Dance groups clash at Club 263 Ilanga lead guitarist Mbambo dies
OVER 20 Bulawayo dance groups will tonight converge at Club 263 for the Bulawayo Dance Fiesta.
The dance clash to identify the best dance group in the city is being organised by Devine Assignments and Dancers Association of Zimbabwe president – Harpers Mapimhidze.
It will feature performances by Girls La Musica, Bulawayo Queens and Kings, Ezimnyama, Sungura Masters, Ziyawa Queens, Jaiva Kings, Jaiva Sexy, Magesh, Snipers Crew and Dynamite Chicks. DJs Sweeto and Kead Wikead will be on the decks. Maphimidze said they decided to initiate the event in Bulawayo after its success in Harare and had received an overwhelming response from dance groups in the City of Kings.
“We’ve accepted more than 20 groups and more are showing willingness to participate. It promises to be an epic night,” said Mapimhidze.
“We decided to host this event in Bulawayo after realising the city didn’t have much entertainment activities during the week.”
In order to captivate audiences, the dance groups will dance to two songs only.
“This is not a show, but a gathering of dance groups in Bulawayo to see which one is the best. Each group will have two songs to prove their worth,” said Mapimhidze. The event is expected to start at 6PM. Meanwhile, Mapimhidze who doubles up as Bev’s manager, said his artiste’s show at Stop Over had been postponed from Friday and would be held in October.
