Profile :Mercy Mutsvene

Mercy Mutsvene attended Highfield 2 High School in Harare.

 Her father is a Pastor at Apostolic Faith Mission. Back then, she would sing in church with the choir.

 This prompted her to take music as a career.

The gospel singer was married in 2002 to Simbarashe Ngwenya and they divorced in 2007 before she got married to a Zambian bishop and relocated to Zambia. The marriage lasted for a few months and in 2009 she got married to Tongai Nheta.

Her former husband Simbarashe Ngwenya then referred her to gospel singer Pastor Elias Musakwa.

 Musakwa took her in and created a 'Zimbabwean Rebecca Malope'.
Rebbecca Malope Claim
It was reported that Mutsvene made people believe that there was a working relationship between her and Rebecca Malope, the South African Gospel Artist.

 She claimed too that Rebecca knew about her music since some of it was recorded in SA. She kept on dismissing the accusations of singing Malopes lyrics citing that Malope had given her green light to record music that is similar to hers.

 However, It became clear that she was lying when Malope toured in Zimbabwe. The SA gospel singer dismissed the claims as lies citing that she didn’t know her.

 Some of Mercy’s songs such as ‘Handingabvumi’ and ‘Muri Mutsvene’ are direct translations of Malope’s songs ‘Mangingavumi’ and ‘Ulilanga Lelanga’.
She however released songs that are attributed to Malope name.

 Some of the songs are ‘Ndinovimba Nemi’, ‘Tichasanganiswa’, ‘Zano’, ‘Kedenga’, ‘Ndinonamatira’ and many Pindula News
