Marondera comes alive with Batai Munhu


THE usually sleepy town of Marondera lights up tonight with a charity musical festival coined Batai Munhu MuWinter at Rudhaka Stadium.

The festival, some of whose proceeds will be donated to various charity organisations in the Mashonaland East capital, will also mark the beginning of the winter season’s entertainment in one of Zimbabwe’s coldest provinces.

Despite the low temperatures and the open air venue, it is the irresistible line-up that includes the combination of the moment — Sulumani Chimbetu and Jah Prayzah — accompanied by Madzibaba Nicholas Zakaria, House of Stone, Mathias Mhere and Diamond Musica.

Sulu is undoubtedly one of the most sought after acts in Zimbabwe after the release of his blockbuster Syllabus.

From the album, the collaboration with Jah Prayzah, Sean Timba is still a hit long after its release in November 2012.

Jah Prayzah himself is also on a crest with his latest Tsviriyo released earlier this year.

Mathias Mhere is one of the few gospel artists who have changed the face of local gospel music with a different beat.

House of Stone and Diamond Musica will offer a different flare with their reggae and rhumba respectively.

Simba Chatima, one of the organisers, told NewsDay all the plans were in place for the showdown.

“All is in place and what is left is for the event to kick off. The gig is a massive one and one of the few to be held in Mashonaland East Province,” said Chatima.

“The main objective of the gig is to raise money for charity organisations, among them Musha Wevana and Kukura Neshungu.”
