Organisers of the annual show Delta Beverages yesterday posted on their official social network site Facebook, Delta’s Lion Lager Zimbabwe, about the developments.

“So now you know! Uhuru from South Africa will be setting the stage on fire with their golden beats at the Lion Lager Summer Fest. The dancing in their Y-Tjukutja music video is off the hook and you could be getting down with them in just a few short weeks,” read the post.

“More big (sic) artist announcements coming this week. Don’t forget to buy your $5 tickets at Delta Beverage Centres nationwide, Avondale Shopping Centre and Harare Gardens. And watch our page for ticket giveaways.”

The group was in the country in April where they performed at the Independence Dance Concert courtesy of Bass and Style in conjunction with Divine Concert Sound that was held at Belgravia Sports Club in Harare.

Uhuru is under the Kalawa Jazmee record label made up of four individuals, namely Maphorisa (Themba Sekowe), Mapiano (Nqobile Mahlanu), DJ Clap (Sihle Dlalisisa) and Xeli (Xelimpilo Simelane)

The group is responsible for many hits such as Mafikizolo’s Khona and Happiness, DJ Zinhle’s My Name Is, Dr Malinga’s Jika, DJ Vetkuk vs Mahoota’s Not Yet Uhuru, Via Orlando and Stokvel among others.

They have also produced three songs with Zimbabwean artiste Willom Tight off his forthcoming album Manifesto.

Delta Beverages are reported to be planning to bring in Jamaican dancehall reggae artiste Busy Signal as the main act at the festival.

However, the One More Night singer last week dismissed the reports saying there was no contractual agreement between him and Delta Beverages.

The month of October is likely going to be a memorable one for bingers with another beer festival on the cards for October 24 and 25.

Dubbed the Sunset October Beer Festival, the fete will be held at the Sunset Arena with the major highlight so far being the subsidised alcohol prices.

Modelled around Germany’s Oktoberfest, according to the organisers, the festival is aimed at reviving many business opportunities that function whenever a festival of its magnitude is progress.

“We are planning big. This is the first edition and we are not giving room for false starts. We want this to be the biggest beer festival in Southern Africa and that means tourism for the country among other business gains over the duration of the festival,” said one of the organisers.
