Tuku to perform on plane

HARARE - Legendary musician Oliver Mtukudzi will perform for Fastjet customers during its flight from Harare to Victoria Falls tomorrow, as part of the budget airline's tourism promotional strategy.

“This is revolutionary for us as well. There is no better interaction with fans than meeting and sharing with them, mid-flight, music from my new album!”

“We are proud to be associated with Fastjet who are bringing locals and international tourists to the Victoria Falls,” Mtukudzi said.

“Thereafter, I will be at the Elephant Hills Hotel on Saturday at 8pm for a full performance with my band.”

Tuku promised to deliver an acoustic set comprising tracks from his new album Hany’ga (Concern) which was officially launched on February 7 at his imposing Pakare Paye Arts Centre, in Norton, about 40km from Harare.

Fastjet Zimbabwe spokesperson Faith Chaitezvi said Tuku’s in-flight performance was part of the airline’s promotion of Victoria Falls, domestic and in-bound regional tourism.

“We are passionate about promoting domestic and regional tourism to Zimbabwe, and what a better way than to leverage innovative events in partnership with a musical legend,” said Chaitezvi.

Fastjet operates 24 weekly flights between Harare and Victoria Falls, three weekly flights between Johannesburg and Victoria Falls as well as four daily flights between Harare and Johannesburg.

When adding the airline’s popular flights between Harare and Dar es Salaam, it amounts to a tally of 78 weekly flights in Zimbabwe.
