SONGBIRD Miriam Sasha Lishomwa recently left tongues wagging when she left the stage due to labour pains.

The 31-year-old spent the greater part of her pregnancy staging shows and she only ‘adjourned’ shows a day before she went into labour.

Sasha was blessed with a bouncing baby girl at Harare Central Hospital.

In an interview, the former Sounds of Motherland backing vocalist could not hide her elation.

“I was laughing throughout the labour to the astonishment of all doctors and nurses; I was just enjoying holding my child soon after delivering.

“I am very happy, this was my first pregnancy and it has been giving me more energy on stage.

“I did not feel any pain during labour; I think it was because of my performances which gave me enough physical preparation for this alleged painful period.

“That is why I have been staging all my shows till giving birth after my show at Dallas Night Club, Glen View 4.

“I carried my pregnancy preparation with me the day I had my last show.

“I felt that something was going to happen that day or on stage. I just took it easy on stage as the baby was dancing to the show too that day,” said Sasha in a wide smile of relief.
Sasha opened up about her career.

“I was born on 24 April 1984.

“Musically, I started when I was in the Sunday schools choir at the age of five.

“It was a girls’ singing group and I was singing soprano.

“Formally, it was in 1999 through Living Waters Bible College in Tynwald under Killer Barare and Peter Majoni, that I was introduced on stage through a gala.

“I thank my husband Blessing Chayeza, a motor mechanic, for this day. You know art and pregnancy they are so challenging together,” said Sasha.Sasha Miriram Lishoma(24-041984) (1)
