The multiple award-winner shared the poster advertising the gig on social media Facebook with the hashtag of her latest offering, Country Girl.
“Zimbabwe, Harare are you ready HICC? #Country Girl is on,” she wrote.
Some of the musician’s followers commented on the post, saying there were primed for the show.
“We are ready! We mali we zukanotiki …undenzantonina. Harare welcomes you Zahara (the Country Girl),” Gerald Mugande wrote, quoting lyrics from one of her songs.
Zolani Kaleni expressed hope that Zahara was going to “rock”, while Virginia Mugovera said: “Zahara, you are welcomed to Zimbabwe. I like your music very much. Keep it up. We are ready for the queen of music, Zahara. Your music is so exciting I like it.”
Tarwireyi Tirivavi even urged Zahara to take up Zimbabwean citizenship.
“We are ready and waiting and considering giving you citizenship. You do love this country better than some Zimbos,” he said.
The Loliwe singer is billed to share the stage with Afro-fusion group Mokoomba, Sulumani Chimbetu and Jah Prayzah, among other supporting acts, during the concert organised by Devine Assignments in conjunction with a local radio station.
Zahara is currently riding high with her 13-track third album Country Girl, which tackles issues of self-discovery, jealousy, love, players and the evils of money.
