South African-based Zimbabwean DJ Oscar Mdlongwa, popularly known as Oskido, almost turned his fans numb at Stars Nite Club on Sunday morning as he made them dance and “gym” to the extremes.
Oskido arrived at the club on Saturday evening for a brief appearance but got onto the decks on Sunday at 0130hrs.
The energetic Oskido thrilled house music lovers with his hit house tracks and people danced the night away, with some taking time to teach the unlearned how to boogey.
One or two probably shed some pounds on the dance floor to the rhythm of Ugymapi’weight, a track which literally asks where people could lose their weight.
Oskido was backed by local DJs Dee-Nosh and L-Roy of D’n’L fame, who also put up a great act with their hip-hop and R’n’B mixes.
Those who could not afford the $15 entrance fee still had fun as they partied along outside the club.
When Oskido played his hit track I Believe, the revellers went into a frenzy.
“What’s important is seeing people dancing along. It doesn’t matter where you go, even two people can give you that energy,” Oskido told NewsDay after the show.
He said his group, Brother of Peace would be back next year after a six-year break.
His latest album, which was released on October 10, marked the end of the 10th commandment movement he started a decade ago when popular house music was still selling like hot cakes in stores.
“In the Bible, there are 10 commandments and I have reached the last commandment.
“This means that I will have to work on another brand for my music so my next album will be released when I come up with a new brand,” he said.
Early this year, Oskido performed in Bulawayo with Tira and he will perform there again on December 21.
