A 24-year-old Bulawayo based musician, Dama, has vowed his 8 to 4 job as law firm clerk will never stop him from creating music.
Dama, born Muziwandile Khumalo, hails from Tsholotsho.
Recently Dama told Sunday News that he dreams of making music his full time job.
"I grew up around people who appreciated music. My brothers were very musical people and they taught me to play the guitar. It was not until 2009 when I moved to Bulawayo that I realised how much that had influenced me, I realised I wanted music to be my full-time job," said Dama.
Dama said with his musical background he could have chosen any genre of music but since people of Bulawayo love house music, he had to sing for the people.
"I try not to make my music monotonous, I keep it diverse, soulful and versatile while it still remains within the confines of house music. That way, people who do not necessarily enjoy house music are still able to enjoy my music," he said.
In December last year Dama released "Ngena Wena".
Ngena Wena is a joint effort from Dama and Melloworks Studios for production as well as from Shirati Drums. The track, like all of Dama's work, is distributed for free on social media and other online platforms.
