Vimbai started her career off at just 15 years old as an actress in Zimbabwe, in a short film titled “Who’s In Charge”, with the movie featuring at the Zimbabwe International Film Festival. She also went on to play a lead role in Zimbabwe’s first soapie titled “Studio 263”. Her talents did not stop there, while completing a Bachelor of Social Science in Politics, Philosophy and Economics at the University of Cape Town, she continued modeling doing major campaigns for Zain, MTV Base, and Bio Oil to name a few.
Her appearance on Big Brother Season 6 captivated the attention of viewers and media execs across Africa, leading to her being quickly snatched up to host Africa's first ever daily entertainment news show, Star Gist on one of the continent’s most widely viewed networks – Africa Magic. She has since grown as a host, a personality, an influencer in African entertainment and a media icon. She is currently the most sought after female host across the continent.
Vimbai is currently the host and Executive Producer of Star Gist, after successfully heading the move of the production from Johannesburg to Lagos, Nigeria.
