TATENDA Munhamo, a teacher based in Chitungwiza, currently juggles careers in education and music.

Besides being an agriculture teacher, he is also a hip-hop singer and producer.

Known in musical circles as “Tate Beatz”, he recently released a new album called “Unspoken Thoughts”.

Some of the songs that make up the album are “Moyo Wangu”, “Tariro”, and “What a Party”, among others.

“What a Party” is a party song that is likely to get positive praise from hip-hop fans.

But how does he manage to juggle between the two careers?

“I have two dreams: I want to be the best teacher and at the same time I also want to be a famous musician. All I do is manage my time properly so that both careers flourish,” Munhamo said.

He urged parents and guardians to encourage children to pursue their dreams.

“We can’t all be university professors. Some people are born to be musicians and parents should encourage their children to do things they are good at. Music and sports are also careers,” says the budding artist, who was inspired by the late American singer Tupac.

“Unspoken Thoughts” is his second album, “Pay My Hustle” being his first musical production.

He is currently in the studio working on his third album titled “Grey Episodes”, which will be released later this year in time for the holiday season.
