THE usually quiet town of Marondera has come to life thanks to a popular joint opened last December called The Legend Sports Diner.
Located at Nyameni Shopping Centre, the place offers all types of entertainment to the fun-starved masses of Marondera.
The place, which is proving popular to patrons, has already played host to musicians such as Peter Moyo, Extra Kwazvose and Pablo among other established artistes.
“It is a good place, this venue is certainly bringing light to Marondera as there are a lot of people who come to have fun,” Peter Moyo said.
Moyo said he was happy to have been receiving frequent calls from Marondera and promised to do performances there at least once every month.
tor of the place, Daniel Masaiti, said he mooted the idea after realising that many people from high density suburbs were starved of fun.
“We plan to host many artistes because we want to bring fun to Marondera. We listen to the demands of the people, if they say they want Winky D or Jah Prayzah, we will bring them the musician,” he said.
Masaiti added that the place has an adjacent hall where all the gigs were staged as they did not have enough room in the main bar for shows. The adjacent hall carried about 800 patrons.
The place has a smoking area which is detached from the usual drinking bar and Masaiti said this was because he had realised that some of the revellers were non-smokers and had to respect their rights by offering them space with enough ventilation.
Since opening doors to the public on December 7, the place has been enjoying a full house and plans are already underway to bring Suluman Chimbetu during the upcoming Valentine’s Weekend.
Some of the patrons who spoke to NewsDay said the place offers alternative for all kinds of entertainment lovers.
“This place has brought life to our area.
“Most of us cannot afford to go into town in search of fun so we just walk there,” a reveller, Tafadzwa Rungoni said.
