It's a 'Tight' affair tomorrow

HARARE - Afro-fusion artiste Willom Tight says sharing the stage with his first born son Gary is one of the highlights of his career.

The Tafara-based duo will perform at the Book Café tomorrow in a show that has been dubbed Titambire Nyere.

Willom and Gary did their first joint concert at the same venue in December last year.

“You know it feels great to be sharing the stage with my own flesh and blood,” Willom told the Daily News yesterday.

“The special day is taking long to materialise. I am looking forward to sharing the stage with my very talented son who is a great source of pride for me.

“I have finished recording my album in South Africa and on Friday my son will be welcoming me home hence the theme of the show, Titambire Nyere, said Willom who has been based in across the Limpopo since late last year.

The Ndinoda Wangu singer, who recently released a 15-track album that features Malian music superstar Salif Keita, has promised to sample new songs during tomorrow’s concert.

“Apart from sharing the stage with my gifted son, Friday’s concert will also be a special one because I will perform some of my new songs,” said Willom.

Gary, who thrilled music fans during Suluman Chimbetu’s birthday bash at the Book Café on Tuesday night, told the Daily News that playing on the same stage with his popular father would be a moment of great inspiration.

This is the second time we have collaborated on stage and I am so happy and honoured to perform on stage with my dad,” said  19-year-old Gary.

“We will use the time on stage to have fun as a father and son. It will be a great show that is for sure.”

The upcoming artiste said a joint recording is not on the cards yet.

“We have not yet decided on recording together for now but we promise to share the stage a lot from now on,” said the former Churchill High School student.

The father-son concert follows Willom’s signing of a contract with South Africa-based Shamiso Music and Entertainment; a company that helped him re-record his two hit albums, Ndinoda Wangu in 2000 and Hodzeko in 2003.
