First-year UZ student drops college to pursue music and poetry
Born and raised in Kuwadzana, Leonard comes from a family of six, two older brothers and a younger sister. Straight out of Kuwadzana 8 Primary School, Leonard passed his 'O' and 'A' Levels, having studied at St Francis of Assisi High School and Goromonzi High School, respectively.
In 2013, Leonard enrolled at the University of Zimbabwe and began his studies later that year doing Honours in Agricultural Engineering. Two years later, he then dropped out of school to pursue a career in music and spoken word poetry.
Here's what the young man had to say, “I'm 24 years old and I'm a Christian. I've been a member of The United Family International Church for the past 5 years (UFI), and it is through the teachings of Prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa that I found my purpose in life which I believe is to minister the word of God, hence I plan on enrolling for Bible school very soon.” His music can be found and downloaded on OyOsMusic online store which distributes music for Zimbabwean artists.
