Zimbabwe has talented upcoming artists who are desperately in need of support from society so as to ignite and showcase their talents. Some are down in remote rural areas and others are in ghettos but they all require community support.

One such is Nicholas Gundu – stage name ‘Sergeant’ – an upcoming artists who was born with musical talent but has been struggling to get into the limelight due to limited resources.

Regardless of his background as someone who grew up in the remote rural areas in Gokwe, he has managed to produce a six-track album.

Nicho ‘Sergeant’ Mukundo produced his first album titled “Zvakarongeka” with six tracks in 2021 and his music is dominating airwaves. As a Sungura musician, he faces tight competition from the musical legends likes of “Baba Shero” Aleck Macheso , Sulu and others who have successfully made names in the industry.

Nicholas and The Wire Printers Band have been holding shows in Harare and other places outside the capital.

“We have held several shows in Harare, Chakari,  Kadoma, Kwekwe and Rutenga, to just mention few places. I have also done a collabo with Aleck Macheso’s sons and we had shows in Gweru and Kwekwe,” said Nicholas.

“Our challenge as The Wire Printers Band is lack of enough instruments and we also need a vibrant band manager who can organize shows for us. We are also keen to be part of national awareness campaigns as entertainers, and we ask for any well wisher who can sponsor our band,” added Nicholas.

The Wire Printers Band is currently working on another project which they intend to produce a video.

Nicholas Gundu was born on 9 May 1985 in Gokwe Nembudziya, did his primary and secondary education at Hwadzi primary and secondary. He finished his Ordinary Level in 2002, and is married with one child and he is a Christian.
