Party lovers in for busy weekend

HARARE - Party lovers are in for a busy weekend as a number of must-attend gigs are lined up across the country.

Dendera musician Suluman Chimbetu is returning to Manicaland Province this weekend.

Together with his Orchestra Dendera Kings band, Sulu is expected to put Leisure Centre Bonga on fire in the scenic Nyanga town tomorrow.

On Sunday, the dendera crew is expected to perform at Chipinge Country Club.

Joe Nyamungoma, public relations officer for Sulu’s band, said they are returning to Chipinge by public demand.

“The last time we performed in Chipinge was at the 21st February Movement Gala.

“Our dendera fans in Chipinge kept calling us after we showcased a well-polished performances, so we are returning to the town,” said Nyamungoma.

Tonight the band is performing at Harare’s Jazz 105.

Sulu released his debut Ndomusiya Nani in 2007 followed by Reverse Deal in 2009 and he dropped his third album entitled Non Stop in 2010.

The young musician often sings about everyday life and often borrows from his late father’s catalogue at shows.

Chimbetu is expected to share the stage with Selma Mtukudzi at Jazz 105 tonight.

On Saturday, Jazz 105 will be hosting Jabavu Drive.

The 2010 song of the year hit-maker, Josphat Somanje is set to thrill fans at Chikumbamarara Shops in Seke rural area tonight.

Somanje, who is currently topping charts with his ninth album Tele4nie, is returning to Chikumbamarara where he is expected to put H and J Nite Club on fire.

The place is located three kilometres from Ziko shops in Seke and six kilometres from Makoni Shopping Centre in Chitungwiza. It lies between Ziko and Dema Growth Point.

Zora ace Leonard Zhakata, who recently outshined Alick Macheso, Energy Mutodi and Jah Prayzah in Chitungwiza, is expected to rock Rumwe Nite Club in Kadoma tonight.

Tomorrow, the Mugove hitmaker is expected to spread his Zora gospel to Shamva at Cocktail bar.

City Sports Bar is the place to be on Sunday for all the guzzlers in the capital, as the joint is hosting its second edition of the Beer Festival.

Joint proprietor Biggie Chinoperekwei said everyone is welcome.

“Patrons are required to pay $10 at the gate and enjoy free beer inside throughout the night. Even those who do not take alcohol should come for soft drinks,” said Chinoperekwei.

All local beer brands including lagers — Castle, Lion and few imported brands like Vice Roy would be in abundance on this ‘‘blessed’’ night.

The festival commenced last year and it saw a number of heavy drinkers throwing in the towel.

“Last year, we had a successful festival and people failed to finish the beer despite the fact that the bar was fully-packed,” he said.

Local dancing sensation Beverly Sibanda is expected to entertain patrons on the day.

“Bev and her Sexy Angels will entertain patrons on our second beer festival edition. This year, we expect to see doubled the number of drinkers as the bar is now bigger and better,” said Chinoperekwei.

On Sunday, Macheso is also expected to put Mt Darwin Luxury Hotel on fire.
