When new music drops the excitement grips most people in anticipation of something that resonates with them. After the 91 EP fever was passed I was still hooked with the authenticity of the sound and vocal of Tina Masawi so I asked for a seat down with her . This discourse was both exciting and revealing because we get to know the person more
Tina Masawi described as a Musician, Actress, and Model so my question is who are you?
I am an artist, in a nutshell.
Cutting your teeth doing musicals at Reps and 7 Arts how important was that stage in building the artist you’re today?
It was the most important stage. It was my introduction to the arts industry and I met a lot of key characters that helped in my development as an artist during that time. The theater was a second home to me.
Let’s get back shall we, how did get raised, and who introduced you to music and performances arts?
I was raised by parents who love music, my mom, her sisters and my granny loved to sing all the time, so I used to get cassettes and musical instruments as gifts. I have loved music for as long as I can remember.
You’re more of a soul person 😄, are you a lover girl?
LOL I wouldn’t call myself that at all, but I am a sensitive person I suppose. I think you have to be in order to genuinely express or interpret art if that’s what you’re asking.
Let’s talk about your first official track and hearing it on the radio?
The first track that made it to radio was Release Me, on Reverb 7’s very first album. I was psyched when I first heard it naturally.
Working with titans at Show Time, Verb, Tagz, Courtney how did that push you as an artist?
It was such a wholesome space to be in. We were all such close friends and so the musical chemistry was incredible. It really helped me be a better artist, they challenged me to push my limits and I will forever be grateful for that.
What lessons have you learned so far in the music industry?
I could write a book! But the most important is to just be myself, that is what makes me special.
Three things people don’t know about you?
I write poetry. I can really cook and bake. And I speak 6 languages.
5 local songs you’re playing right now?
- Holy Ten – Mwana Ndakubirai
2.Uche Buzz– Would you Baby
3.Tanto Wavie– John Vhura Gedhi
4. Tamy – Kwandinobva
4. Sha Sha– Woza
What can we expect in 2021?
New music hopefully. Currently working on some dope collaborations and if all goes well, some fire visuals to go with them.
