The EX-Q biography is a compilation of everything that has happened with the artist, from his introduction to fame and success. It also chronicles how he managed to stay true to his roots through uprisings of electro and hip hop into Africa’s new generation sound.
EX-Q has been active in the music industry since 2000, and the first single he released was ‘Musalala’ which was a massive hit for EX-Q and went on to release singles that gained massive popularity too. He also received an offer to record a single with Roki, another Zimbabwean artist whom he collaborated with on the song ‘Alleluyah’ with exceptional instrumental and outstanding voice quality.
Over time, EX-Q has worked with many different established and upcoming artists in Zimbabwe. He has worked with the likes of Stunner, Extra Large, Tererai Mugwadi, Roki, and many more.
ExQ is a father of two children named Trey and Tiara, who he’s had with his ex-wife Irene Office. His true identity is Enock Munhenga, and he’s one of the many talented artists who make up the Zimbabwean Urban Grooves.
EX-Q is currently 26 years old, and his birthday was on the 11th of January, 1996. He was born in Harare, Zimbabwe, and currently has two children.
In an era when Urban Grooves was gaining popularity in the country, EX-Q rose to stardom when he released his single, ‘Musalala’ alternatively known as ‘Salad,’ and he has been hailed as one of the most successful musicians in Zimbabwean history. Many of his songs were a huge hit during the times when Urban Grooves as a genre was gaining popularity in the country.
EX-Q became one of the top stars in the music industry during the era that witnessed the emergence of Urban Grooves as the preferred music style among Zimbabweans. After ‘Musalala,’ he went on to release ‘Pandakakuona’ in collaboration with Shame and Nathan.
Coincidentally, EX-Q is one of the few musicians who the directive of the Minister of Information, Professor Jonathan Moyo, in 2000 favored, as his songs got a consistent presence in the local music scene through the massive promotions of television and radio stations across the country.
Ex-Q, from that success, went on to release his first album titled Exquisite in 2005, and it had tracks like “Ndichakutevera” and “Mazirudo” several others. After that, he released another album abroad titled “Love is my religion” in collaboration with several artists with a major hit, which is “Pane Rudo’ in collaboration with Oliver Mtukudzi.
In 2015, Ex-Q released his fifth album, which was titled “The Way and Pore Pore. The tracks in the album received massive airplay on several platforms across the country, making him one of the most streamed artists in Zimbabwe that year.
Ex-Q has been in the music industry for over two decades, and his persistence is shown in the albums he released with hit songs at times when most people were not even expecting him to come up with another album.
