He is known for his works in the Creative Industries in Zimbabwe and across the globe, Gilmore ‘Tee' Moyo is back in the country after being away for 10months and still managing to keep his works in Zimbabwe active. In an exclusive Cover shoot with Kwantuthu  Arts Magazine, Gilmore mentions a little about his works in West Africa and also he shared some unique experiences in the Development world and arts of that region.

The Global Citizen who is a Nominee for a Style Icon Award at Zimbabwe Fashion Week Awards 2013 and Won an International Award in the UK during his period of being away, is packed with new projects to be initiated while he is in Zimbabwe. Gilmore is the powerhouse behind the selection of 3 Zimbabwean Designers, Shadow By Sidumiso, Rebelious Klothing and BlinQ by Sheenah, who will be showcasing this August at the Africa Fashion Week in Canada. Moyo also hinted on a musical exchange project he will be working on this June which will see a Zimbabwean artist going to perform in a Francophone country.

The Cover for Kwantuthu  Arts Magazine is due to his incredible works in the development of the arts industry in Bulawayo and Zimbabwe at large. The 24 year old has been working with upcoming and established artists through Hunnar Management Agency, hence representing a few artists across the globe. This feature comes as an acknowledgement of his contributions and desire to seeing Zimbabwean art being taken and consumed globally. "I get excited when I see new and fresh potential that I am able to link up to the next person, who will also do the same with that talent," The Global Citizen highlighted some projects that he will be working on included doing PR for some outside artists, in particular NaakMusiq who is known for his role on South Africa's Generations as MJ and also involving a lot of local artists promotions. "Basically, the idea behind working with NaakMusiq's team, Soil Child and other outside brands is to be able to bring in and take out unique talents. It's just about exploring our capabilities and working harder every day. All this is something we are trying to do at Hunnar Management Agency.'

Moyo covers Kwantuthu Arts Magazine in only local designers, as he termed it celebrating our uniqueness. In the magazine, he is in outfits by Michael Shepard, Unknown Source, Rebelious Klothing , Annie G Couture and The Ndau Collection. He also teamed up with one of Zimbabwe's best photographer – Cyril Ncube and the Editor Littchel Mathuthu, in coming up with the concept. "I believe we have too many talented individuals here in Zimbabwe, hence I thought to myself, why can't the shoot be comprised of a mixed bag of local talented individuals. It is also my duty to help promote sustainable development in the industry," Gilmore strongly pointed out.
