The wheel-spinner, who in the past performed with international artists on different events worldwide, has introduced the international barricade system on local concerts.

In an interview with Newsday, Dj Phat Beatz, who did part of the organising of the Victoria Falls Carnival, said his project was not only for economic interest, but a move aimed at bringing an international experience to the local entertainment scene.

“Entertainment has always been a part of me, although I have taken some time out from being a disc-jockey. My current trade majors in event consultancy, which plays a big role in ensuring order and appropriate planning of events,” he said.

“It all gets back to the exposure I have had on international concerts and events that are characterised by order and safety. This is what I am aiming to achieve and make our concerts memorable ones,” said Chamatowa.

He urged event organisers not to jeopardise the safety of artists and revellers by hosting below standard events with miniature security.
“Zimbabwe has what it takes to host international shows, but promoters usually invest little in security structures and at the end of the day they are found wanting.
“If the reluctance from the corporate world continues then it is going to be difficult for us to get where we want,” he said.

Chamatowa, who played at President Robert Mugabe’s daughter Bona’s wedding, made headlines when he bagged the Best DeeJay International Award in Malaysia when he was in South Africa in 2011.

The talented wheel-spinner has also shared the stage with several international artists, including American David Guetta, Liquideep and Bob Sinclair, while representing Zimbabwe at the international Winter Music Conference (WMC).
