Bev, Zoey team up with dancehall stars

HARARE - Controversial dancers Beverly “Bev” Sibanda and Zoey Sifelani have lined up “mutually beneficial” joint concerts with upcoming dancehall artistes.

The partnership was confirmed by Dancers Association of Zimbabwe (Daz) official Hapaguti “Harpers” Mapimhidze who is convinced the two parties stand to benefit from working together.

The first joint concert is set for Super Label Night Club in Harare tomorrow and will feature young dancehall rookies like Ras Pombi Mostaff, Makwikwi and Fire Empress who will share the stage with Apama, Bev, Explosion, Zoey, Magesh, Syndicate Girls, Girls of Peace, Universal Queens, Unique, Malaika, Dangerous Scorpion, Cassamoto, Cassablanca, Blood Sisters, Haranga Queens, Four Angels, La Dolce, New Styles, Spice Angels and Charlizie Queens.

“There are many talented dancehall artistes in Zimbabwe but they are denied opportunities to showcase their talents. That is why we have agreed to team up with them so that we both can benefit,” Harpers told the Daily News.

Harpers insisted, though, that upcoming dancehall artistes would benefit more from the partnership than dancers.

“We want dancehall artistes to capitalise on the huge crowds attracted  by dancers. The upcoming dancehall artistes do not have the capacity to pull such huge numbers of fans to their concerts at the moment,” he said.

Tomorrow’s joint concert will be another opportunity for Apama Styles to demonstrate that the sensational performance he delivered at the Miss Zimbabwe pageant held in Harare on Saturday was no fluke.

The presence of Bev, who was recently fined $100 for violating the terms of her stage licence, is also expected to lure the usual big crowds.
