Sulu, Jah Prayzah return to Rangers

Crowd pullers Suluman Chimbetu and Jah Prayzah will share the stage at Rangers Bar in Westlea on Sunday in a family show meant to celebrate Orchestra Dendera Kings publicist Joe Nyamungoma’s birthday.

Sulu’s weekend programme, however, starts tonight at Mushonga Bar in Harare’s Kuwadzana suburb where he will share the stage with Peter Moyo until midnight before proceeding to Dandaro Inn in the Harare Showgrounds where he will play alongside Zimdancehall star Soul Jah Love.

Tomorrow the Nyuchi singer will perform at Chinhoyi High School.

Zimdancehall Awards on tonight

The country’s best performers in the Zimdancehall category will be honoured tonight at the Zimdancehall Awards to be held at the East End Hall in the Harare Showgrounds.

Music fans have been debating on whether Tocky Vibes, who won two National Arts Merit Award awards on Valentine’s Day, will dominate the Zimdancehall Awards as well. The Mhai singer has five Zimdancehall nominations.

Winky D was the toast of last year’s edition of the awards where he walked away with four gongs.

The “Ninja President”, whose real name is Wallace Chirumiko, won awards in the Best Social Message, Best Live Performer, Best Video and Choreography, Best Artiste 2013 (male) categories while Shinsoman walked away with the Song of the Year Award for Mawaya-waya.

Organisers of the annual awards, who are expecting 3500 plus crowd, have lined up a star-studded cast of performers that includes Seh Calaz, Freeman, Lady Squanda and Ras Pompy.
