Popular Star FM presenter, Phathisani Sibanda, will this Saturday rekindle his affair with the ghetto when he plays host emcee at the third edition of the Madirirano set for Takashinga Cricket Club in Highfield.
It will be the first gig Phathisani will be emceeing in the ghetto after a while as he is now mainly committed with corporate shows.
However, the Kambuzuma bred Phathisani said he felt at home and honoured whenever called at ghetto events.
“I am a ghetto boy so I feel more at home, ndisu vacho veku jecha so I am more than comfortable because I’m interacting with the people I know about.
“Madirarano is the biggest ghetto event that brings together people from all walks of life in the ghetto and this just shows you the power of the ghetto,” he said.
Phathisani, who will be dressed by top clothing shop 4 May at the occasion, praised event organiser Simba Bodyslam for a wonderful concept.
“Simba Bodyslam has done well in making sure that quality entertainment is not something we only hear on the other side of town but in the ghetto as well.”
Top artistes and deejays like Alexio Kawara, Seh Calaz, Hwindi president, Judgement Yard, Dollarbill, Selekta Base, Iroq and DJ Mzoe from Bulawayo among many others are billed to perform at the event.
Simba Bodyslam added that all was on course for the show.
“Our aim is to only get better with every event and I am sure come Saturday we will have a better show than the previous one.
“Preparations are going well and come Saturday we urge people to come in numbers and early, it’s a free party,” he said.
