Freeman to perform in Cape Town

HARARE - Dancehall “doctor” Freeman is scheduled to perform at the Zula Bar in Cape Town on October 6.

Freeman, who stormed onto Zimbabwe’s entertainment scene with the song Joina City is moving ahead and gaining popularity. He is currently on demand and is one of the most-played musicians at the moment.

His songs are becoming ghetto anthems.

The showcase is being promoted by Dexter Chikerema of DC Promotions and hosted by Rockerzim Entertainment.

Chikerema said Freeman is on demand right now and as a promoter he aims to give people what they want.

“He was here (Cape Town) in April this year and performed at club Chrome alongside other dancehall DJs based in Zimbabwe and Cape Town.

“Freeman is the first dancehall artiste from Zimbabwe to be promoted by DC Promotions due to his popularity. Fans have been asking for his gigs here for some time. He also has hit songs that have made him a household name at every Zimbabwean party,” he said.

The promoter said apart from his Zimbabwean fans, Freeman has gained another fan-base.

“His fans are mostly Zimbabweans but he also has a huge South African following.”

Freeman will have a three-hour show in Cape Town.

“I am planning this show in a manner that it will remain on people’s lips for a long time. Knowing Freeman, I am sure he will give an electric performance.

“Other supporting acts include Empress Tatie, a female dancehall DJ based in Cape Town. Trio Illey Creation, King Yellow and Highway Crew are also included on the list of performers,” he said.

Freeman has two albums to his name namely Tapinda muStyra and Last Man Standing.

The 23-year-old artiste has exciting collaborations with dancehall queen Lady Squanda. He often performs alongside the queen as they belong to the same stable.

Their song Neshungu has been doing well on radio and also on the streets.

Right now his song Music Yemuno which touches on challenges faced by local artistes is making waves on the local dancehall scene.

In the song he is a bitter man asking why people tend to promote international artistes more than locals.

Another song he performed with Cindy Ndiwe Unoita is also making waves on radio and public transport.

Freeman is currently working on his third album.
