The video, which has so far amassed over 200 000 views on Youtube, was played on foreign channels including SABC and Channel O, a feat for local musicians.
The event, dubbed “Queen Vee All Black Homecoming” is slated for 1+1 Club at the Long Cheng Plaza.
Queen Vee is expected to continue where she left off in an initial snippet act during the Zimbabwe Music Awards earlier this year.
In an interview with NewsDay, the beauty model-cum-singer’s spokesperson, Farai Chamatowa, said the gig was a sign of appreciation for the support they have received.
“The main purpose is just to say thank you to the fans, both new and old, by giving them an exclusive live performance by Queen Vee, supported by her brothers and sisters in the music circles in the country,” he said.
Chamatowa said the former Miss Zimbabwe will be featured by local celebrities, radio personalities, socialites and an array of top Harare disk jockeys.
“We have a strong line-up of different celebrities attending as well as a few surprise artistes performing on the night,” he said.
“We don’t want to give too much away as yet because some of the acts are meant to be a surprise.”
Last year Queen Vee hosted an extravagant all-white party which was attended by some of South Africa’s most popular celebrities.
Chamatowa, however, said the forthcoming event would not replace the all-white party, but was just meant to appreciate local support.
He said Queen Vee would take the time to work on more music projects set for release before the end of the year.
