Reports coming in Indicate that Flamboyant socialite Genius Kadungure, affectionately known as Ginimbi has died in a high-speed car crash after a night of partying.
He was 36.
The news was confirmed by Former cabinet minister Saviour Kasukuwere who tweeted
“Genius Kadungure~ This is unbearable. A youngman who worked hard and enjoyed hard is no more! The flower has wilted! Go well Boss Ginimbi. MHDSRIP.”
Details are still sketchy at this point but it seems Ginimbi died in a car accident around the Borrowdale area early Sunday morning.
His car, a US$300k Rolls Royce Wraith, is said to have hit a Honda fit in a head-on collision and then veered off the road.
The car then hit a tree and burst into flames.

It’s not clear at this point how many people were in the Honda Fit and if anyone died from that car. However, from the pictures above its certain that the Honda Fit did not catch fire.
Earlier in the day, Ginimbi had posted a video saying he would be at his elite Dreams nightclub (formerly Club Sankayi) for Moana’s birthday and that he would be driving his Rolls Royce.
Moana was famous for her fitness videos on social media and she featured in Jah Prayzah’s video Munyaradzi earlier in the year.
See the video below.

He was travelling with three friends, Karim, Elisha and the birthday girl Moana.
Tragically, Ginimbi lost his young brother in January 2019 and his mother only in January this year.
Ginimbi, who was no stranger to controversy, had recently made the headlines by buying a Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster for over US$600k which turned heads.
He was also famous for throwing lavish all-white parties to mark his birthdays. Ginimbi was also embroiled in a famous social media beef with Passion Java and it remains to be seen how the latter will respond to this unfortunate incident.
