Wadiwa Wepa Moyo lead actor Everson Chieza, popularly known for his lead role as Man Tawa, is finally back in the country after having been stuck in Botswana since the beginning of the national COVID-19 lockdown.
Man Tawa reportedly could not travel back home due to Covid-19 travel restrictions and finally made it back a fortnight ago.
Upon arrival, he was quarantined at Plumtree High School and was eventually released on Monday.
He is now at his home in Harare with fans excited as this may signal the return of the soapie whose shooting of the second season, had been halted due to Man Tawa’s absence among other Covid-19 related reasons.
Speaking to The Chronicle from Harare, Man Tawa said:
I’m officially back home in Zimbabwe. This is after I underwent Covid-19 testing and quarantine. I was very cautious with my travelling and I’m glad that I tested negative. It really wasn’t an easy decision to travel back considering the situation, but I needed to do it in order to pursue my dreams and passion.
He stated fans can expect him to appear in other projects which are not Wadiwa Wepa Moyo. He said:
Now there’s a whole lot more to expect. I know people are mostly excited by Wadiwa Wepa Moyo, but there’ll be more of me in different screenplays as a different person. My only hope though is that Wadiwa Wepa Moyo supporters adjust to seeing me as a different person in other screenplays. Now that I’m in Zimbabwe, it’s time to work.
Wadiwa Wepa Moyo series production manager, Kudakwashe Jani in a recent interview said the production is scheduled for January next year adding that they are working on other projects for now.

Looks like ‘Jojo’ promises to relive the party spirit with its high-energy percussion, compelling vocals, and pulsating beats.
Shot entirely in Lagos, Nigeria, the music video is pristine and tells a story of a world post-lockdown, a reality which humanity longs for. Apart from the iconic city shots,
electrifying dance moves, sweet vibes, and colourful outfits, the video features an all-female biker crew.

Kelly in South Africa and the This Day Peace Concert Tour in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria, which had 50 Cent and Ciara as headliners. On request of the President of Nigeria, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, he was invited to perform at the presidential villa in an exclusive dinner to commemorate the Country’s 50th independence Anniversary.
