Fyah puts up scintillating perfornance


Jamaican reggae and dance hall artist Anthony Martin, aka Lutan Fyah, put up a scintillating performance at Kebab Centre in Newlands on Friday night.

The Babe Come Over hitmaker brought the house down after some impressive performances by supporting acts including Mic Inity, Potato and Iwata among others.

Youngsen Kudita, aka Chirandu, a member of the organising team expressed satisfaction with the show.
“Everything went according to plan and we are happy with the turnout,” said Kudita.

“The supporting acts performed well and Lutan Fyah’s entrance onto the stage put icing on the cake,” said Chirandu.

The performance proved once more that reggae artists present better acts at live performances than other artists.

In the past two years Zimbabwe has seen an upsurge in the number of foreign artists touring the country many revellers have been left with varied views after being shortchanged.

The backing band for the night, Chirwa Ites, proved their mettle with a polished presentation that left multitudes of merrymakers content.

Anthony Martin, who jetted into the country on Sunday had been warned not to short-change Zimbabweans during his performance.

Zimbabwe Tourism Authority chief executive Karikoga Kaseke last week advised the Jamaican musician not to give music lovers a half-backed perfomance as Zimbabweans deserved better.

“Lutan, make sure you do not execute a shoddy job here because Zimbabwean artists can embarrass international artists by simply outshining them,” said Kaseke.
