The two-in-one event will see local football champions Dynamos clash with
their arch-rivals Caps United, while an array of Zimbabwean and Chinese artistes will also take turns to entertain the crowd.

In an interview with NewsDay, CFZ deputy chairman Zhao Zivanayi, who has adopted a Shona surname, said as the Chinese Federation of Zimbabwe, they wanted to come up with many
initiatives to unify the local and Chinese people.

“We are committed to working together and playing together. Last year, we launched an intercultural concert called Zimbabwe Has Got Talent and this we have extended to
top football embracing each other’s cultures,” he said.

The event’s spokesperson, Rumbidzai Matinanga, said preparations for the event were at an advanced stage.

“Rufaro Stadium is the place to be this Sunday. Our artistes have promised their best
performances at the event,” Matinanga, said.

“The artistes will perform in three segments: thus during the opening of the event, when Dynamos and Caps Unite are on half-time and after the match.”

Among those billed to perform are Leonard Mapfumo, Zimbabwe College of Music
drama groups, University of Zimbabwe Chinese Choir and winners of the Zimbabwe Has Got Talent concert, a project of CFZ in partnership with ZLG.

Two DJs from a local radio station will also be rocking it on the turntables.
