Allan Chimbetu reunites with son?


ALLAN Chimbetu on Saturday performed with his son Douglas at City Sports Bar sparking speculation the two could soon be re-uniting.


Although Allan said the gesture was a way of blessing his son who has been leading his Orchestra Dendera Kings for over a year after his father’s departure to nephew Sulumani’s band, rumour has it the two could be re-uniting.

Speaking to NewsDay on the sidelines of the show, Allan refuted the claims and said he wanted to bring more confidence and show his son that he fully supports his talent.
“As you know that blessings always come from parents so as Douglas commences his shows this year I decided to join him on stage as a way of showing my support and appreciation of what he is doing on the music scene,” said Allan.

“I am going to do the same gesture for Sulumani and Tryson showing my fatherly role to them all.”

Meanwhile, their joint performance brought the house down when they gave a top- notch performance taking revellers down memory lane with some of the late Simon’s songs like Magobo and One Way among others.

Douglas effortlessly reproduced his uncle’s dance routines that drove revellers into frenzy as they sang and danced along.

After each song he did not leave out Sulu’s popular “thank you so much” catch phrase which seemed to stir so much excitement in the audience.

The musician also seems to have been enchanted by Killer T’s gun sounds “Popopo” that had followers of the Mbare musician screaming in appreciation.

What almost dampened the show was a technical glitch that saw the show being stopped for over an hour.


  1. the guys is talented but not organised,if he can go back to the drawing board he can steal the show because i believe in his powerful voice which is lacking in all his sons.

    • u r correct Timothy Allan has the voice i used to follow him wen he was playing with sulu you can hear the difference its just that the guy is not organised

  2. If we are talking of Dendera…..there is on way we can live Allan .he was there with the Godfather Simon not all these immitations….So Allan remains the an Icon in the Dendera family

  3. Good leadership madzibaba Allan. Show these young guys what love is. They totally lack this. We never saw this during your time with brother Simon, Naison and Briam. Tell them again to shun media wars. Its the name Chimbetu that will be spoiled. As a father, please guard against this to happen. Show them love brother so that they follow.
