UNWELL Zimdancehall artiste, Bounty Lisa, is hoping to have a growth that developed on her right leg removed so that she returns to the stage.
The chanter – real name Lynette Lisa Musenyi – told H-Metro yesterday that she last performed in 2017 and she misses entertaining her fans.
She was speaking during a visit by Youth, Sport, Arts and Recreation Deputy Minister Tinoda Machakaire who paid a courtesy call at her Kuwadzana residency to check on her condition and make possible arrangements for her treatment.
“It’s not a secret, I miss the stage. That’s my job and I do it with passion. So besides that it has been a source of income, I enjoy performing. I enjoy singing.
“The hope is just that I get treatment early so that I bounce to do the things that I like,” said Bounty Lisa.
The singer, who was in high spirits, said she will continue recording so that she remains on the limelight.
“I cannot perform and the last time I was in studio is in 2017. I cannot dance or jump anymore. You what it is with Zimdancehall but I have been recording and I have a number of songs that are doing well,” she said.
The Vari Ordinary singer thanked everyone who is sending her messages of support.
“I am getting support from family, friends and fellow artistes. It gives me hope and belief that I will be well. Also to the Deputy Minister (Tinoda Machakaire). It shows that they appreciate what we do as musicians.
“As you heard, she promised to help and fast forward my treatment. This is something I didn’t expect and I am happy for that,” said Bounty Lisa.
Bounty Lisa denied that she has been hiding her condition saying they have been seeking treatment for some time.
“It’s not like I have been hiding this. It started in 2014 and I have been going to hospital when it grew.
“A number of people knows these, I told my fellow musicians like Freeman who have been sending me messages of support,” she said.
