JAMAICAN reggae and dancehall artiste Capleton is expected in the country today ahead of his show at City Sports Centre tomorrow.
The King of Fire or King Shango, as he is affectionately known, is expected to land at Harare International Airport just before 6pm.
After arrival, he will proceed to Chitungwiza Aquatic Complex where he will make a guest appearance at a school leavers’ party.
In the evening, a welcome party for King Shango will be held at Sports Diner International where DJs Templeman and Smiley will lead the proceedings.
Sound groups that will take turns to entertain fans on the turntables at the party include Fyah Lynx, Legendary Sound and award winning Mighty Ducks.
Tomorrow’s show at City Sports Centre will see the Jamaican musician getting into the thick of local showbiz. He will share the stage with the likes of Wallace Chirimuko, popularly known as Winky D or the Ninja President, and Donald Chirisa aka Sniper Storm.
Other local artistes to perform at the show are Guspy Warrior, Lady Squander, Jiggaz, Lady B and Freeman.
Turntable experts like Templeman, Abra Simz, Smiley and Gary B will also grace the main event.
Sound masters Judgment Yard and Mighty Ducks will spice up the event. This is the second time for King Shango to perform in the country after his debut visit in 2010 when he staged shows in Harare and Chitungwiza.
Show organisers said everything was in place for the show.
“We are excepting a good show. Capleton has promised to do his best and has committed himself to a busy schedule during the tour. He fell in love with Zimbabwean fans on his debut tour,” said one of the organisers.
