JAH Prayzah, probably one of the most revered lyricists and of course video scriptwriters, takes his new DVD to Chitungwiza tonight.
Interestingly, he does so alongside Tocky Vibes, another fiery lyricist, and of course the granddad Oliver Mtukudzi who is also riding on the release of his latest album Mukombe Wemvura.
According to the organisers of the event that apparently kicks off a series of Christmas gigs, this should be the perfect present for Chitungwiza music lovers.
“Music keeps evolving and I am sure this is one of the most formidable line-ups for this year. Tuku is a seasoned performer, Jah Prayzah is one of the most energetic artistes while Tocky is just a marvel and probably the best find this year,” said the spokesperson of the organisers.
“This is most likely to be the shutdown gig for Chitungwiza and that Tuku and Jah Prayzah have not yet taken their new releases to that area simply gives us the ingredients of an explosive show.”
Meanwhile, theatre lovers and some who prefer minority arts, today will be an interesting affair at the opening of the Protest Arts International Festival at the Nicoz Diamond Theatre.
Savannah Trust director Daniel Maposa said this year they have concentrated on quality instead of quantity.
“With the way that the programming has come out people should expect the best to come out from Zimbabwe, South Africa and Mozambique,” said Maposa.
“We have selected some of the best locally and regionally and people should come and enjoy some of the best because of the emphasis that we put on quality.”
The festival kicks off with directors’ workshops at the venue with performances starting at 1pm.
