About MaKupsy

My name is Mercy and I am a woman of many talents.  I have two alter egos; MaKupsy and Fitness Bae.  These personas have brought out different titles in my life namely;  The Blogger. The Fitness Enthusiast. The Traveler. The Naturalista. The Digital Marketer.  The Content Creator.  The Mother.

Motherhood is the biggest part of my life. I have a beautiful daughter Miss Kupsy (Kupakwashe).  She is the love of my life.  She is a ray of sunshine and a double dose of happiness.  She is actually part of the reason I decided to start blogging along with many other reasons.  I hope one day she will read through this and get to see some of the things that happened in my 20’s going forward.  I am positive blogging is going to be a lot of fun.

My blog name is a combination of the word Amai(mother) but shortcut for Amai is Ma combined with my daughter’s nickname Kupsy, hence MaKupsy.  My blog is not set in stone, it is a kaleidoscope of articles and you will definitely find something that will capture your eye.

Blogging has presented different opportunities for me in the past few months.

Appearances and Interviews

Women Wine & Words Festival 

November 2018: I had the honor of being a panelist for this event and spoke on the topic of Body Positivity.

The show, a full on celebration of creative women through music, poetry, theatre and art, has been staged at the Intwasa festival for the past five years and has been a hit among festival goers. This event has clearly been admired by Harare’s leading theatre venue – Theatre in the Park through Rooftop Promotions who have partnered with Intwasa to stage the show in Harare.

ZiFM Stereo

July 2017: I was invited for an interview by ZiFM Stereo; the hottest station in Zimbabwe!  I was live on air from 6-7am during the Breakfast Show hosted by MisRed, Captain Awesome and Marc Poz.  ZiFM is the first private radio station in Zimbabwe, targeting a modern, progressive aspirational listener.  You can watch part of the radio interview from here.

I’ve since appeared on a different show in relation to sharing my thoughts on various topics concerning relationships.

  1. Hello Hottie! Thank you for visiting my blog and following. I can totally relate to having so much to say, while friends struggle to keep up. Writing a blog is the perfect way to express all the things we want to without feeling like we’re talking too much. Everyone is talking about something in the blogging world and you are in good company.. I am now following you and can’t wait to see where your journey takes you. Let the talking begin! 🙂
