Jamaican dancehall star Elephant Man arrived in the country early on Thursday morning ahead of his once-off show scheduled to be held at Glamis Arena on Friday night.
An official with C&A Entertainment, organisers of the show, confirmed that the Jamaican musician, popularly known amongst his fans as “The Energy God” is in the country and ready to give a unique dancehall concert.
“Elephant Man arrived yesterday aboard Kenyan Airways and we picked him up at the airport at about 1:20am,” said the official.
“The conversation we briefly had with him after his arrival signalled that he is definitely ready and prepared to light up Zimbabwe.
“Tomorrow (Friday) day we are expecting an exciting act and all reggae lovers should come in their numbers to witness ‘The Energy God’ in concert.”
The Willie Bounce star will headline today’s gig which will feature an impressive cast of local stars including Winky D, Gusspy Warrior, King Shady, Sniper, Riccky Fire and Templeman.
Wnky D, affectionately known by his fans as “Biggieman”, will obviously not stand aside and watch “The Energy God” rule his territory.
Since his breakthrough into mainstream music circles Winky D has proved to be the household name of dancehall in Zimbabwe.
He has so far gained popularity amongst his fans because of his lyrics and unique style that suits his Maninja brand.
Elephant Man will have a point to prove and will probably showcase some of his stage gimmicks when performing which include jumping, running and sometimes climbing onto stage props and monitors.
The show is expected to draw a huge number of dancehall lovers because of the comparatively low entrance fee of $5.
Organisers of the concert also said there would be an after-party at Rainbow Towers for all those who would want to get up close to the Jamaican.
