The packed audience during a live performance dubbed Tinashe and Chashe was not disappointed.
The show started off with a top notch performance by Makura who wowed the audience with his tantalising voice singing the popular track Hello. The show was highly interactive with the audience clapping and singing along.
The crowd went ecstatic when Tinashe welcomed Chashe to the stage. The two constantly exchanged keyboard playing roles depending on whose song was being sung.
Chashe undoubtedly gave a great show with the audience dancing, clapping and singing along as she churned out track after track. She sang popular tracks Dhii, Moyo Muti and Zvekupenga which has of late received great airplay on local radio stations.
“This audience was just awesome and full of energy. In fact, it’s the best audience I have ever performed for so far. It was such an exciting moment,” said Chashe in an interview with NewsDay.
She added that she was looking forward to performing at the upcoming Zimbabwe Achievers’ Awards in London this month on May 9.
Makura, who was once based in Malaysia, said he had such an awesome time performing with Chashe.
“I was based in Malaysia before, but I can assure my fans that I’m back in Zimbabwe. They can expect more from me right at home, including a single that I’m currently working on which will be out soon,” he said.
The two were supported by a talented group of backing vocalists, a guitarist from the Netherlands as well as Zimbabwe’s Ndoita Sei star, Simbarashe Chimombe, aka Simz 27.
Chashe explores the themes of love, and mixes both English and Shona lyrics to create her own style of Afro-pop.
