Personal life

I decided to come back to Zimbabwe in 2008 when I was working as a cleaner & Night Porter at a local 3 star hotel in Essex. I was that cleaner who the MD used to call into his office every night to assist him with his million £ Pound Excels, then send me to make him a cuppa.[2]

Education

Kuda did his high school at Prince Edward High School in Harare.

Trivia

In 2017 following complaints by Hiphop artists in Zimbabwe that they were being sidelined by the promoters of shows, Musasiwa commented:

“These people are just crybabies, they are lazy. Zim hip-hop must prove its worth, where are the independently promoted shows of our genre that pull so many people so that the country notices?”[3]

Battle With Covid-19

On December 27, 2020, Kuda announced he had tested negative for Covid-19 after undergoing a PCR test.[4]

Three days after the negative result, Kuda revealed that he was still not feeling well. On December 31, 2020, he tweeted that his oxygen levels had dropped so much the previous day that he believed he was dying. He wrote:

Yesterday I was dying. My blood oxygen had got way beyond life. It dropped to about 72%. I could not breathe. This morning I’m on 92%, still very ill but now I will survive. Thank you @drjaytee87 & his team for literally coming and saving my life. Thank you for your prayers.

Hospitalisation Rumours

On January 2, 2021, there were rumours that Kuda had been hospitalised and was in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of an unnamed hospital. His wife, however, dismissed the rumours saying the Kuda that a Twitter user Stella_grooves was referring to was not Kuda Musasiwa. She wrote:

Just to clarify, She has her own brother as well called Kuda. Kuda Musasiwa is still at home and fighting hard, we are hopeful for both of them to pull through. Thank you for everyone who has been keeping us in their thoughts and prayers.
