Miller Draft beer lovers on Friday partied all night long at the Miller Winter Shutdown Party held at Fusion Café where the brew was in abundance — free of charge.
The event dubbed the “Turn up the Night party” was graced by United States-based Zimbabwean DJ and producer, Simukai Mandizvidza, popularly known as Abra Simzz.
The Miller Winter Shutdown Party has become an international event, where local DJs get the opportunity to showcase their talents while at the same time Miller Draft beer would be promoted.
“Miller parties are the best because they seem to be giving us a chance to see how much talent we have in Zimbabwe when it comes to deejaying. Some of them (DJs) are even better than the so called international DJs,” said an excited reveller.
He said Zimbabwe was getting notorious for bringing international performers who constantly disappointed and did not match local DJs.
Another reveller said the Miller parties were good for professionals who would, after a long and busy week, come, relax, dance and chat with a disciplined crowd.
“This month we chose Abra Simzz to perform at the Miller party simply because we aim to promote our local DJs despite the fact that Miller is an American brand,” said the Miller brand Ambassador, Chuckie Ayisha.
He said Simzz had become a household name as he had raised the country’s flag high through his various productions like Voicemail, featuring Jusa Dementor and the popular Rise up Zimbabwe featuring internationally acclaimed ragga artist, Red Rat together with Zimbabwe’s own Winky D.
Party people — most of whom were dressed to kill — got an opportunity to sample the Miller brand for free.
Ayisha said Miller Draft beer was an American brand that had become popular in many African countries, including Zimbabwe.
“We are going to host Miller parties monthly and we will make sure that the events will also become a platform to promote and showcase local talent,” he said.
