Nyovest, real name Refiloe Maele Phoolo, was under pressure to cancel the show following xenophobic attacks in South Africa. Local group Djembe Monks fronted Nyovest in a scintillating performance and Harare dancehall chanter Winky D took the stage after.
Djembe Monks kept the crowd on their feet for close to two hours belting their famous songs.
Winky D pulled a shocker thereafter as many revellers could not believe that it was him. Clad in an Egyptian chasuble looking like a pharaoh, he got the crowd amazed for a while until the disc jockey played his famous hits.
The first track pulled the crowd closer to the stage and the crowd sang along with the dancehall artiste.
The Bhachi neJean singer did not disappoint the crowd with his various tunes.
He was followed by the main act. Nyovest put up an electrifying performance.
Hit track Doc Shebeleza thrilled revellers. The crowd went mad and danced all night. The artiste, famed for his song Phuma Kimi, thanked the people of Bulawayo for the support they gave to him and promised to return and stage more shows in the city.
