Home » Arts & Culture » Best of Me Yet to Come – Seh Calaz

There seems no force g enough to thaw the rave that Seh Calaz is thriving on. Having made his mark in the Zim dancehall fraternity controversially by mocking the Ninja president Winky D, Calaz seems to have got the footing right proven by his ever growing multitudes of fans locally and abroad.

Growing up in the dusty fast lanes of Mbare the diminutive Seh Calaz worked through all negativities associated with the suburb to become one of Zimbabwe constant dancehall chanters churning hit after hit.

Seh Calaz took time to explain his musical journey.

“I am happy with my musical career so far, and the best is yet to come. I have had quite a number of international shows and even collaborated with established Jamaican artiste Turbulence. That does not just happen but I promise more to my fans,” he said.

Born Tawanda Mumanye 23 years ago, Seh Calaz attended St Peters Primary school in Mbare and later enrolled at Mutendi Mission for his High school education. It is at Mutendi Mission that he realized his passion for music which prompted him to join the school choir.

He recorded his first single “Mbare” in honour of his ghetto upbringing. Ever since the single Seh calaz has never looked back, shredding all negative aspects about him being a one hit wonder.

Seh Calaz is married to Thembelihle Moyo and the couple is blessed with a daugther Shalom who is two years old. The family resides in Magaba, Mbare.

Recently Seh Calaz embarked on his maiden tour of the United Kingdom where he held shows with fellow Zimdancehall artists who included Soul Jah Love, Guspy Warrior, Freeman, Nox and Trevor Dongo. They held shows in Leeds, Manchester, Coventry, Luton and London where the Zimbabwean entourage left fans in all the cities begging for more.

His songs which were well received include “Mabhanditi” on which he talks indirectly to former convicts to repent and live a straight life, “Ndisiyeyi”, which tells his peers to let him be and not to hold him back. He applauded the event organisers Digital One for giving him a chance to showcase his talent to the Diasporans.

Seh Calaz has distanced himself from rumours that there is bad blood between Mabhanditi and the Ninjas fronted by Winky D. The musician said he respects Winky D as a fellow musician and that he is mature enough to separate his personal life and music.

The energetic dancehall chanter said that this is just the beginning of his musical career and he is in the industry to stay.
