Rebecca Malope eclipses Dhewa

SOUTH AFRICAN gospel music queen Rebecca Malope last Saturday eclipsed Tongai Moyo in the Harare Gardens with most fans preferring to watch her on stage at the expense of the sungura artiste.

As a result, the much-publicised Afrofood show turned out to be a non-event after Malope attracted most fans, leaving Tongai Moyo with a handful during the retail shop’s grand draw.

Despite the fact that the show was for free, most people sprang to take a glimpse of Malope leaving Tongai with a few people who were hoping to win prizes at the Afrofood grand draw.

The two musicians shared the same venue — Harare Gardens — albeit on far ends.

But Dhewa, as he is affectionately known, managed to keep the few fans on their feet during his time on stage.

He first went on stage in the morning and came back in the afternoon where he staged the final performance, which marked the end of the event.

Alexio Kawara who came on stage in the afternoon did not disappoint.

He introduced himself on the stage with the popular song Shaina before taking the fans down memory lane with songs from his previous album. Bulawayo-based dancing group Kawala staged a splendid performance, which left many people calling for more. They performed the chicken dance much to the delight of AfroFood customers and fans that came to witness the grand draw.

A 42-inch’ Plasma Samsung television set, six four-plate stoves, fridges and a Mazda BT50 were won at the competition. TH
