A 29-YEAR-OLD gospel artiste has sensationally claimed she quit her faith and gospel to satisfy the desires of her flesh.
Evidence Jiri confessed to dating married men, including several men of clothing and musicians, during her gospel music career when she released two albums, namely Ngandikundi in 2008 and Ndirwirei Jesu in 2010.
Jiri, who has turned to sex work, made headlines when she clashed with Mathias Mhere over his song Favour claiming that she was the one who penned it but delayed releasing it.
“I am a musician and will remain a musician but I am no longer in Chihurento gospel music because I have smeared my garments with fornication and adultery,” said Jiri.
“Music is within my veins and the same veins have dirty blood of sinning and this forced me to dump gospel music and turn to Afro-fusion.
“One of my songs I released soon after dumping gospel music is Hachisekanwi and I penned this following stigma I suffered over turning to sex work.
“To be honest with you I bedded several married men, some musicians and even some men of cloth while singing gospel in the name of support.
“Chivi chinosvika pakukura munyama zvekuti unoremerwa kuimba zva Mwari saka ndakarega ndakanga ndazara nekuipa.
“Ndakaona kuti kunevafundisi vanemukurumbira vanoda kuzviita kunge vatsvene asi vachirarama muzvakaipa.
“Ndine vafundisi nemaporo ta vashoma vandinoziva vanoratidza kuti vanezvipo asi vanhu venyama kwete ana holier than thou vanoita zvivi pakawanda,” said Jiri.
Jiri is set to release a six-track album Nhamo ndimirire next month and on some of the tracks she collaborated with Peter Moyo and several artistes based in South Africa.
Jiri urged her followers to be safe from the deadly Covid-19 which she said claimed some of her relatives.
“Covid-19 is real at first. I thought it was a joke but I believed it was real when it claimed my close relatives and friends,” said Jiri.
“I would like to urge my fans and my gossip followers to keep themselves safe from the pandemic by observing health measures set to curb the continued spread of it,” she said.
