Stunner told H-Metro on Sunday that his mother had passed on in the early hours of the morning due to an unknown illness. “She was generally a healthy person all her life and I don’t remember her ever being sick or hospitalized,” Stunner said in a short statement, before going further. He indicated that the details about the cause of death are still sketchy as tests results are pending. This comes as fellow hip-hop artist King 98 and the popular Prophet Passion have lost their father and mother respectively.

This is a very dark day in Zimbabwe's entertainment industry and a clear sign that 2021 has not started on the right foot. Olinda shared a statement on the passing of Stunner's mother on her Facebook page that said:

"My heart is heavy. I keep asking and checking if I heard correctly. Only to be met with the same answer. I can’t believe I am typing your eulogy. I wish I could explain how you were not my mother in law but my mom. But only you and I know the bond we shared. “Mhunhu wenyu” as he’d say. And such a bond needs no explanation. I will miss your jokes and your contagious smile. Who am I going to sing “eriza iwedzokorora” to ? Who is going to recite the rosary to me?  

Mom thank you for all the love you showed me. 

Sleep well Super Granny, till we meet again 💔"

Olinda seems to have shared a close relationship with his former mother in law although she and Stunner had a turbulent relationship. In 2016 Olinda and Stunner were married in a customary union was Stunner reportedly paid $16 000 as the bride price (lobola).

The couple would go on to have a year where their relationship seemed to be rather stable but then things would breakdown acrimoniously. Their union would not make it to two years and they would be a lot of fights played out in the media.

In an interview with Ruvheneko, Stunner was asked whether he cheated on his wife and he responded, 

“Yes, that’s what happened. I had a slight lack of common sense and it was a mistake but I’m not trying to justify myself,” he said

The rapper broke into tears as he explained his intent to “fix his marriage” at the time.

“I am tearing up because this is crazy. The way she reacted or maybe because of the way I didn’t react.”

“In our marriage, she makes the most… she is not the breadwinner, bread is only a dollar, I have worked for my name and I feel my name is worth something. It is just money at the end of the day and it really doesn’t matter."
Other musicians have also come out shared condolence messages for Stunner.

In an Instagram comment, Trevor Dongo wrote: 

"Haaa gore rino ratanga nemarwadzisa akanyanyisa, Momz varwadzisa chokwadi"

The My Melody hitmaker Nox also shared a message saying: 

"RIP mum. Losing a mother is the most painful thing to happen to anyone. May you be comforted by Jesus' love."
