People started flocking into the venue on Friday night as the hotel had a special offer for its clients for the Tuku show.
The special offer saw the hotel getting fully booked. Tuku, who had on Friday night performed at Carnival City, South Africa, managed to put up a splendid show.
Chief operating officer for Hotels and Leisure Africa, which operates Montclair Resorts and Casino, Lewis Chasakara, hailed Tuku for the good performance.
“Once again we managed to have Tuku performing and it was an amazing performance that has not only left a mark at Montclair, but across Nyanga as a whole. Earlier on, we had had a golf tournament and an awards ceremony for winners.”
“Mtukudzi has earned his fame and deserves it. This event was mainly to assist in the marketing and advertising of the hotel and since Tuku is our tourism ambassador, we found it more appropriate to combine the event with the legendary musician’s show.”
Mtukudzi turned the crowd wild when he sang Hear me Lord, Bvuma and some tracks from his latest album Sarawoga, which has so far sold amazingly.
Tuku’s fans were thrilled by his two-hour performance.
“We had a great time during Mtukudzi’s performance, especially at such an amazing venue. We drove from Mutare just for this event and it was worth it. Hats off to Tuku,” said one of the fans, Martin Nyaundi.
“Tuku is a hero. Thank you, Tuku, and keep the music industry growing,” said another fan, Piniel Simbanegavi.
