On another occasion, the ever controversial, Lady Squanda disappeared from the stage in a huff while performing at a night club in Harare.
Though she later made an apology to the show organiser, Biggie Chinoperekwei, that antic reinforced the belief in dancehall circles on her volatile character.
It seems Squanda believes in intrigue, scandals and controversy as her selling points.
Recently, she was accused of stealing a song by a Bulawayo dancehall artiste hardly six months after she allegedly failed to deliver mobile phones cosmetics and groceries entrusted to her during a tour to the United Kingdom by Zimbabweans based in that country.
Instead of handing over the phones to the relatives of the diasporans, Lady Squanda reportedly became rude when she was asked what had become of the smart phones
The 21-year-old had the cheek to denigrate the diasporans who had sent her text messages: “Muri matsaga, murikundiitira papazi” (You are all stupid).”
In another disparaging text she said, “Une dzungu (You are crazy).”
One of the promoters of the UK tour, Osa Dangerzone, a diasporan promoter from Dzivarasekwa in Harare, confirmed to me that he had entrusted two phones with Lady Squanda, one phone meant for his mother and the other for his father-in-law but Squanda initially claimed the phones had been seized by Zimbabwe customs. Osa Dangerzone tells me that It was only after he had threatened to expose Squanda through Facebook and also followed this up with a news reporter that she decided to give in. His mother and father-in-law eventually received the phones.
Not long ago, Squanda also took her ceaseless bizarre antics to a new low when she faked her own death in an attempt to market an upcoming song entitled ‘Rufu Rwa Squanda’.
Lady Squanda (real name Sandra Gazi), at the age of 21, has already been married twice, first to DJ Staera and then barely a month after she split up with Staera, to someone else only identified as TJ.
Despite her unpredictable character, the young dancehall artiste who was raised by her maternal grandmother, Eunice Tomana, following the death of her mother when she was five years old, remains fairly popular in the country and among Zimbabweans in the diaspora.
I guess this is why she won the best female dancehall artiste award recently.
Lady Squanda has shared the stage with a number of top international artistes including Jamaican dancehall star Capleton aka King Shango
Jokes became Real Life: Do you remember in 2013 when Lady Squanda got punked when she was in UK…acused of having an affair with a married man…This time she has done it for real & she is in a big mess
