THE widow of the late singer and guitarist Andy Brown, Nadine Stoddart and dancehall chanter Jiggaz (born George Tanjani) will today enjoy a stage romance at the official launch of Reggae Gold Saturdays at Red Fox Hotel in Greendale, Harare.
At the gig, both musicians will be backed by The Red Radicals Band that has been assembled by the joint’s proprietor Robert Zhuwao.
Speaking to NewsDay, Zhuwawo, who is also the duo’s manager said he formed the band to improve his stable’s performances.
“Most of our local reggae and dancehall artistes do not perform with live bands which I am saying must be the thing of the past,” Zhuwawo said.
“Artistes must desist from using back tracks and form live bands to be successful in their careers.”
Zhuwao said with such a show he is trying to create a combined entertainment package where people get two acts from one show as they complement each other.
Nadine said she is determined to take her career to greater heights after spending several years as a backing vocalist for many musicians like Mateo, Queen Mashie, Jah Prayzah and Mic Inity, among others.
“I have been rehearsing for this show and urge my fans to come in numbers and enjoy the performance,” she said.
Jiggaz, known for his popular songs MaSister and Coin is one of the first dancehall artistes among the current crop.
Although he has not gotten enough recognition to suit his prowess, he has the talent and experience that is acknowledged by getting slots at high profile gigs like the Capleton, Elephant Man and Mr Vegas tours.
