Zim dancehall, urban groovers set to rock UK

HARARE - The biggest names in Zim dancehall and urban grooves are set to rock their UK fans in three joint shows scheduled for May.

Shinsoman, Seh Calaz, Guspy Warrior, Freeman, Soul Jah Love and urban groovers Trevor Dongo and South Africa-based Enoch ‘Nox’ Guni head to the UK hard on the heels of a sell-out UK tour by rising Zim dancehall singer Kelvin Kusikwenyu aka Killer T.

Dubbed the “Summer Fiesta”, the artistes are set to perform in the UK from May 2 to 4.

The artistes will start with a concert in Luton, before heading to Coventry and then closing with a concert in Manchester on the last day.

The musicians head to the UK faced with a mammoth task of maintaining standards set by  Killer T early this month.

The Mbare-bred chanter rocked the UK last month at the acclaimed Zimbabwe Cup Clash dancehall fete on March 29, at the Dunstable Leisure Centre where he gave a polished act which earned him more unplanned concerts in the same country.

Upon returning from the UK, the Tirikumhanya singer said he was shocked by the positive response he got.

“It was popopopo everywhere and ndakavajambisa (I thrilled them). At one concert in Manchester, I pocketed £300 ($503) on stage from excited fans,” he said.

Killer T told the Daily News that he had set the ground work and did his best in marketing Zim dancehall in the UK.

“Ndakano representer Zim dancehall ikoko (I did my part in marketing Zim dancehall) and now almost everyone in the UK knows that the genre is existing and is very exciting,” he said.

Seh Calaz and Shinsoman will be performing in the UK for the first time.

Nox, a seasoned urban groover, has staged several shows in the UK and has previously held successful concerts in Europe as well.
