Mare, who has won several awards since she returned to Zimbabwe from the UK five years ago, said she has no intention of moving to another country.

“It is not true. I come to the UK many times. I came for my sister’s wedding. See my profile picture,” she said via WhatsApp.

Her manager and fellow musician, Tytan — whose duet with Ammara Brown titled Mukoko topped local charts early this year — also poured cold water on the purported relocation.

“Who told you that? She travelled for her sister’s wedding,” he said.

Though Mare’s WhatsApp profile confirms the wedding, a fellow musician claimed that the award-winning musician has decided to shuttle between Harare and UK.

“She moved back there three months ago. She will only come back for gigs, video shoots and award ceremonies. This is probably due to the current economic situation which is continuing to deteriorate. I am not sure what she will be doing in the UK but that is my understanding that she left the country for good,” he said.

Along with Selmor Mtukudzi, Mare has been the leading Zimbabwean female musician over the last few years. The Zimbabwe Music Awards 2014 awards ceremony is without doubt the highlight of her career to date. She won the Best Female, Best Single Alternative and Best Alternative Album Awards in one glorious night.

The affable singer continued with her phenomenal award-winning streak by picking the coveted Outstanding Female Musician gong at the National Arts Merit Awards in February 2015. Daily News
