Delta gig rocks Chinhoyi

CHINHOYI - After sungura star Alick Macheso’s sensational performance in Chinhoyi on Thursday, the Mashonaland West town had the honour again of hosting dancehall stars Shinso Man, Winky D and Jah Prayzah a day later.

The three popular Harare-based musicians’ show, at Orange Groove Motel, was made possible by Delta Beverages as part of their Campus Night gigs which target students from the country’s universities.

Last Friday’s gig was specifically for students from Chinhoyi University of Technology (CUT).

First on the stage was Romeo “Shinso Man” Anthony whose hit songs Mafans Angu and Magheto Youths sent the packed Orange Groove Motel into a frenzy.

The 24-year-old singer’s scintillating performance set the stage for a night of great music.

After Shinso Man’s spectacular opening performance, it was a must for the next performer to deliver a top-notch presentation and that was exactly what Jah Prayzah did.

Dressed in his usual military outfit, Jah Prayzah left CUT students begging for more.

The lanky artiste’s well-choreographed act elicited endless choruses of approval from many in the crowd who sang along as the Third Generation leader performed several songs from his latest album Tsviriyo.

The atmosphere became even more electric when Winky D took over the stage.

The Kambuzuma-born dancehall star proved once more that he is the favourite of the youths.

When the Musarove Bigman star, whose real name is Wallace Chirumiko, introduced Tendazvaitwa “Lipsy” Chitimbe, there was a near-stampede as male students tried to force their way onto the stage.

The on-going Campus Night gigs, which have already been held in Harare, Gweru and Chinhoyi and will soon take place in Bulawayo and Masvingo, are a build-up to the Lion Lager Summer Festival scheduled for October which will be graced by two international stars.

Nigerian stars P Square performed at last year’s Summer Festival and this year Delta organisers are promising to bring in two international acts.

Fans have a chance to vote for their favourite international act to grace this year’s festival.

Well-placed sources claim reggae stars Busy Signal and Tarrus Riley are getting a lot of votes at the moment.
