IT’S all systems go for this year’s edition of the Chibuku Road to Fame finals slated on Saturday at the Glamis Arena.
Dancehall superstar Winky D, Tocky Vibes, Ex Q, Baba Harare and Mark Ngwazi are billed to perform at the event’s after party.
The event, which returns after a two-year-sabbatical, will see 10 groups from the country’s provinces, battling it out.
“All roads lead to Glamis Arena this Saturday where we will witness a thrilling finale as we also celebrate 60 years of Chibuku.
“We look forward to crowning the 2022 Chibuku Road to Fame.
“We have several exciting activities lined up, and several well-known performing artists including Winky D, Baba Harare and Tocky Vibes among others have confirmed their participation at the celebrations.
“Entrance on the day will be free of charge with performances set to start at 12pm,” said Delta Corporation, general manager, corporate affairs, Patricia Murambinda.
Upcoming songbird, Chashe, carries hopes for Harare to win the prestigious award, which was last won in the capital, a few years ago.
Orchestra Zealous, a sungura outfit, will represent Bulawayo, Expressions Band will carry the Manicaland hopes and Hi-Five will be in it for Mashonaland Central.
Other bands to feature at the competition include Thokozani Super Sounds (Mat South) and The Originals from Mashonaland East are on a Zimdancehall ticket.
