Cyclone Dyonne was born Dyonne Tanaka Tafirenyika on June 11,1998 in Parirenyatwa Hospital (Pari) Harare.
Dyonne Tanaka in order to remain close to home and be loyal to her family commitments, she attended her local secondary school Girls High School as a Day Scholar in Harare, instead of the boarding options of Chisipite Senior School in Harare, Watershed College in Marondera or Montrose Girls High School in Bulawayo.
Dyonne from her maternal side, comes from an established modelling family. She attended an elite Harare professional modelling studio, and became a protege of Mercy Catwalk Mushaninga. During her modelling career, she achieved great success at a very young age. At 16 years she became Miss Harare Junior (Miss Personality), Miss Teen Universe Zimbabwe, Miss Teen Heritage (1st. Princess).She got an opportunity to study and work overseas with an international modelling agency, but turned down the opportunity due to family commitments.
Dyonne Tanaka is the first born child, and her parents divorced (respectfully remarried elsewhere) during her adolescent years. Being the first born she had to grow up fast and help to raise her siblings whilst attending high school at the same time. She began trading in Designer Fashion and Accessories, and doing corporate modelling and PR work. Whilst attending a Corporate Photo shoot in Mazowe, Glendale she was offered a lift by urban grooves (Afro beats) music artist Desmond Chideme. She took this as an opportunity to receive advise on how to venture into the music industry. Little did she know that she would become Stunner’s trusted confidante in his personal relationship issues. After his rocky toxic relationship and global humiliation in the African Diaspora, Stunner left Olinda Chapel. During this trying time Dyonne was reluctant to leave the country as family arrangements had been made, and stuck by Stunner’s side. They currently have a baby girl Kyra Owami Chideme together. Dyonne Tanaka is currently taking a career break as she raises her daughter.
She has partaken in many social projects like the executive Mayor of Harare's keep Harare Clean initiative. She continues to do charity work with Desmond Chideme.
