Dennis Malaya is an 18-year old Zimbabwean R&B and Afro Pop singer based in Harare. His stage name is DennisChris.
Dennis went to Moffat Primary Boarding School and Churchill Boys High. The young artist started recording at the age of 11 years.
To date he has more than 25 songs and is found on various platforms like Youtube, Audiomack, Soundcloud, Itunes, Spotify and more.
Dennis said, " I wanna share my heart and message through music because I feel like too many people have dreams and are talented so I can inspire them through my music. I want to motivate children groomed by single mothers and let people know that we are also humans who need all the things like everybody else." " It's been tough but I thank God for my mom and my relatives. Music is my friend and each time I am writing songs I feel like I'm doing something but if not I just remember that I am a kid trying to fight poverty."
Dennis said that he would like to make his mother proud and be able to take her to his shows and awards. " I am scared if i don't make it in music, then my mom will die working again but if music could give me one chance then I guess I will be able to take care of her. Without my mother's hard work things could have been tough for me."
Dennis is a determined young man and with right grooming and mentorship, the sky is the limit. He dreams of creating a platform to help talented ghetto artists that are not being seen. Dennis says he is a good swimmer too and during holidays in Durban he used to help rescue drowning people at the pool.
