The event will feature musicians Trevor Dongo, Simba Tagz, Stunner and Junior Brown among others.

The album is made up of 18 tracks.

“I regard this album as my best work ever. I took my time working on it. Initially, I wanted to release the album last year but I deleted it as I was not happy about it.

“I recorded another album which I am going to unveil this Friday. I have confidence on this one,” the 28-year-old-artiste said.

Play back in Harare by public demand

A play which celebrates the downfall of former President Robert Mugabe, Operation Restore Regasi will be showcased for the second round at Theatre in Park in Harare due to the high demand the play has attracted.

The play is scheduled for tonight at 7pm.

Operation Restore Regasi was initially shown at the same venue for three days last week, with all sessions recording a full house.

In some cases people had to be turned away while others preferred to rather stand than go back.

The actors will once again take to the stage in hilarious depictions of the former first lady Grace Mugabe and her 94-year-old husband.

The play takes a dig at Mugabe and Grace and mocks how they were dethroned after a military intervention on November 15, 2018.

Scenes from the play portray Grace as the crazy woman who insulted people leading to her husband’s downfall.

It goes on to repeat the events that took place from November 15 last year until Mugabe resigned and even repeats some of the speeches and statements made during the time.


Ex-Q to launch album

Talented rapper Ex-Q will be launching his Tseu Tseu album at a special “Unplugged” event tomorrow at Rylance Resort in Borrowdale in Harare.

This comes as the organisers of the event have had to reiterate their effort to provide a safe environment for “Unplugged” goers following controversy that arose on Twitter over comments that the event was becoming too crowded.

Ex-Q described the album as food for the ears, in an earlier interview online.

“Tseu Tseu is a small cultivated land for domestic farming that can be able to feed the whole village. This album is going to feed your ears and you will fall in love with it. There are tracks for everyone to fall in love with and dance to,” he was quoted.
