Arcadia set to explode

HARARE - Eminent yesteryear radio and television personalities Tichafa Matambanadzo — popularly known as Tich Mataz and Kudzi Marudza are set to clash at the C and A Entertainment organised old skool bash dubbed Biggest Old Skool Gig 2012.

The gig will be held on September 29 at Arcadia Hall in Harare.

C and A Entertainment director Clint Robinson is promising fireworks and said the gig is going to be the biggest in the country for the year 2012.

“This is an all-star line-up of Djs, it is like the Brazilian national football team but the only difference is that they will be on the decks. A big colourful crowd is expected from all walks of life and there will be lots of giveaway prizes,” said Robinson.

The prominent disc jockeys are expected to play alongside Dj Munya, Kimble Rogers, Barry Weber from Bulawayo, Luwa Luwa the ghetto superstar, Jadie Jam and Durall 3D among others.

“These are mature DJs for mature people, let the music play,” said Robinson.

The entertainment company will offer free drinks to fans on the night so as to keep the morale high.
“Buying a ticket upon entry, the revellers stand a chance to win a laptop and blackberry phone among other prices.

Recently, C and A Entertainment surprised the showbiz fraternity when they organised a concert which comprised all local artistes for the first time.

The concert run under the theme “Local is lekker.”

Over the years C and A Entertainment specialised in bringing Jamaican artistes in the country which include Sean Kingston, Mavado and Agent “Assassin” Sasco among others.

However Simad Entertainment director Simba Madziwa said local promoters now prefer local artistes to foreigners as a way of minimising risks.

Madziwa said the rate at which international artistes come to Zimbabwe is declining steadily.

“Most promoters are opting for local musicians to foreigners. We used to rely on the Caribbean countries particularly Jamaica because they are affordable.

“Most of the meaningful artistes in Jamaica have been performing here the likes of Mavado, Sean Kingston, Mr Vegas and Elephant Man among others,” said Madziwa.

He said since they have exhausted Jamaicans musicians, the only way left is to recycle them.

“We are now recycling artistes from Jamaica and South Africa which is risky to promoters as people already know them stage wise,” he said. - Kaleen Gombera
