The Zimbabwean native recently shared with his Twitter followers some advice on how to deal with "friends". 

"Don’t ever be shy to switch up, the same people you call “friends” could be the same people holding you back," shared Tino.


Some of his followers couldn't help but agree with Tino, he also further explained how it's important to align yourself with people that are on the same path as you. 

The couple kept news of them expecting under wraps until their son was officially here. Tino and Simz shared images from their pregnancy photoshoot in August, revealing they had a bundle on the way and that they were a couple. 

They later dropped the bomb, that their baby was born in June and is already 3 months old! 

Tino has been glowing since he welcomed his son, Tiyani Kemorena Michael Chinyani and is filled with so much positivity and is not even letting any dose of negativity change his mood. 

Tino has also been vocal about dealing with internet trolls who body-shamed him for his belly button following images he shared of himself. 

"I learnt to love my flaws & everything about me. It’s called self-love. You dummies should try it sometime. Coz all that negativity just tells me you hate yourself," shared Tino.  

The model encouraged his followers to be proud of who they are because people can't steal your shine at the end, and we must agree with Tino. However, getting to this point has taken Tino some time as before he used to get mad at the bitter souls now, he just sits and laughs at them. 

Tino since welcoming his son has also launched a brand named Tiyani Afrika. The brand has a collection of tracksuits, gym wear and a necklace.
