Wellington Mafundo is my real name & I am a Gospel Hip Hop Artist & Songwriter better known as "Wellaz," was born & raised in Harare. My gospel musical career started on 24/05/2012, where I wrote my first single, " Embargo." The song was recorded in 2013 at Jnr Nel Beats studio in my hometown of Kwekwe featuring my brother Kudakwashe Mafundo aka Raphiz. Embargo hit the airwaves at Power Fm Zimbabwe, Star Fm Zimbabwe, ZiFM stereo & online radio stations. On 05/11/2014, I released my fresh new single entitled, " Reaching Out To The World," featuring my lil bro Tawanda Mafundo aka Will Young leading the chorus. I also did a remix to, "Reaching Out To The World," featuring Whistle & Flabbz & released it on 25 May 2015. On 27 June 2015 Wellaz was nominated for the Best New Comer Music 2015 in the 2nd Edition of the Midlands Music Awards held at Midlands Hotel in Gweru, Zimbabwe. I also got a chance to perform on stage my song "Reaching Out To The World" alongside my brother Will Young & shared the stage with Mathias Mhere, Shingi Mangoma, Soul Africa, Goodchild, L.Kat & many more artists.
