Sisters' big clash this afternoon

HARARE - Four controversial music divas — two from Botswana and two from Zimbabwe — will clash this afternoon at Harare Gardens in what is expected to be an explosive dance and musical adventure.

Botswana’s “Kwaito Kwasa” queens and sexy dancers Naledi Kaisara better known as Slizer and Charma Gal will battle it with local pole dance-queens-turned-musicians Beverly Sibanda aka Bev and Zoey Sifelani better known as Zoey.

The four will headline this afternoon’s Harare Gardens’ commemoration concert for the late sungura star Tongai Moyo.

The family musical jamboree has all the hallmarks of a thriller and these four “naughty, sexy, provocative” dancers are set to send fans into a frenzy. They all can dance in their own ways and they all can sing.

Red-hot Slizer has already dismissed talk of a contest among the four divas and said she was actually happy to be sharing the stage with them.

“I am not here for competition neither should my participation be a contest. I will not be competing with Bev or Zoey. I am eager to meet Zoey for the first time as I have already performed with Bev.”

Slizer said she is the real queen, “I am the real queen of music, that is why I am performing at three dates during this commemoration.”

“I will not be under pressure at all to outperform others because that is not what I came here for.

“I came here to entertain Zimbabweans, they show their appreciation for my shows every time I am here.”

Like her Batswana counterpart, Charma Gal who has recorded a duet, Dalie Wami, with Jah Prayzah on his latest album Kumbumura Mhute, Slizer has also recorded duets with singer Peter Moyo and Prince Musarurwa.

Working with the local record company Diamond Studios, Charma Gal is also a sensational performer who will shake the stage this afternoon. She has performed in the country under the group Culture Spears of the Kulenyane fame. Like the territorial rivalry between Bev and Zoey, Slizer and Charma Gal are also not the best of friends, artistically as they also fight for dominance back home.

When Bev released her debut album which was produced by Dr Tawanda, Zoey followed a few months later releasing her own, but using the same producer.

In the clubs the two local pole dancers’ competition is so high as both claim to rule the roost on the dance floor.

As a commemoration to a great sungura musician, the late Tongai, the musical package at the Harare Gardens this afternoon incorporates several sungura music acts led by entertainer Alick Macheso, Somandla Ndebele, First Farai and Tryson Chimbetu.

This year, the commemoration concert has an interesting dimension featuring dancehall singers who would ride on what they have dubbed the Tongai Moyo riddim.

Dancehall stars Killer T, Kinnah, Shinsoman and Tocky Vibez will today lead a pack of rising stars in lyrics about the late Tongai as they ride on the popularity of the Zimdancehall genre in Zimbabwe today.
