Charma Gal to grace Hwange gig

HARARE - Tswana songstress Charma Gal, who collaborated with Jah Prayzah on the hit Dali Wami, will add a foreign flavour to a star-studded cast of artistes set to perform at the Makomo@5 gig tonight in Hwange.

The gig, meant to celebrate Makomo Resources’ fifth anniversary in Zimbabwe’s mining sector, will feature top local artistes who include Jah Prayzah, Suluman Chimbetu, Alick Macheso, Killer T and Fungisayi Zvakavapano-Mashavave.

Eumo Promotions, the company that is organising the celebratory gig on behalf of Makomo Resources, told the Daily News that they had roped in big artistes to reflect the magnitude of the occasion.

“Last year, we only had three big artistes in the form of the Charambas, Oliver Mtukudzi and Alick Macheso but this year we have a star-studded cast.

“We are commemorating Makomo Resources’ five years of business in Hwange through music and dance. At the same time, the company is also giving back to the community through bringing big artistes to perform in this entertainment-starved area,” said Eumo Promotions spokesperson Eusabia.

He added that gospel music stars Charles and Olivia Charamba who had consistently performed at the annual event since it was launched five years ago would miss tonight’s gig because they are currently on tour in South Africa.

On their way from the Makomo@5 gig, Jah Prayzah and Killer T, who are arguably the most popular artistes in the country at the moment, will make a stopover in Bulawayo on Saturday night where they will share the stage at Amphitheatre.

Also in Bulawayo tomorrow, Black Motion, a South African house music duo considered to be among the best in their genre across the Limpopo, will make their maiden performance in Zimbabwe at Hartsfield Stadium.

Black Motion, which has worked with industry icon Oscar “Oskido” Mdlongwa, is made up of percussionist Thabo “Smol” Mabogwane and Robert ‘DJ Murdah’ Mahosana, who both grew up in Shoshanguve, a township about 20 kilometres north of Pretoria.

After the Makomo@5 concert, Macheso will perform in Kwekwe tomorrow where he will perform at a family show at Mbizo Barracks before proceeding to Harare where he will share the stage with Killer T at Borrowdale Race Course at a fundraising event being hosted by the Zimbabwe Republic Police.
