HARARE - Tonight, all roads lead to 7 Arts Theatre in Avondale, Harare where men-of-the-moment Winky D and Jah Prayzah will share the stage in a potentially explosive event dubbed The Ignition Concert.
The two high-riding musicians will be supported by another equally talented artiste Lady Storm, real name Lyn Magodo.
Magodo, who made her name after featuring on Jah Prayzah video Eriza, as a dancer in school uniform will be backed by her group, Swagga Band.
Winky D is expected to perform his hit album Gaffa Life (Kickstape) which includes plug tracks such as Disappear and Mirror among others.
On the other hand, fans are still not yet getting enough with Jah Prayzah’s blockbuster album Jerusarema.
Macheso dates PaFio
ALICK Macheso is hoping to reclaim lost ground in 2016, starting with his first gig of the year tonight at Highfield’s Joy Centre.
Located opposite Gwanzura Stadium, the open-air joint is quickly gaining traction among partygoers and Macheso wants to open his year on a high note.
“This is our first show at Machipisa in over a year, so it should be special,” said the star’s manager Lucky Macheso.
“And coming from three weeks’ break, fans should expect a show full of energy. This is our year. We have been planning a lot behind the scenes.”
Joy Centre manager David Mudzudzu was ecstatic with the way the joint has become a favourite for many.
“We usually offer free shows to our patrons but this time we are charging a nominal fee to meet overheads.
“Basically, we are trying to promote artists because getting stage time is very tough. They are competing for crowds so this is a great platform for them,” said Mudzudzu.
