MUSICIAN Obey Makamure, better known as Tocky Vibes, celebrated his birthday in a unique way by unveiling collaboration singles to his fans who attended the event.
While it is a common practice that the person celebrating birthday should be presented with gifts, Tocky Vibes has defied the order.
The chanter unveiled five singles to his fans who converged at the Hellenics Sports Club to celebrate his 27th birthday on Sunday.
The songs include Amai vaJohane featuring Jah Prayzah, Mukwasha featuring Guspy Warrior and Dadza D, Vanongonditaura featuring Madam Boss, Ruregerero featuring Edith WeUtonga, Racism featuring Kumar Fire and Mari Yese featuring Poptain.
Speaking to H-Metro, Tocky Vibes described the celebrations as unique and special.
“We used to see people getting gifts on their birthdays but I have decided to something unique and different.
“I am a musician and I have engaged a number of artists for collaborations before which we did and I decided to release them on my birthday. It is something that I will be doing going forward. While they give me gifts, I will be giving them music,” said Tocky Vibes.
This is despite the fact that Tocky Vibes has released a 16-track album with some of the songs on rotation on different radio stations.
“That couldn’t stop me and I don’t have a problem with the fact that I have released an album this year. This one is meant to celebrate my birthday with my fans.
“The support and love I get from fans made me come up with this decision. The response at the weekend was overwhelming,” he said.
The birthday bash saw a number of musicians coming to support him, including Enzo Ishall, Ricky Fire, Stunner, Andy Muridzo, Poptain and Madam Boss among others.
The artistes had short performances while a number of DJs were on rotation to entertain the crowd that turned up.
“I am happy with the support that I got from fellow musicians. It was refreshing to see them on stage even for those short performances and just their appearances.
“To all those who attended I really appreciate and this helped me celebrated the birthday in style. Turning a year older is a blessing and that is also the reason I decided to come up with a different theme,” he said.
