Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Entertainment - Sukul­wenkosi Dube-Matutu Plumtree Cor­re­spon­dent

YIZO Yizo’s Gun­man (real name Christo­pher Kub­heka) who was in Plumtree at the week­end to interact with fans at 4Js Sports Bar, says he has ven­tured into mu­sic.

The multi-skilled artist who among other ac­tiv­i­ties, toured the bor­der town, re­vealed plans to launch his de­but al­bum soon adding that he was also into video di­rect­ing.

“I’m tak­ing my ca­reer to a new level. Al­though I’m still an ac­tor, I’m in the process of launch­ing my first al­bum. I’m also di­rect­ing videos with Kalawa as I want my work to cut across the en­tire en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try,” said Gun­man.

Apart from his act­ing and mu­sic ca­reer, Gun­man wants to leave a mark in the en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try by men­tor­ing up-and-com­ing ac­tors and singers in Zim­babwe and South Africa. He hopes to start do­ing so in Zim­babwe next month. One of Gun­man’s hosts, Hand­some Sibanda, said KasiTound­tain­ment, a Plumtree-based events com­pany, was in the process of re­viv­ing the en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try in the bor­der town. He said more sim­i­lar vis­its had been ar­ranged for the sum­mer sea­son. South Africa-based en­ter­tain­ment com­pany, Le­ci­atain­ment, who were also re­spon­si­ble for Gun­man’s visit, said they would en­gage more South African artistes to visit Zim­babwe and ex­change notes with lo­cals. Te­bogo Ma­ganye, the com­pany’s di­rec­tor, said: “As Le­ci­atain­ment, we mar­ket a num­ber of well-es­tab­lished artists, Gun­man in­cluded. This is the first visit that we’ve fa­cil­i­tated. “In this new busi­ness ini­tia­tive, we hope to ex­change busi­ness with Zim­bab­wean pro­mot­ers as well as hold events in Zim­babwe and have Zim­bab­wean pro­mot­ers hold­ing events in our coun­try. “We also hope that Zim­bab­wean and South African mu­si­cians will forge col­lab­o­ra­tions,” Ma­ganye said. — @DubeMatutu
