AFRO-FUSION group Mokoomba gave their fans an explosive goodbye with a stunning performance at Book Café on Friday.
Being their last show before they leave for their debut US/Canada tour, the group was determined to give their followers a jam-packed farewell package.
Despite the World Cup football fever and chilly weather, loyal fans came in their numbers and filled the venue to the brim.
Tina Watyoka, tasked with warming up the stage, did not disappoint and set off to light up the place with some of her hits including Kana Zvaramba and Regai Ndiende.
When Mokoomba finally came on stage, fans were repaid for their support with an exhilarating showcase of talent and creativity.
The group displayed the true definition of Afro-fusion by cleverly mixing African beats with various other genres which included salsa and reggae, creating a powerful music cocktail.
Well co-ordinated instrumentation, powerful vocals and beautifully choreographed dances was evidence of their performing prowess.
Popular hits like Njoka and Nimukonda set the pace and toned the mood for a party.
At one point, they dropped their instruments and performed an acapella song, Nyaradzo, which proved quite popular with the fans.
The award-winning group kept the tempo high until the end of the show leaving the crowd hungry for more when they left the stage.
Band manager Marcus Gora expressed his gratitude to all the fans who attended the show.
“I am delighted that all these people braved the weather and came to support the boys,” said Gora.
“These guys work hard to produce great music and I just urge fans to keep on supporting them.”
One of the fans, Calvin Chikonodanga, said that he was thrilled with the performance and was full of praise for the group.
“I believe Mokoomba is one of the most talented groups on the continent and they have never disappointed me on stage,” Chikonodanga said.
Mokoomba received the Zimbabwe Achievers Award earlier this year in the UK.
