Power failure blights Konshens gig

HARARE - Jamaican music star Konshens delivered a stop-start performance at the Castle 120 Year Summer Celebrations Event held at Old Georgians Sports Club on Saturday night thanks to a faulty generator.

Konshens, who could not hide his frustration as the generator went on and off during his performance, was the headline act at the event held to celebrate 120 years of the Castle brand.

Despite the hiccups, the Rasta Impostor singer soldiered on and delivered some of his well-known hits, including the hits Do Sumn, Gal Dem A Talk and Good Girl Gone Bad.

But the intermittent power failures clearly took away the oomph from his highly-anticipated act.

The Jamaican star performed with a 12-member SubKonshus band that included his brother deejay Delus and rising Jamaican dancehall star Darrio Johnson.

The event, that celebrated 120 years of the Castle Lager brand, also featured award-winning Beatenberg from South Africa, Marco Maggiore (Italy) Ivan Mazuze (Mozambique) and several local artistes who included Winky D, Africa Revenge, Hope Masike and Evicted.

Apart from the misfortunes that blighted Konshens’ set, the rest of the performances on the night went according to script.

As expected Beatenberg, who delivered a stunning performance at the Harare International Festival of Arts in May this year, wowed Zimbabwean fans once more with another solid performance.

Norway-based Mozambican saxophonist Ivan Mazuze, Marco Maggiore (Italy) and local stars, Africa Revenge, Hope Masike and Evicted impressed the fairly big crowd with well-structured presentations but the star of the night was without doubt Winky D.

They don’t call him Zimdancehall president for nothing!

As has become the norm, whenever he shares the stage with international acts, the Musarova Bigman hit maker was at the top of his game.

His well-coordinated set and exceptional interaction with the audience proved once more that he is the standard bearer in Zimdancehall.

Even though the faulty generator muddied the waters at the end of the event, the Castle 120 Year Summer Celebrations event was fairly well-organised.

The gigs went accordingly with artistes sticking to a pre-determined time table.
