“Just like a prime number, only the One and Only and yourself, define who you are”
Meet Today’s Kudzai Gwenzi. “I am 20 years old, currently a Mechatronic Engineering student at Chinhoyi University of Technology. I am a musician, Programmer and also a producer.”
Musician (singer and Pianist)
I started of playing the piano when I was six, just playing one note at a time but that gradually grew to playing songs. I attended both Eaglesvale Primary and Secondary School, where I developed my music passion more. Attaining a 1st Grade Plus in the National Institute of Allied Arts Eisteddfod 2012 with the School Jazz Band was a start.
Joining the Choir at both schools, I learnt all aspects of music. In 2012, I was the youngest student chosen in the Combined Senior Schools Choir Concert (which was only for Form 4s and above) being Form 2. After leaving school in 2018 being the piano accompanist for the school, I ventured into a wider genre space. Sadly, the keyboard that I had since 2005 no longer worked. So I had to look for another hobby.
This was how I got into beat producing. I started off slow but as I got the hang of it, I started to make more music, better by each track. Worked alongside 4uxion, Crusader_zw (track called Broken) and Niiko the Producer. Currently, I released my debut Instrumental album ‘Elias’. This album touching on all genres that I’ve learnt from my introduction to music including RnB, classical, trap, Hiphop, but adding my feeling of soul. Though album out, a second is coming out full of artist with a more genres.
From the very beginning, I was in love with technology, it even reflected in my marks as I was always in the top 10 in Computer Studies. Even being the Top Student in both my Lower and Upper Six classes at school, I found my calling to programming. I began learning new languages and continued that venture even after school as we are already in a Technological Age.
