South Africa based Rasta Kwasa musician, Dino Mudondo, is now a mine worker in Mpumalanga.
The versatile singer, who is now in his early 40s, says decided to find a second job owing to the uncertainties in music owing to the Covid-19 pandemic.
He, however, said he would not quit music which he said still remains his first love.
“I have started the new year on a positive note. The year promises quite a lot for me because great things are happening in my life.
I’m now a working at a mine in Mpumalanga where were are buying and selling coal.
“I have been working here for the past six months and I really enjoy it,” said the Chirangano hit-maker.
Dino, who used to rely on music to bring food on the table, said there was nothing wrong with him finding a second job.
“World over, people are now multi-tasking because of the Covid-19 pandemic, which has seen some of the sectors closing.
“With my background in marketing and purchasing, I just decided to submit my CV when a vacancy arose at a mine in Mpumalanga
I’m grateful to God because I now have a second job to sustain myself and family.
“With Covid-19 pandemic still in our midst, you never know what will happen the following day so it’s important to always have a fallback plan,” he said.
Music wise, Dino said he was still holding shows whenever he gets an opportunity.
