Dancer and rhumba artiste Lyn Magodo aka Lady Storm has cancelled her birthday bash slated for tomorrow at City Sports Bar in Harare after she lost a close relative.

Her 24th birthday celebrations were supposed to be graced by Andy Muridzo, Edith WeUtonga, Carlos Green, Madiz, Dr Tawanda, Choniso, Juntal, Jean Masters, Tendai Chimombe, Ammi Jamanda and Talking Guitars among others.

“I lost my grandmother hence there is no way I can celebrate at the same time mourning. As a result I have decided to cancel the planned bash,” she said.

Magodo commenced her artistic journey as a dancer before maturing into a recording musician.

“Though I made my name as a dancer, I have since grown into a complete musician and this is why the majority of artistes to grace the event are respected musicians rather than mere dancers,” she said.

The vivacious Swagga Band leader was recently involved in a bar brawl where she was fighting for a man.

“It was not premeditated but I acted in self defence since I was being stalked. I had never fought anyone in my life before, hence the need to apologise,” she said in a previous interview with this publication.

 Lady Storm is currently working on a second album. Her debut studio project is called Ndisvikewo.

The bubbly dancer believes her debut album lacked enough promotion on the market hence it failed to perform well.

“I believe the video is one of the best in the country but it only lacked promotion.

“I do not know how best I can do to make it known to fans,” said Magodo.

The ex-soldier who claims to be 24 attracted attention in the Eriza video where she showcased her dancing skills donning a school uniform, a development that has resulted in the bulk of commercial sex workers putting skimpy school uniforms while on “work”.

However, some of her critics believe she stormed into limelight mainly owing to her vivacious looks.
