The former showbiz couple met at the popular Chill Spot Records at Matapi Flats in Mbare. Their related poor backgrounds brought them closer, and it reportedly brought happiness to their music careers.

A year later, the two got married. “I had nothing but music and love to keep me going. My queen, Bounty, showed me, unconditional love. She would visit me and talk to me about life, giving me hope that there was something to live for,” Soul Jah Love said to the media then.

The two became an item, featuring at live performances together. Their affair became sour, leading to divorce but they remained friends, with tattoos of each other engraved on their respective bodies. Born Lynette Lisa Musenyi, she is known for her song “Basa Rangu”.

Their seesaw relationship concluded after five years when Soul Jah Love accused her of being impregnated by another man. “He started assaulting me with his hands. I initially tried to defend myself fearing he would hurt me until my nails broke,” Bounty Lisa recounted then.
