The couple is just one of the many musical success stories from the satellite town and their show on Wednesday should be a reason to smile for their followers.
According to the organisers of the event, the show has been designed to be a perfect family affair.
Among the plans, there will be no vendors at the show — a move that is aimed at promoting a family environment.
“We have modelled the show in such a way that families can bring in their picnic basket to promote unity among family members,” Josh Hozheri, who is organising the show, said.
“There are very few family set-ups in showbiz and we have decided to start off the year this way.
“The Charambas came onto the mainstream music arena while they were still staying in Chitungwiza and there is no better way to start the year for us as a showbiz industry.”
Hozheri said they were still finalising the supporting acts for the gig.
The Charambas sprung onto the music scene just before the turn of the millennium with tracks like Mhinduro Iripo from the album John 3:16.
Regarded as the First Family of Gospel Music, the Charambas have won numerous accolades with different projects separately affirming their position on the pole of Zimbabwean gospel music.
