Biography

Who am l?
I am Ndafadzwa Kagande the last time l checked.

When was l born?
Soon as the midwife yanked me out by the head on that fateful day of March 26, 1986. Imagine being man-handled out of your own home in front of an on-looking and cheering crowd whilst you are butt naked. Put yourself in that same scenario and you also would be too upset to check the time.

What am l?
I am only human. So forgive me if I say I am an excellent songwriter, a very lively singer and a darn right serious entertainer!

Where am I?
Musically, I am at that small junction in the back alley of the industry, deep in the woods, where I have just finished writing my songs and l am now making some demo..s. So watch this space for the sample runs and illlustrations. Otherwise morally l am high as ever, mentally sound, emotionally stable, logically up there with the rest of them and spiritually somewhere between Egypt and Canaan, loitering in the Desert! That is to say, I am pretty far gone!

What do I believe in?
In beginnings and endings. I believe in the pre-existence of matter, be it tangible or intangible, visible or invisible. Thus fate is predetermined, ideas are not thought of as much as they are borrowed and songs are not written, but rather you seek them out from the feeling. That is because matter, like energy, can neither be created nor destroyed. It can only be transformed from one form to another.

How am I?
I am very fine thank you for asking.

What do I hope for? Besides breaking free from everything that confines, personally and careerwise, I hope you are going to enjoy my approach to music, have a jolly goood time and if possible, write and sing your own stuff instead of singing along to mine!

My last words?
auf Wiedersehen! Don..t ask me what that means, l just made it up!!!!

Going Nowhere Fast

Hum! Para-rara
Hum! Pa-pa!
Hum! Para-rara
Hum! Pa-pa!
Hum! Para-rara
Hum! Pa-pa!
Hum! Para-rara
Hum! Pa-pa!
My whoah my, l didn`t understand
So much of what she told me then (Boy what did l say..?)
I went, l went l joined the band
I thought l had my bird in hand
My bad, l made a lot of friends
I did have a lot to spend
I spent it all on her you see
The rest l spent on Hennesy
I had quite the fantasy
Till l took my love to Sea
That’s where l got too blind to see
My call to reality
I woke to smell the cup of tea
That is..,

That l am going nowhere nowhere fast,
So fast
So fast l`m blowing past, memories the dust
Getting stuck,
Living dangerously thus, l maybe feeling the crunch
In as much,
As l am-walk-ing-in-the dark, forever spinning around..
And round like a Merry Go Round
And round like a Merry Go Round
And round like a Merry Go Round

I whoah I , Boy what can l say..,
I try to be the best that l can (Oh what can you say..?)
Still I`m back to zero again
Some things are too much for the man
Some pains are too much for a gain
Four seasons in the merciless rain
Still l don’t let it get in the way
I hope to be the hero someday
Come home to people screaming my name

That’s when l come out singing
I `m way up on the ceiling
That’s when l come out singing to them, like this..

Life whoah life, is such a wonderful thing
What more if you`ve got everything (So I`ve heard you say..!)
You dream you have whatever you need
A boat a fancy diamond ring
Bahamas sweetheart you are walking
Yamahas in the water floating
Havanna cigar you are smoking
Panama “Hello!” you are knocking
Banana yellow you are looking
Oh there`s De Niro you are joking
Your momma`s pretty busy shopping
For Prada, Gucci shoes and clothin`
Your Hummer is big and could be talkin`...,Latin

But you-uh –uh uh uh are going nowhere fast
So fast
So fast you`re blowing past, memories the dust
Getting stuck,
Living dangerously thus, You maybe feeling the crunch
In as much,
As You are-walking-in-the dark, forever spinning around...
And round like a Merry Go Round
And round like a Merry Go Round
And round like a Merry Go Round

Oh uh oh uh, oh uh oh uh oh oh.., Lord l try to be a good man
Oh uh oh uh, oh uh oh uh oh oh.., doing good wherever l am
Oh uh oh uh, oh uh oh uh oh oh.., God can live without a woman
Oh uh oh uh, oh uh oh uh oh oh.., but heaven knows l`m only human!

Hum! Para-rara
Hum! Pa-pa!
Hum! Para-rara
Hum! Pa-pa!
