Dubbed “Countdown to Album Release”, the gig will also see Faheem Somanje and his Pengaudzoke crew perform as curtain raisers.
The Pengaudzoke frontman is also expected to sample new songs off his forthcoming second album to be released in a few months.
Legends Sports Diner proprietor Daniel Masaiti said the gig is meant for the Madhawu hitmaker to perform new songs, as part of the countdown to his latest album.
“It is always an honour to host Macheso in Marondera, for he is the crowd favourite. We hosted him on Christmas Day and he promised to return for a gig meant to sample new songs mainly,” he said.
“We are happy he has fulfilled his promise and on Saturday we will witness that as the countdown to album release is already underway.”
Macheso is expected to join Pengaudzoke on stage on the song Nhaka, which they did together.
Meanwhile, Macheso’s fans have been anticipating the latest album, whose release was expected sometime late last year.
Orchestra Mberikwazvo publicist, Tich Makahamadze yesterday said the album was almost ready.
“The album will soon be out. We are in the studio putting up final touches. As far as the countdown gig is concerned, we are going to Marondera this weekend to meet our fans,” he said.
“We are ready for the gig and the fans should expect a live performance of all the new songs off the forthcoming album.”
