Fans will have to part with $150 for VIP and $15 General Access, while those purchasing online tickets will pay $100 and $10 respectively.

“I can now confirm that air tickets for Mukanya and the rest of the band members have now been secured, it’s now a reality the legend will be in Zimbabwe. Grab your tickets to avoid disappointment,” wrote Vava on his Facebook page.

The homecoming show will also see local greats including Oliver “Tuku” Mtukudzi, Sulumani Chimbetu and Winky D rubbing shoulders with Mukanya on stage.

In an earlier interview with NewsDay Life & Style, Vava said Mukanya’s Welcome Back Bira was the best stage for him to reconnect him with his local fans.

“We are excited that Mukanya will be performing in Zimbabwe after more than a decade’s absence,” he said.

A fierce critic of former President Robert Mugabe’s government’s because of its unflattering human rights record and corruption, Mukanya commanded a huge following in his home country.

Reputed as one of Zimbabwe’s finest musicians, he has over the years churned out music that resonated with his countrymen at a time when pointing an accusing finger at the government was almost regarded as treasonous.

Since the beginning of his career in the 1960s, Mukanya was renowned for speaking out against the excesses of former President Robert Mugabe’s government something he carried into independent Zimbabwe, placing him on a collision course with the authorities.

  5. Please journalists be serious. Mugabe came into power in 1980.Before that he was actually advocating for black majority rule and admonishing the settler regime.His music has been consistent thereby putting him ito a collision course with Ian Smith’s government and later on Baba Bona. get your facts correct.

    1. KKKKKKK in fact Mugabe could not have conferred him with a doctorate had they crossed path. Mukanya only started crossing paths with The goblin around 1999

  15. Kkkkkk….How ironic! In a country touted by local and international media as full of paupers,opposition politicians are saying there is 90 percent unemployment, most citizens said to be surviving on less than a dollar a day…you find an artist charging US$150 per person for a ticket…Really? An amount that is equivalent to a month’s salary for most people? Question is , with such dire statistics where is the money coming from? Is the media feeding us wrong information about poverty in Zimbabwe? Are we rich or poor as a nation? Indeed those who can afford must go its their money but heey…pakaoma. This country of mine is full of contradictions.
