Prosper was born in Murehwa and grew up herding cattle and goats. He started his primary education in 1983 at a local primary school called Mutowani and he completed the primary school in 1989.
He is the fourth born in a family of four boys and four girls.
It was in 1989 after finishing primary education when he moved to Tafara, the eastern high density suburbs of Harare, which has bred some of Zimbabwe’s second generation of sculptors like Tapfuma Gutsa and Dominic Benhura and Amos Supini, to mention a few. He started secondary education at a local high school from 1990 to 1993 where he finished his O’levels and attained six subjects before moving to Mabvuku high school.
He started sculpting between 1993 and 1994 as an assistant to a friend called Canaan Ngandu who was by then living in Chitungwiza, a high density town situated about 40km south of Harare. During his spare time he would work on broken pieces of stone from his friends sculptures, turning them into birds and other wild animals. He believes its the natural world around us that inspired him to become a sculptor.
It was during 1998 that he began working full time on his own and he managed to sell his art works to galleries overseas and to some local ones including the National Art Gallery of Zimbabwe, Matombo Gallery, Gallery Africa, to mention a few. He had also sent sculptures to places abroad, such as The Royal Netherlands, USA, the UK and even to countries in the Middle East.
He is still working on stone sculpture and he will continue as it makes him a living. He is married and has one child called Michaelangelo who is 10 years old and doing grade 5 (2015).
