Trust Khosa

AFTER a successful 2023 season, which saw Mookomba tour more than 15 countries, the group wants to get the same love from their home fans.

They will wrap up the year with a concert at Rainbow Towers on December 22.

Big in Europe, but still underrated on home turf, the camp believes they still have a lot of work to do and win the hearts of locals.

Band manager, Marcus Gora, still has faith that everything will eventually fall into place.

“We have lined up a show at the Rainbow Towers on December 22 as we wrap up the year.

“The show is a bit special for us as we want to thank our fans for their support. 

“Of course, we have successful tours overseas but we still have home fans at heart.

“We urge them to show up in numbers and ensure that they celebrate with us. We have a successful album (Tusona: Tracing the Sand) which is still doing well,” he said.

Gora conceded that it has taken them years to be appreciated on home soil.

“It’s a situation that we have accepted but we hope it’s a process that should be followed.

“All big stars in Zimbabwe worked hard to be appreciated at national level and we have been working on that since 2008.”

The manager, who also runs First Floor Gallery, hailed international promoters and festival organisers for having faith in their brand.

“We have a successful international tour of more than 15 countries.

“It was quite a memorable year where we toured many countries and interacted with different people.

“We also raised the Zimbabwean flag high.”

Some of  Mokoomba’s major highlights of the year were their performance at the WOMAD Festival (UK) in June as well as their tour of Europe, which took place in October.

The group performed in such countries as Germany, France, the UK and the Netherlands.

Meanwhile, tickets for their show are pegged at US$10 and are already on sale at Rainbow Towers and the First Floor Gallery.
