A young man has caused quite a stir with his rather unusual name. His first name is “Sex” and to make matters worse, his last name is “Machine”.
According to the mechanic who hails from Marondera, Zimbabwe, he was christened such by his father Paul Machine Mvere.
“That is my name. I cannot deny it. I went to Tapfuma Primary School and Rukweza High and that is the name I used,” he said. “Sometimes I call myself Mike, a name that also belongs to my uncle. “My father is the best person to explain why he gave me such a name.”
The Standard reports that the name Sex Machine appears on his EcoCash , but it is truncated. On the Ecocash platform, the man’s name appears as Sex Machine.
“I had to devise means to alter my name so that my clients find it easy and respectable,” he said. “I am happily married. At first my wife could not believe my name, but she adapted to it. She is Mrs Machine. My father calls me Mike or Sex depending on where we are and who is around,” he said.
