After the huge disappointment of last year when two proposed events were cancelled at short notice when promoters failed to secure work permits on time, Tocky’s UK fans have been assured there will be no repeat this time around as all the paperwork is in place.

PHAB Entertainment, the contracted promoters of the forthcoming tour have confirmed that work permits and visas have already been secured and that the tour was certainly going ahead.

“We can confirm that the shows are definitely going ahead as advertised and the artists are in possession of their stamped passports and raring to come to the UK to do what they have been doing better than everyone else back home.

“We are proud as a company to have been accorded the opportunity to be the first promoters to bring such talent to the UK, hence we have made every possible effort to ensure the success of the events.”

Born Obey Makamure, but popularly known by performing name Tocky Vibes, the talented musician has taken the whole of Zimbabwe by storm with his unique, clean but lyrically rich music with a cross generational and social appeal.

The superstar musician has raised the bar so high in the Zimdancehall genre with his clean lyrics and catchy sounds. His music is family friendly and can be played anywhere and for any audience, one does not become apprehensive when playing Tocky’s music around family and loved ones, a quality that has endeared him to his multitude of fans.

Tocky will be accompanied on this tour by Lady Squanda, generally regarded as the queen of zimdancehall due to her versatility and stage presence. Lady Squanda is no stranger to the UK shores, having previously toured the UK successfully.

Squanda’s usually engaging performances combined with the big and mesmerising stage presence of The Ayenda Nenyika hitmaker, Tocky Vibes make this a must attend tour.

According to PHAB Entertainment, all preparations are going according to plan so far and the feedback from the public has been very encouraging, hence the decision to move the Leicester event from the initially advertised Oxygen Night Club to the more spacious and relaxed Streetlife Nite Club which can accommodate up to a thousand revellers.

Fans are also being encouraged to come early to both shows to avoid disappointment and enjoy what promises to be two great nights with the most wanted man in zimdancehall and the queen of dancehall herself.
