Up close and personal with Pinkie Minaj



Pinky minaj

It’s quite an honour making a contribution in this column in my own capacity as Pinkie Minaj, a st_ripper and founder of Midnight Angels.

I have been longing for this opportunity over the years to enlighten old and new fans on this new movement which has taken over the showbiz landscape by storm.

And being one of the finest (st_rippers) in this movement – strip tease – I would like to share my vision with fans and clarify a number of issues.

A lot of accusations and counter-accusations have been made, of course targeted at my profile but I remain firm and resolute as I stick to my goals.

To find more about my vision, brief profile and of my calling in this movement, read on…


My real name is Cinderella Tashana but those in my circles (st_rip tease) simply know me as Pinkie Minaj.

I was born on the 1st of January 1997 in Bulawayo.

I am a coloured girl born to an Indian woman and black father in a family of five – four girls and a boy.

I did my primary education at Coughlan Junior before I did my high school in Gweru.

I finished my ordinary level in 2014 and passed four subjects – Mathematics, English, Science and Geography.

I could neither supplement my Ordinary levels nor proceed to A Level because I was fed up with school.


I then realised my calling for the pole (st_rip tease) last year and I can safely say I was largely self-taught.

I learnt the game through watching videos and it just happened.

I was inspired by Nicki Minaj (the Trinidadian born American rapper) who rules the roost in this game.

Like I said earlier on, I have a group of dancers called Midnight Angels.


Like any other entertainer, going international is and has always been my dream.

Locally, the industry is not paying well and we all hope to make a breakthrough on the international scene where the remuneration is good.


It was a tough decision I took to venture into st_rip tease since my mother wanted me to pursue my education.

At one point she was stressed but she finally allowed me to pursue my career of choice.

Locally, it’s immoral to venture into st_rip tease but this is the in-thing and our source of livelihood.

People should embrace us since st_rip tease is part of adult entertainment.


Like I indicated earlier on, we are not yet there locally but we are managing.

Our industry is not yet rewarding and being pioneers we won’t give up.

However, I am happy with what I get at Tipperary’s and of course at private functions.


I think when I gave my dad’s friend a lap dance – that was the most embarrassing moment in my life that I can still recall up to now.


I am in love with Tawanda Magodo.

I don’t have any kids yet but will plan baby-making in December if all goes according to plan.


I am good 100 percent at it. I try by all means to match all my moves (on stage and pole).

But to be honest, in the play game (se_x) other moves can be created as you go about it.


I was 15 years old when I lost my vi_rginity.

It happened on our Christmas party at the school hostel.


I can’t compare myself with them but what I am aware of is that men have different tastes.

In my case, my act is a ‘world class’ to say the least.

On that note, most girls – particularly st_rippers – accuse me of using lucky charms and juju yet it’s just an inborn thing.

I don’t use juju neither do I use charms.


Some male patrons usually make se_xual advances but I don’t give in to their demands.

I have bouncers who protect me and I make sure that se_x predators don’t come anywhere near me during and after the shows.

I’m simply the best there is in this particular game.


I am beautiful and they all know it. I’m actually a threat to most ladies, particularly st_rippers.

They can bleach their skins but there is no way they can match me; mine (beauty) is natural.


People should stop judging harshly, it’s a new movement taking over on the showbiz scene and people need to accept reality.


I am a resident st_ripper at Tipperary’s even though I play at other venues.

I am also hired for private events by those who need my services.

Despite holding most of my shows in the capital, I also perform in other cities/towns like Mutare, Beitbridge and Bulawayo.
