Tererai Mugwadi announced her resignation from the music industry on Tuesday the 9th of July. The announcement was made through her official Facebook page. Fans across Africa were caught off guard at the shocking revelation. The singer had earlier opened up about her 14-year-long battle with alcoholism.
She rose to fame in the early 2000s when she released her song Waenda in which she featured artists like Aexio Kawara, Sani Makhalima, and Maskiri.
In her post she revealed that she had failed in the industry and as a result, decided to quit altogether. They say “no publicity is bad publicity.” In her case, the media hasn’t done her career any Justice. In 2018 she was crucified when her sex tape went viral. In 2017 she was found guilty of culpable homicide charges after she was involved in an accident which claimed the life of Seremani Marvellous.
On her Facebook page she wrote:
“Music doesn’t love me anymore and quite possibly its that I’m doing something wrong. I considered that maybe having started in Gospel music that I have taken the wrong road…maybe so, but however hard I try….no matter what I do it’s just not the same anymore.
I’m so proud of some of the work I did manage to do and so happy that I got to be part of a world of brilliant musicians that ooze with talent and honestly the world just isn’t ready!!!!
I’m sorry about everything I ever did that hurt anyone.”It is with such a heavy heart that I have decided that music and I have come to the end of our road. I want to announce that I’m withdrawing from my former public life and I feel I have fulfilled my obligations and done all I can! Sometimes we have nothing, but to accept that something has come to its end. It is indeed a bitter end.”
