The words “talented” and “beautiful” sum up Tyra Chikocho, a gospel musician-cum-comedian making it big in the local showbiz industry where only the brave have a speck of chance to survive.
Also known as Madam Boss, Chikocho’s life is a classic rags to riches story as she stayed in the rural areas as a toddler and was a maid before what she has become today.
With her voice matching her stunning looks, Chikocho has a bag full of head-turning traits, which have unsurprisingly won her many hearts among the urban lot exposed to her work on social media.
Interestingly, Madam Boss believes there are no bounds to anything one can do in life and she is a living testimony.
“When you pray to God, don’t ask for money, don’t ask for fame but ask for wisdom… Once you have wisdom, you can do all things,” she recently shared with her 18 000 followers on Instagram page @madama_boss_zim.
Although her first album, produced by MacDonald “MacDee” Chidavaenzi, could not jumpstart her into fame, comic skits highlighting the abuse maids face from their paymasters attracted attention last year.
As she climbs up the ladder, flights overseas for shows have become a regular feature on her calendar as another tour beckons for her, this time to Australia.
