About Denise Zimba
Denise was born on the 10th of November 1988. She is a very talented young lady and above all loves acting (on a lighter note, she hopes to be “the Black Tomb Raider”).
As much as acting comes first to Denise, music has always aroused deep passionate emotions within her; as she now pursues her musical career as a solo recording artist.
Denise started recording music officially at the age of 13 and she has always loved the entertainment world growing up. If she wasn’t at the forefront of the entertainment scene, she would have probably found herself somewhere behind the scenes (Producing, writing or teaching). To Denise, entertainment is the only option and she cannot see herself doing anything else.
Denise has her own entertainment company by the name ‘Zimba Entertainment’ which handles her personal brand.

- The question everyone is asking, though; is why did Denise leave?
