Chibuku Road to Fame begins Saturday

HARARE - Chibuku Road to Fame Mashonaland East finals will light up Marondera Saturday.

The annual music talent identification programme is a partnership between the National Arts Council and Delta Beverages through their Chibuku brand.

Chibuku Road to Fame is one of the longest running grassroots talent identification initiatives in Zimbabwe which has unearthed several top stars since its inception in 2001.

Last year’s winners, Terry and the Bliss are in the process of finalising their album launch, while previous winners at both provincial and national level such as Tanga Pasi and Romeo Gasa are riding high on the local circuits.

“We believe the arts in general and music in particular is an important sector in the well-being of society,” said Patricia Murambinda, Delta Beverages’ marketing manager.

“Good music creates employment and adds to our enjoyment of life. Our Chibuku brand is proud to be the title sponsor of the Road To Fame, which helps unearth raw musical talent, and ensure that artistes get the recognition they deserve.”

Provincial finals of the Chibuku Road to Fame will run from today up to the national finals on September 28. Over 100 groups from the country’s ten provinces will battle it out to be crowned national champions.

National winners will walk away with $5 000 cash prize and a recording contract fully paid for by the title sponsors Delta Beverages.
