NewsDay (Zimbabwe) - - Front Page - BY SHARON SIBINDI

“My fash­ion sense started dur­ing my school days and I was one of the smartest and stylish stu­dents. I grew up with it and it's wise to dress up as a man. Peo­ple love my style be­cause I have put swag to it. I am now a fash­ion con­sul­tant, stylist and I love fash­ion so much. I want to show cre­ativ­ity through it. “I have praised the Fash­ion Maradona even in my mu­sic on Asam­beni the line goes like ... Fash­ion Maradona Di­ago ... Then I bring the lyrics again on Qholoza where I am fea­tured in San­dra Nde­bele-Sibindi’s new track. The lyrics go like ... Ling­bize ngo Okocha, Fash­ion Maradona ng­zok­li­maza ...”

AFRO-POP singer and dancer Mzoe7, real name Mzobanzi Mlauzi’s fash­ion sense is as bold and at­ten­tion-grab­bing as his lyrics.

Mzoe7, who chore­ographed for the RoilBAA and the Skyz Metro awards, be­lieves the eye-catch­ing fu­sion of bright colours in his ap­parel is his way of light­ing up his present and fu­ture.

The Asam­beni hit­maker has a bub­bly char­ac­ter as his dress sense.

Mzoe7 said his fash­ion style started when he was in pri­mary school and most peo­ple then didn’t un­der­stand him, but now they do.

“My fash­ion sense started dur­ing my school days and I was one of the smartest and stylish stu­dents.

I grew up with it and it's wise to dress up as a man. Peo­ple love my style be­cause I have put swag to it,” he said.

“I am now a fash­ion con­sul­tant, stylist and I love fash­ion so much.

I want to show cre­ativ­ity through it.”

Mzoe7 said fash­ion runs in his fam­ily genes.

“My father used to be a tai­lor, fash­ion de­signer and worked at Bhikha among other places, mak­ing de­signer suits and was do­ing this also in Malawi where we come from,” he said.

Mzoe7 be­lieves his colour­ful dress­ing makes him a win­ner ev­ery time and in­spires him to cre­ate lyri­cal mas­ter­pieces from thin air.

“I have praised the Fash­ion Maradona even in my mu­sic on Asam­beni the line goes like ... Fash­ion Maradona Di­ago ... Then I bring the lyrics again on Qholoza where I am fea­tured in San­dra Nde­bele-Sibindi’s new track. The lyrics go like ... Ling­bize ngo Okocha, Fash­ion Maradona ng­zok­li­maza ...”

Known for also stomp­ing yard and set­ting tongues wag­ging dur­ing his per­for­mances, Mzoe7 said he loves bright colours and has al­ways praised “Fash­ion Maradona” in his mu­sic.

“I am Lomwe, we are bright, we are joy­ful, and we love spread­ing love that is why you al­ways see me in bright colours. I never had an easy up­bring­ing, but now I light my present and fu­ture up with dif­fer­ent colours,” he said. The singer said he is be­ing dressed by Klob­ber Fu­sion as they un­der­stand his fash­ion taste and al­ways get him unique stuff.

“In my mu­sic videos I also make sure I bring out a dif­fer­ent look al­ways and award­nom­i­nated Puz­zle mo­ment Pictures has also helped me es­tab­lish the Fash­ion Maradona trade­mark. They have cap­tured the best mo­ments in high qual­ity and it gets a lot of good feed­back,” he said.

The singer is the last in a fam­ily of seven and that is where he drives his moniker Mzoe.
