Self-styled best rapper in Zimbabwe Stunner, real name Desmond Chideme (pictured right), who was admitted at a Harare private hospital, has been discharged and is now recovering from his Glen Norah home.
Family spokesperson, Godfrey “Vokal” Bakasa said Stunner, who had been admitted in the private facility for a week, was discharged on Wednesday.
“Stunner is doing well on his home recovery path and I can tell you that he is doing better than the last time he was in hospital,” Vokal said.
“He is due for medical checkups and I will update on that. We wish him a speedy recovery and hope to have him back in the music circles.”
Stunner’s career is rich with musical success and a fair share of controversy. He boasts of many hits and chart-topping records like Team Hombe, Godo and many more. He has released a number of albums, including If I Die Tonight, Hameno, Kalife, Team Hombe, Number One and Can’t Stop Me, among others.
The rapper once made headlines after he was involved in an accident while driving without a licence.
He also made news for his marriage to socialite Olinda Chapel before fellow musician and friend Tytan Skhokho “snatched” her and wedded her before moving with her to the United Kingdom.
Stunner’s biggest controversial stunt was a leaked sex tape with socialite and businesswoman Pokello Nare.
In April the rapper released a nine-track album titled Dzangaradzimu, which features Ching, Natasha Muz, Ishan and Uncle Epaton, among others.
