TELEVISION personality-cum-musician Alexio Good Child Gwenzi says he developed a passion for fashion ever since he became a TV host highlighting his plans to establish his own clothing label GC.
Gwenzi is popular on ZBC TV where he presents the Coke on the Beat show.
Speaking in an interview with The Standard Style, Gwenzi said he is pushing the clothing line Team GC which is a brainchild of his loyal fans and will then establish the real label.
“As an artiste, l have to experiment with various things and fashion is part of the things l am expected to concentrate on since l have to look presentable on television,” Gwenzi said.
“My fans usually pass good comments about my appearance on television. When l present the Coke show, l am dressed by Edgars Zimbabwe and l am gratefull to them, but on other platforms l wear various labels from my own wardrobe,” Gwenzi said.
He added that the idea of having his own clothing line was still in its infancy and, but his hope was for it to expand and become a great project.
Gwenzi also disclosed how he fell in love with MCeeing at various events for instance the annual Coca Cola Music awards in Harare, inaugural Miss Bodylicious Zimbabwe pageant in Kwekwe and other small events such as weddings where he visited different places across the country.
He said he loves being on television and enjoys each moment when his fans pass positive comments about his good looks.
“Being on television is such an amazing feeling which l cannot explain. Even though the reward is not that much, l am still stuck on television because it is something l cannot do without being part of,” Gwenzi added.
He said that his most memorable moments on television are the episodes of Coke on the Beat whichhe says it is one of the best shows on national television for years.
Gwenzi encouraged other talented youths to live their dreams and not allow their backgrounds hinder their success.
“To anyone who want to succeed either in music or being a television personality, don’t let your background block you. Thank God for social media, no matter where you come from, if you are talented no one can stop you.People will appreciate you as long as you are good at what you do,” Gwenzi said.
