Gamu – remember her off of Pop Idol or whatever it’s called? Anyway, following Simon Cowell’s attempts to have her deported*, Gamu Nhengu has survived the experience to release her debut single ‘Shake The Room’ on Gsound Records.

The Zimbabwean-born singer, who was living in Clackmannanshire with her parents but whose reality TV dream was cut short amid the real threat of being sent back to Harare, now plans to carve out a Syco-free pop career.

Debut abum A Love Like This is due out in early summer.

* Of course Simon Cowell didn’t try to have her deported. It was Sharon Osbourne.
