Dondo, Maskiri for Jam Session

HARARE - Impala Subway Crooners front man Sam Dondo is joining Maskiri and Edith WeUtonga tonight at City Sports Bar’s Jam Session.

Jam Session platform strives to accord every artiste, seasoned or upcoming, a chance to briefly shine without proper rehearsals before a sizeable crowd.

Dondo manager Luckmore Muzava said they have heard of the Jam Session and decided to participate.

“It is a good programme and we hope it will boost our fortunes,” Muzava said.

Some of the artistes to showcase tonight include Nutty Bee, Rasta Kwasa, musician Dino Mudondo, Ba-Shupi, Talking Guitars, Howard Pinjisi, Assegai, Top Sungura, Chikomana Shaddy, Madiz, BV Labien and Ian Chigodora, among others.

Dondo is riding the crest of the wave of success through his debut album Dyara Minamato which comprises plug tracks such as Zviuya Zviri Mberi featuring Jah Prayzah, Kanganwa Nhamo and Peka Uyende among others.

On the other hand, rapper Maskiri, real name Alishias Musimbe, like dancehall chanter Soul Jah Love, is trying to spruce up his image by incorporating both ubuntu and Christian values.

Maskiri, who came to spotlight in late 2002 with the track Zverudo zvaramba which features Roki, surprised all when he dropped a badboy tag to become a man of sober habits in 2014.

The 33-year-old musician got circumcised in 2014 for health reasons and also joined the band-wagon of musicians who flock to modern mega churches.

He joined Walter Magaya’s Prophetic Healing and Deliverance Ministries before releasing song Mbiri Kuna Jesu that praises Magaya.

Maskiri stormed on the musical arena through controversy. He attracted limelight when he released a controversial album titled Blue Movie.

The album carried songs with dirty lyrics and he used to clash with fellow artistes such as Nasty Tricks whom he once exchanged blows with.
