura. The [music] industry is malfunctions. Ngatisatombo tenderera nyaya iyoyo.”
