Alexandra Shungudzo Govere, better known as Shungudzo, is a recording artist and songwriter from Los Angeles, California. She was born in the United States and reared in Zimbabwe.
Kerry “Krucial” Brothers spotted her in 2010 and signed her to his new label Krucial Noize with singer-songwriter Mateo. Here, she released her debut mixtape, Love is 4 Suckaz/I’m a Sucka 4 Love, under the name Andra. She had planned to release her debut album on the label in 2011, but it never materialized, so she went independent instead.
With placements on Simco artists Little Mix and Louisa, she returned as a songwriter in 2016. Further collaborations with Jessie Ware, Victoria Monét, and The Chainsmokers followed.
Govere resurfaced as an artist under the moniker Shungudzo in 2017 and 2018, while continuing to work as a songwriter, appearing on tracks by Bantu, BC Unidos, Rudimental, Jonas Blue, Paul White, and Oliver Heldens, as well as an artist spot on the Fifty Shades Freed OST.
