Njanja Express to represent Harare at Chibuku finals

HARARE - Njanja Express, an upcoming sungura group, outshined eight other groups during the Chibuku Road to Fame Harare Provincial championships, held in Warren Park on Saturday.

The Mbare-based outfit, which will represent Harare in the Chibuku Road to Fame national finals to be held on September 27, walked away with the $1 000 first prize. Wachemachema landed second position and the accompanying $500 cash prize while third placed Motion Crew walked away with $300.

Njanja Express leader Mark Ngwazi, who was number two in the same competition last year, was delighted to win at the second time of trying.

“Last year we failed to make it because my mother Rudo Kashiri-the secret behind my success — was not present at the event. But this year my victory was obvious because my mother attended the provincial finals.”

The other competing groups were Orchestra Chaizvoizvo, Nemashukwe, Ghetto Express fronted by the former Leonard Zhakata bassist Bakania “Bakaz” Teka, Sukachile, Tinevimbo and Afro Spirit.

Dendera musician Suluman Chimbetu performed at the Chibuku Provincial finals which were graced by officials from Delta Beverages and National Arts Council of Zimbabwe.

Patricia Murambinda, the Delta Beverages Marketing Manager, told the Daily News that Suluman would be the main performer at the national finals on September 27.

“As usual, the finals of the Chibuku Road to Fame will be held in Harare at Glamis Stadium on September 27 and the event will see Suluman Chimbetu once again entertaining revellers,” she said.
