Sulu rocks Zambia

LUSAKA - Suluman Chimbetu and the Orchestra Dendera Kings livened up the imposing Mulungushi Conference Centre on Saturday night with a highly-energetic performance that left members of the audience asking for more.

Sulu was invited by the Zambian Tourism Board through the Zimbabwe Tourism Authority (ZTA) to perform at the second edition of the two-day Lusaka Carnival which kicked off on April 26.

The performance by the energetic musician and his band brought the much-needed consolation to Zambians who are still mourning veteran soccer commentator Dennis Liwewe who passed away on April 22 at Levy Mwanawasa Hospital.

Due to Liwewe’s death, the first day of the Lusaka Carnival street procession, which was supposed to take place on Saturday, had to be cancelled as the legendary commentator was being put to rest.

Sulu and his band showcased the famous dendera dance which won the hearts of the crowd.

As soon as they got on to the stage, Zimbabweans who were present took to the dance floor where they were joined by scores of animated Zambians.

ZTA chief executive officer Karikoga Kaseke, who was present at the concert, refused to be left out of the fun. He joined the band on stage as they were performing the famous Sean Timba.

Kaseke was joined on stage by Felix Chaila, the managing director of the Zambia Tourism Board but the Zimbabwean tourism boss proved too good for his Zambian counterpart.

The performance of the song One Way impressed the crowd that also witnessed performances by Mampi and Cleo the Ice Queen who showcased her powerful rap skills.
