Tocky lights up Lion Lager fest

HARARE - Tocky Vibes underlined his growing status as a dancehall star by lighting up the 2014 Lion Lager festival in Harare at the weekend.

The 20-year-old dancehall prodigy gave a jaw-dropping performance at the Delta-organised event held at the Glamis arena, much to the delight of his fans.

Visiting Uhuru from South Africa were put into the shade by Tocky’s performance which made the absence of headline act — Konshens — a non event.

Jamaican Konshens had been billed to perform at the festival but withdrew at the last minute after his government issued a travel warning to Africa following the outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus in some West African countries.

At first fans did not look too pleased with Tocky Vibes queer stage attire and he noticed it — temporarily disappearing from the stage only to emerge looking resplendent.

It was the tonic Tocky needed and the fanswarmed up to him. The Mhai hitmaker gave a splendid performance.

He performed a number of hits before passing the ball to Uhuru.

Most people only knew their hit song Tjukutja hence the crowd was not so impressed when the group performed other unpopular songs.

Ninja President Winky D and Jah Prayzah also reinforced the point that local is best as they gave top-notchperfomance.

Winky D became the star attraction of the night and he performed hit-after-hit with fans singing along virtually every song.

He performed songs such as Musarova Big Man, Controversy and Takaipa Takaipa among others.

Soul Jah Love also did his thing.

The Ndini Uya Uya singer performed a number of songs such as Ndongosimudza Musoro (Gumkum) before roping in his partner Bounty Lisa who also rocked fans.

Other groups that performed include Judgment Yard among others but however the night was not for Shinsoman.

The Mawaya-waya hit maker failed to prove why he is calling himself Dancehall Father, his performance left a lot to be desired.
