Speaking to NewsDay on the sidelines of the show, Nyeya, born in England, said he has a passion for developing music and sport in the city.
Currently, he is working with rising hip-hop artiste, Mike Kata, whom he said will be releasing an album soon.
“I am happy to be home, I have decided to host this gig so that I could network, mix and mingle with youths in Zimbabwe especially here in Bulawayo. I am working hard so that I start giving back to my community by hosting shows,” Nyeya said.
He said he was targeting artistes who can make an impact in their society through music, adding that not only Bulawayo-based artistes will benefit from the initiative.
However, Nyeya could not be drawn to divulge how much he had planned to invest in budding and promising talent, but instead urged artistes to persevere and work hard for them to attain desirable results in the music industry.
“Success is all about perseverance, hard work and getting connected, but the key thing is for Zimbabwean youths to work together and support each other especially for music to grow in the city,” he said.
Merrymakers, who thronged Horizon Pub and Grill, were later entertained by the club resident DJs, Joe Tha OG and Lucasto among others.
Meanwhile, on Friday night a breathtaking play, Tale Without a Name derived from Yvonne Vera’s novel left theatre lovers captivated as the theatrical piece was showcased at Bulawayo Theatre.
The novel was turned into a play, which was produced by Raisedon Baya and Stanley Makuwe and was directed by Memory Kumbota.
The play featured Zenzo Nyathi, Novuyiso and Gift among others.
