. . . Dhuterere, Tocky, Bekezela complete line-up
Blessed Katiyo in Joburg
ZIMBABWEANS living in Johannesburg who are not having a chance of going back home over the festive season will get a taste of home in what is likely to be the biggest Zim music gig of year.
The event will happen at the plush Platinum Lounge near Cosmo City on Saturday 7 December 2019.
Jah Prayzah will lead a cast of on-song artists that include find-of-year Mambo Dhuterere who is rocking the airwaves both in Zimbabwe and in the diaspora with his melodic mapostori tunes.
Afro-jazz crooner Bekezela has been roped in while Tocky Vibes and Jo’burg based Darlington ‘Mhofela’ Tanganyika are also part of the live acts.
Platinum Prince, Ice King, Chad Chellert and Joempiano will perform for those who love RnB and dancehall. Blot who is currently in SA will also make an appearance.
The show dubbed “Shutdown Jozi” has generated so much interest on social media with socialite Zuva Habane being one of the ambassadors of the gig. Mvengemvenge Facebook group admin Melly Mamoyo is also in the mix on the marketing team.
Popular MC Rico Myers will once again be on continuity a task that he ably handled during sold-out Alick Macheso show at the same venue in September.
The Jah Prayzah show is the brainchild of new kids on the block Gauteng North Promotions and JJ Productions SA. Wheelspinners Mr G of Warrior 1 Sound, DJ Firespitter and DJ Kristos will take turns on the turntables.
“We have put the best possible line-up to wrap up the year for Zimbabweans living in and around Johannesburg. We have received enquiries from as far as Durban and Cape Town. Tickets are almost sold out on Computicket and we urge fans to buy online as it reduces congestion on the day,” said Chenjerai Kadzinga on behalf of the promoters.
“There are no rain fears and we have been allocated a much bigger space to cater for the huge crowd that we are expecting,” added Kadzinga.
