The potentially intriguing show which is pegged at $5 will see the Vigilance Music and Conquering Family front men presenting their new projects in the eastern border city for the first time.

Mutare fans will have a feel of Winky’s arguably most popular songs contained in his Gafa Life Kickstape released last year such as Not Nice, Disappear, Survivor, Woshora and Gafa Life.

Chibaba, as Soul Jah Love is affectionately referred to by his fans, is also expected to be at his best and play songs from his inspirational album, Dai Hupenyu Hwaitengwa.

As expected, the two lads are expected to blend the new tracks with their oldies that catapulted them to glory such as Mafeelings, Tiki Taka, Taitirana, Ndini Uya Uya and Handichabatika.

Both albums are impregnated with mature and didactic lyrical content that captivates not only Zim-dancehall fans, but every music lover who appreciates art.

Organiser of the show, Partson Chimbodza of Chipaz Promotions, said the show was special in so many ways and urged pleasure seekers to come in their numbers.

“The two high riding artistes will be sharing the stage for the first time in Mutare and that makes the show a unique and special one. Both of them have carved a niche for themselves in the music industry and are top performers who cannot disappoint. The two artistes are ready for the show and we would like to urge fun lovers in Mutare to come in numbers and enjoy,” said Chipaz speaking from his Harare base.

The duo will be supported by celebrated wheel spinners, Templeman (Godfather) and Garry B (Mixmaster).

Meanwhile, granddad of Zim music Oliver “Samanyanga” Mtukudzi will be performing live at the same venue on Sunday alongside talented gospel and Zim-dancehall musician, Fungisai in a family show. Manica Post
