Imagine listening in to a late night show where people call in with their various domestic challenges and get advice on various topics and suddenly – you hear moans and groans live on air!

Such is the life for “tete” (aunty) Ginger when she is live on air each Sunday on the On Midlands Fm. She hosts the show as people call in with various problems and she dishes out her advice without apologies. This particular scenario happened when a couple called in about their “biscuit” problems and decided to put the advice they were getting straight into practice. They were at it then and there and all Ginger could do was end with a shaken “Oh zvavo zvaita kwenyu moto urikubvirawo here” (their problem has been solved, is the fire also burning as hot in your married life?) and quickly dissolved that magical moment with a commercial break.

Born Johanna Mathe, this savvy 38 year old takes life in huge strides as she applies herself to her work as the family doctor of sorts through helping couples with various domestic challenges. This earned her the traditional “tete” title which in Shona is the title of aunt who is the family counselor through whom family values are upheld. For some reason most of the problems are of a heated nature which makes many wonder how she manages to dish out the advice so aptly and so candidly at such a young age.

Johanna Mathe aka “tete” Ginger!

Ginger is a mother of 4, surprisingly she is a low-key personality who finds pouts and poses confusing so she does very little for the public appearances through photos and posts. Word Curate found her nature and her career an oxymoron of sorts and decided to follow up on what makes her so vivacious when on air and so introverted every other day of her life.

What many of you may not know is that Johanna is a published musician. Her voice and lyrical vibe are characteristic of the “tete” filled as they are with confidence and alacrity. Read on to get to know tete Ginger some more;

WC: What led you to become a “tete of the nation” on air?

Ginger: “I really love to share what I hope is great advice, especially, from my personal experiences in life.I can empathize and sympathize whatever the situation – but being on air just sort of happened when I pitched my idea of ‘tete.’ It was just an inner calling I had and when I got the chance I grabbed it.”

WC: When off air, how does tete spend her time?

Ginger: “Well being a mom of 4, I enjoy time with my family .I love to socialize as well .I love working with my hands a lot as well so I enhance and redefine ladies looks by doing their make-up, eyelash extensions and all that jazz.” (she says with a chuckle) and adds, “I also enjoy the time I spend writing my music.”

WC: What values make you stand so strongly that you are also able to share with many others some who may be even older than you?

Ginger: FAITH! “Nothing is greater than faith no-matter how small it may be.Someone will always be inspired to know God holds our lives from the beginning to the very bitter end -whatever the circumstances.”

What fascinates me about Ginger is that there is nothing trashy about her personality. She is all fun with all the trimmings and gets real when it comes right down to it. Her firmest support comes from, surprisingly, her parents. Awkwardly at first though, he didn’t know his daughter was the popular controversial issues “tete” on air, but when he did, his reaction was quite thrilling. He even boasts to his friends at work about it to date.

On her plans for the future-Ginger looks forward to the day she will be hosting her very own talk-show and be able to actually radically help people deal with their issues in a relatable and engaging large platform style show. To the young women out there, from tete, “Its a dog eat dog world out there but always pray that you take yourself to the top and make God your anchor.”

Meet “tete” Ginger on air on Zimbabwe’s Midlands Fm every Sunday on the Sunday Jazz show for candid advice that cuts right to the bone. You can listen to her music on Deezer;

“I am blogging as an Individual Member of The Authenticity Alliance, and I frequently blog on behalf of other Alliance members.”
