Nelson Mazivisa was born on 7 September 1985 in Harare and later on relocated to Triangle after his father was transferred to work in the Lowveld. He didn't take football seriously until in form 3 when he was reported by his friend Jorum Muchambo to the school authorities that he was a good footballer who didn't want to take up the sport and that turned out to be the turning point for Nelson Mazivisa.
He started his career in Triangle playing for a Division 1 outfit Triangle United in 2004. In 2005 he moved to the now defunct Kiglon but did not stay there for long before he was lured by his former coach at Kiglon, Philimon Kaseke to join him at Mimosa Football Club (now FC Platinum) which was also playing in the ZIFA Central Region Division 1. After guiding Mimosa FC into the Zimbabwe Premier Soccer League in 2011 he didn't stay there for long as he only lasted for a season and was loaned to their rivals Shabanie Mine FC where he found his form and was the most feared striker in the top flight league as he finished as the top goalscorer in 2012. FC Platinum recalled him but he didn't much game time and saw him join Shabanie Mine and later on Triangle United. He played a couple of games for the Zimbabwe national team.
Nelson Mazivisa has 14 caps for the Zimbabwe national team since 2012 and scored 4 goals in the process.
