Fungisai Zvakavapano-Mashavave has dropped a dancehall and Afro-pop single as she shrugged off the controversy torched by her departure from conventional gospel music following her duet with Killer T on Vanondibatirana six months ago.However, the new offering has come with controversy after another Zimbabwean artist, Vee Kay accused Fungisai of stealing the song from her. Vee Kay even threatened Fungisai with legal action.
The new tracks — Huya Uone (Afro-pop) and Amai Ndakanaka Amai (Zimdancehall) — were now available on different media platforms including iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, Google Play and Tidal.
Fungisai said that Huya Uone was a meditative reflection on the amazing works of God through people, while Amai Ndakanaka Amai is a song focussing on the girl-child.

Fungisai said although some people failed to understand her decision to adopt the dancehall beat, she was on a mission to reach out to teenagers sold out to a life of violence and drug abuse.
“As a mother, I have taken it upon myself to package positive and character building messages in a beat our children can identify with.
I will continue encouraging the young highly talented fellow artistes to sing morally uplifting messages,” she said.
Her latest singles on dancehall riddims were produced by Oskid and PTK.
