Zahara to bring full band

HARARE - Organisers of South African songbird Zahara’s show set for Harare international Conference Centre tomorrow night say they have already sold many advance tickets despite the counter-attraction posed by music legend Oliver Mtukudzi’s anniversary concert.

Ordinary tickets for the concert are going for $10 while the VIP section will attract a $20 entry fee.

Devine Assignments director Biggie Chinoperekwei, who is organising the event, told the Daily News that everything pertaining the concert was now in place.

“Zahara is expected in the country tomorrow afternoon. She is travelling with her full band which comprises 10 members.

“She will also take the opportunity to launch her new album here for her local fans,” said Chinoperekwei.

The popular South African songbird will be supported by several local acts including Jah Prayzah, Suluman Chimbetu, Mathias Mhere and Fungisayi Zvakavapano-Mashavave.

Zahara, who was born Bulelwa Mkutukana, has been a regular performer in Zimbabwe over the last few years.

She commands a huge following in Zimbabwe particularly for her hits Lengoma, Loliwe, Destiny, My Guitar, Brand New Day, Shine, Umthwalo, Xa Bendingena Mama, Thekwana, Away, Ndize and Incwad’encane that featured South Africa-based Zimbabwean artiste George Munetsi.

Zahara’s popularity in Zimbabwe is mainly because of her debut album Loliwe that won her many fans all over the world. The album sold more than 200 000 copies in her home country alone.
