Throwback Pics: Baba Harare’s Humble Beginnings Before He Made It Big
Popular contemporary musician Baba Harare, real name Braveman Chizvino Mwanza, took his fans down memory lane when he shared an endearing throwback photograph of himself during his youth to allow his fans to steal a glimpse that they had never seen before.
The image of the musician is doing the rounds on social media and perfectly illustrates why people should not let their backgrounds, no matter how humble, to define their futures.
In the picture, a young Baba Harare is posing for a photo while wearing oversized clothes and playing a guitar. He captioned the image,
Vamwe vari kuti ndiye vamwe voti haasi iwe unoti ndiyani
[Some are claiming that it is him, while others are saying that it not him. How about you, who do you think it is?]
The picture is a far cry from the suave impeccably dressed musician who is now churning out hit songs.
In true rags to riches style, Baba Harare has discarded the loose-fitting oversized clothes and now dresses in well-fitting designer clothing. The multi-talented artist has a flouring career as a musician.
The Jit musician learnt to play the guitar at a very young age and later joined a band called Sigma Boys as he wanted the experience of playing for a live audience. During this time, he crossed paths with a young and upcoming Jah Prayzah who was still establishing himself in the field.
Jah Prayzah later begged Baba Harare to join his band full time after being impressed by his prowess with the guitar. This after Baba Harare stood in for Jah Prayzah’s guitarist when he was was unable to make it to 3 shows.
Baba Harare joined Jah Prayzah and during his 8 years with the Third Generation band, Jah Prayzah established himself as a musical giant in the country and on the continent. In 2017, Baba Harare went solo and became the frontman for “The City Vibration” band.
He has enjoyed relative success in his solo career and has churned out a series of hit songs which include 2017’s “The Reason Why.“ He is currently riding high with his new track “Handidi Zvekumitisa” which features newbie Nomagugu Ncube.
