Jazz 105 hosts All-White Party

HARARE - Jazz 105 in Harare is hosting this year’s edition of an All-White party tonight, an annual event that will pit Suluman Chimbetu supported by different artistes.

This year the dendera musician is supported by a jazz outfit — Jabavu Drive.

Yasini Dhala, Jazz 105 manager said patrons should wear white colours on the event though the dress code will be relaxed.

However, prizes will be on offer for those who will keep the dress code.

“The all-white dress is all about partying and being merry with one another.

“It is an occasion for love and the colour will be a symbol of togetherness, happiness and peace,” said Dhala.

He urged revellers to bring out their best outfits tonight.

“It promises to be a night filled with fireworks as the event is growing each year — this is a fourth edition of this party and we are glad to work with Suluman,” said Dhala.

Alick Macheso and Orchestra Mberikwazvo are returning to Jongwe Corner in Harare for another sizzling performance tonight.

On Saturday, the sungura ace is expected to thrill Oasis Nite Club in Masvingo, before dating Dulibadzimu Stadium in the border town of Beitbridge on Sunday.

Last week, Macheso made headlines in local newspapers after he reportedly went on a collision course with his senior manager William Tsandukwa over the re-admission of troublesome nimble-footed Peter Kagomera into the band.

Macheso is reportedly willing to give the dancer another chance to prove himself if he changed his behaviour.

Speaking to the Daily News yesterday Tsandukwa said he does not have any sour grapes with the dancer.
“I do not have powers to stop Macheso if he wants to take Peter back, we are all workers while Macheso is our boss,” said Tsandukwa.

Tsandukwa said it is senseless to give the talented dancer a second chance since Peter’s behaviour leaves a lot to be desired.

“Peter haachinje, akambotorwa naBev zvikambodzingana, akazomutora futi zvikada kurovana futi saka unoti munhu iyeye.

“As a fact Peter is on police wanted list, he terminated his community service so even if we take him back, police will arrest him again on stage....and the media will continue writing that Macheso dancer was arrested on stage,” he said.

Raunchy dancer Beverly Sibanda aka Bev is expected to put Castle Bar at the Harare Showgrounds on fire tonight before showcasing her gyrating dances at Chivavaya Nite Club in Guruve tomorrow.

On Sunday she will lead her newly-recruited Sexy Angels members at Mbare’s Shambare Bar in Harare.

On Tuesday, Bev unveiled new group members after her original members deserted her earlier on to form their own outfit Twinkle Light Queens.

The original members who parted ways with Bev were identified as Hither Samanyika, Chandelle Chidyagwai and Mercy Makuvire.

Speaking to the Daily News, Bev said the dancers were becoming-big headed while the “girls” said Bev was failing to respect them.

On Sunday all roads will lead to the serene Harare Gardens where another Tongai Moyo memorial show will be held. Unlike the first show held on October 14 in Kwekwe which only pitted Alick Macheso, Progress Chipfumo and Peter Moyo, a number of musicians are going to share the stage tomorrow.

The cast will include First Farai, Daiton Somanje, Jah Prayzah, Tryson Chimbetu, Leonard Zhakata, The Charambas — Charles and Olivia as well as David Machowa aka Apama among others.

The Moyo memorial show will kick-off at 11am and the after-party will be held at City Sports Bar where Tryson Chimbetu will thrill fans till Monday.

Douglas Chimbetu will be at Big Time Gardens in Chivhu and on Saturday he will thrill fans at Dzongayi Complex at Gaza, Chipinge.

On Sunday, the Chimbetu cousin will serenade fans at Musadaro Night Club in Hotsprings. The young Chimbetu will be active over the week as on Monday he will be at Roots Night Club at Nyika Growth Point and on Tuesday he will be at Chademana Night Club at Jerera Growth Point.  

On Thursday, the first of November he will excite at Ngundu Night Club.

The Mai Nga hitmaker will perform in Chegutu on Sunday and Gwenzi hide out in Chegutu. Sports Diner International in Harare is hosting Oliver Mtukudzi tonight.

Recently Tuku was booed off stage by angry fans at the Tourism Night held at Gwanzura Stadium in Harare’s Highfield suburb.

Tuku had belted out “unpopular and too soft songs” which did not go down well with his ghetto fans.
Gospel couple Charles and Namatai Chipanga of Chalenam Rhythms will be performing at the Protest Arts International Festival tomorrow in Harare Gardens.
