Zhakata dates WeUtonga

HARARE - Zora music star Leonard Zhakata will share the stage with celebrated female bassist-cum-vocalist Edith WeUtonga tonight at Jazz 24/7 in a potentially explosive match-up.

The Madam Boss hitmaker’s manager, Ben Zhakata, said the show was part of their efforts to reach a diverse range of fans.

“Last weekend’s shows were exceptional and we are confident the crew will continue from where it left. We have tried in the past few months to cater for both our urban and rural fans as we try to reach as many of our fans as possible,” he said.

Jazz 24/7 manager Yasini Dhala is confident that Zhakata, who is riding on his latest album Mutunga dzese and Bulawayo-born WeUtonga will deliver a top-class concert.
“We believe in gender balance and will try to get a male and female musician sharing the stage whenever we can, although we are not always successful in this regard because of musicians’ diaries.

“We respect the fact that our patrons may have different tastes.
“Another important aspect to Friday’s show is that Zhakata will be bringing the song of the moment Madam Boss to the joint for the first time since the launch of the album Mutungadzese, and he will be performing at Jazz 24/7 for the first time since it opened its doors,” said Dhala.

On Madam Boss, Zhakata featured dendera music star Suluman Chimbetu and Progress Chipfumo.
The hit, which has been topping the charts for over a month, broke records by becoming the first song to receive over 10 000 votes on the Radio Zimbabwe Coca Cola Top 20 hits in a single week.

Mutungadzese also has other songs  Zvine Mwaka and Moyo Wekutenda which are in second and third position respectively on the National FM Top 20 weekly hits.
After the Harare concert, Zhakata will proceed to Shamva for a show at Tippaz Bar and Night Club on Saturday.

On Sunday, he will join forces with Progress Chipfumo at a family show set for Murehwa Cocktail Bar.
