Ammara breaks down as she narrates how abusive her father was under the influence

Singer Ammara Brown yesterday broke down as she told of how her father was abusive while under the influence of alcohol.

Speaking at the launch of her latest Tichichema video on gender-based-violence in Harare, Ammara said her mother suffered abuse at the hands of the legendary guitarist.

“As I was writing the song I asked myself what message do I want to put across and I’ll be lying to say that I didn’t see it happening.

“I’m going to strip down today because as I grew up I struggled to have a functional relationship and believe me, I loved and still love my father but he had his flaws.

“When my parents divorced I was only 12 years and I didn’t understand what was happening until my mom explained to me and that what I used to see weren’t dreams it was real,” the teary-eyed Ammara said.

“I did see those things and I realized I wasn’t the only one. As artists, I think we can change mindsets even if it is just one person. It’s not just physical abuse sometimes it’s emotional and mental as well.”

The video dropped in time for the 16 days of activism against gender-based violence.

The star-studded video features the talents of seasoned choreographer John Cole, Ammara’s sister Chengeto, and is directed by South Africa based TK.

The production team also includes the likes of renowned filmmaker Joe Njagu.

The DJ Tamuka produced song has a telling video which would make you stop and think about gender-based-violence.

The only minus is that it appears the video gives the impression that the perpetrators will be under the influence of alcohol a position Ammara vehemently defended saying it was based on her life experiences.

“Okay, this is what I witnessed as I grew up and the violence was because somebody was under the influence of alcohol.

“I am fully aware that gender-based violence comes in different forms but this is based on my own life experience,” said Ammara.
