Mr Gerald Ncube- Director/Founder
Born in Plumtree, Zimbabwe in a village called Gwambe, married to Bawilili Dube for over 15 years. I attended my primary school at Gwambe Primary School and secondary at Bezu Secondary School. As a young boy who grew up in the dusty rural area and due to the situation in Zimbabwe most young man in Zimbabwe or should I say in Matabeleland didn’t see any future there, so the answer was South Africa. I came to South Africa in 1992 and worked with my father in the construction industry. Without papers I struggled to further my education and it was hard at the time because South Africa was burning, I remember being arrested several times for not having a passport and at one stage I was deported back to Zimbabwe, I came back of course. I worked as a car mechanic for seven years which included panel beating. In 2001 I started working at a Shell petrol station in Sandhurst as a petrol attended and cashier. I was promoted to supervisor and then manager in a space of one year. Did business management, retail and marketing management with shell in 2003. I am a approved petrol retailer with a Shell franchisee certificate. Between 2001 and current I have been in charge and managed successfully businesses, I have managed Sandhurst shell, Dalpark Shell, Hyde park Shell, Rosetenville Shell and currently at Parkhurst Shell. I was also Retail Director for Revelation Luggage and Leather in charge of their retail division which had three retail stores. Revelation Luggage is one of the biggest promotional luggage manufacture in South Africa.
Apart from that in 2007 my wife Bawilili Dube and I started a music group called Gwambe Stars, the name came from our place of birth as all our members are from Gwambe in Plumtree. Gwambe stars have recorded 3 albums the first one being “Umfazi Onjani” the second one is “Sesibuyile” and latest one "Umhlaba". We have also done a DVD and now selling in South Africa and Zimbabwe.Gwambe Stars is playing Rumba music which is very hard to market due to a limited market but we won’t stop giving our fans good music and if people out there will please stop buying pirate music it is killing our music. I also co own GLM Entertainment with my wife and my brother in law Mbangiseni Ncube. GLM Entertainment market artists and promote them local and international, we have worked with Chase Skuza, Mokis Connection, the lateTongai Moyo, Freddie Gwala, Platform one and Malaika which we accompanied to UK. GLM will now organize weddings, birthday parties and any other event apart from music promotion. I am also Director and co founder of Radio Mthwakazi fm a community radio station for people of Mthwakazi operating from Johannesburg, South Africa, we are currently broadcast on internet.
My dream is to see our region develop in all sectors, to see Radio Mthwakazi broadcasting in Matabeleland, Zimbabwe in all the languages spoken there and I would want to be a successfully businessman in the entertainment industry. At the moment I am working on a project with my colleague at Radio Mthwakazi, Muthusi Ndlovu. We want to groom youth to be musicians, actors and poetries. In this project we want to help our young people to be able to record their music, help them to market it and expose them to the world.

Mr Mothusi Ndlovu- Director/Founder
Mothusi Bashimane Ndlovu
Born in Gwanda , went to Manama High School for my O’Levels and then it was Zezani for my A’Levels.I always thought school authorities mistake great talent for naughtiness.
I am a proud rural boy; I went to a rural primary school and later to a rural boarding school. This helped me a lot as it shaped and taught me great values in life. I never called any one father and I thank my mother for being a strict disciplinarian, otherwise I could have gone off the rails. I was born to be an artist. Yes I might currently be doing office work but my destiny is on the stage and in front of cameras. I am a music writer/composer/producer and I recently finished doing an album for a lady that I call Zimbabwe Queen of gospel. The album a hit will be out soon be assured it will not disappoint. I am an actor, director, poet and musician. My vision is to resuscitate our music and tell the untold stories. Listen to my show Ziyakhithika every Saturday from 1pm-3pm.Sidedeleni sisakaze.
