Vusumuzi "Vuza" Nyoni (born 21 April 1984, in Bulawayo) is a Zimbabwean professional football player currently playing for KFC Izegem.[1] His position on the field is left-winger. He is nicknamed Prince.

Nyoni was discovered at his team Highlanders FC by scouts of Premier League side Blackburn Rovers. Cercle Brugge, co-operating with Blackburn Rovers, offered Nyoni a trial because they needed a replacement for Brian Pinas who was sold to NAC Breda. A few weeks later, Vusumuzi Nyoni signed a contract for six months. This contract has already been prolonged with two years.

Nyoni currently lives together with his team mate Honour Gombami in a flat in Bruges. It was Nyoni who recommended Gombami at Cercle, and they both recommended Obadiah Tarumbwa. Nyoni is the son of Highlanders gifted left back Dumisani "Savimbi" Nyoni, who played during the famous Bulawayo club's heyday in the mid eighties.

On Wednesday 25 August 2010 Nyoni signed a three-year contract with Germinal Beerschot.[2]
