Meet Today’s Spotlight Nyasha T. Mapuranga who is better and more passionately known as SHALdo!

“I find it ironic how there is an increasing number of people that are familiar to my voice, when I’m only starting to find my voice.
To some, I’m a radio producer/presenter. To some, I’m a photographer. To some, I’m a reluctant rapper who insists on being a poet. Toni Morrison once said, “Definitions are for the definers, not the defined”. ________
Many have heard my voice on radio. I produce a weekly midday show hosted by DJ Mox on Star FM and present my own midnight show every Sunday. A lucky few have witnessed me turn samurai as I pierced through hearts and minds with my sword, my word. I was recently crowned Slam King of the just ended digital poetry slam hosted by Moto Republik and Page Poetry Alive.

My insatiable creative curiosity has developed in me, a keen interest for different art-forms. Therefore, I can’t stick to one definition, but at the core of my being, I’m a writer constantly looking for different avenues to express myself.

How I ended up working at Star FM has God’s hand written all over it, but that’s a story for another day.The nature of my work can be likened to football. I assume the role of manager and my job is to put players in positions to score. Players can be the presenter that I produce for. Players can be music artists. Players can be the seemingly small man on the street who has big dreams and is making big impact in his community. Ultimately, it’s not merely about scoring goals. The true beauty of football is its power to unite people from different backgrounds with different worldviews and values. People wouldn’t ordinary look each other in the eye can find themselves hugging each other while celebrating a goal. Through radio, poetry and any other media of expression, I am intentional about invoking a similar feeling in people.

A poet and friend of mine, Bradley Odilo (@MacOdilo) once said, “the beauty of art is its expression, but the intent of art is communication.” That is a philosophy that I live by.”
