This is BRIEFLY’s 2nd edition of 2019, and we have a chat with popular radio personality, philanthropist and brand ambassador MisRed (real name Samantha Musa). She tells us what she would do differently if she were to be a teenager again, and shares her opinion on Zimbabwe’s currency…
Oh, and she reveals the one Minister in the current Cabinet who she is willing to give a high-five! Plus MisRed shares with us some pics you’ll only see here!

A: That I didn’t take my time in my younger years to see the world.

A: Sound Engineer
Q: Is Zimbabwe a unique country, and if yes, in what way?
