KADOMA hub of entertainment Odyssey Lodge is set to offer revellers value for their money when they host Congolese rhumba music icon Koffi Olomide in April this year.
The scheduled visit of the celebrated Selfie hit maker artiste at Odyssey follows another show to remember by South African musician Makhadzi alongside Zimbabwean Jah Prayzah in October last year.
The popular spot’s events manager Kudzai Chipengo promised revellers in Kadoma and surrounding areas fireworks, come April.
“We hosted Makhadzi and Jah Prayzah last year in October, which was the beginning of summer and we want to close summer with Koffi Olomide in April with two other big headline acts set to be announced soon.
“We love being diverse through change of genres so that everyone can find something to enjoy about at Odyssey. Koffi is a legend in this field, so definitely it will be a show to remember,” said Chipengo.
She also said Kadoma musical festival set for this year on October 14 where several international artistes will perform is another activity lined up for music lovers.
“In terms of other international artistes that we will host, this year’s Kadoma music festival will return on October 14 and will be headlined by international artistes like it was last year with Makhadzi and Jah Prayzah,” she added.
The show comes two years after the rhumba maestro collaborated with Zimbabwean star Roki on the song Patati Patata featuring Tanzania’s Rayvanny.
