Trevor Dongo is one of the most talented R and B singers and song writers in Zimbabwe. The talented crooner rose to stardom in 2001 after the release of his debut album 'Ndozviita sei'. The title track became an instant hit within weeks. Since then Dongo never looked back releasing a string of hits such as 'Tivanyadzise', 'Ruva Rashe', 'Takonana' and 'Ndashamisika'. The latter no doubt was one of the most popular tracks in 2012. It topped the charts and stayed for an unpredictable eight months.


The youthful crooner is the first born in a family of six. He is the only boy in a family dominated with 5 girls. He was raised in Harare's Highfield suburb. Dongo got engaged to his fiance Ashley Mawumbe in April 2014. The love birds celebrted their engagement in style with Trevor performing at the ZimCafe Restaurant. The engagement was spiced up by perfomances from fellow musicians Ngoni Kambarami and Muduwahood.[1]


Dongo did his primary education at Rusvingo Primary School before enrolling at Kwayedza High School for his secondary education.

Music career

Dongo started writing music at school. By then, he took it as a hobby and never knew it would become his full time career. His passion continued to grow leading him into recording demos. While at college he decided to sing for a living but since he had some doubts, he did the two simultaneously.[2] After completion of his Art course, Dongo went on to release his first album 'Ndozviita Sei'. The album was a success story and from there he never looked back. In 2010, he went on to release his second offering 'Ruvarashe'. His latest album is 'First Verse' which is arguably his best so far. The album carried hit tracks such as 'Musikana wangu' and 'Ndashamisika'.


Dongo made his debut international tour in 2012 when he embarked on a Unted Kingdom tour together with local hip hop gurus Maskiri and Leonard Mapfumo. In May 2014, he was part of the Zimbabean atists that descended in the United Kingdom for the UK summer Festival. This saw Dongo and the other six staging three shows in Luton, Coventry and Manchester.[3]
