Sungura musician Alick Macheso this Sunday holds a special family which coincides with a birthday party for five of his band members.
The event, which the revered entertainer described as a big Sunday, will be held at Club Las Vegas in Southerton.
“It’s a big Sunday. It is a rare event to us at Mberikwazvo and the fans as well. So we are inviting our fans to come and enjoy the experience, it’s time for them to have time with families and their loved ones,” said Macheso yesterday.
Macheso’s publicist Tichaona Makahamadze said this is the beginning of an initiative meant to celebrate their own.
He said Sunday’s family show will see a massive joint birthday party for five of his band members who were born in the month of May.
The event will also see lucky fans walking away with several prizes by naming the members with birthdays at the event.
This means the names of the birthday ‘boys’ will be kept a secret and revealed during cake cutting and those who would have predicted correctly will get prizes.
“It’s an idea meant to celebrate our own. We are family as Orchestra Mberikwazvo and if we don’t celebrate their birthdays no one will do that for us.
“We have organised birthday celebrations for five of our members who were born in May on May 5 at Club Las Vegas. It’s a rare and special show because apart from celebrating the life of these members, we are also going to have lots of prizes for our lucky fans.
“The idea is we will not reveal the names of the birthday boys and we want fans to predict that on the day of the show. They will do so at the show as we invite them on stage and name the five they think have birthdays. We will then reveal the names and the lucky ones who would have predicted correctly get their prizes,” said Makahamadze.
Makahamadze said the idea behind such concepts is also to promote unity among band members.
“This will not stop there; we will continue doing this for others at Mberikwazvo. It’s an idea that we believe will continue uniting us as a group. We are a happy family and we just want to maintain that, showing each other love.
“The decision, however, is that we just look at those who have birthdays close to each other and we organise a big event like the one on Sunday,” he said.
