An­other SA ac­tor for Plumtree

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

SOUTH African ac­tor, singer, poet and dancer Is­rael Makoe, who is best known for his role as GP in the SABC drama series, Gaz’lam, is ex­pected in Plumtree on Fri­day.

The artiste, who also played Non­goloza in the iconic, hard hit­ting drama series Yizo Yizo, will be in the bor­der town to meet and greet fans at 4Js Sports Bar.

Event or­gan­iser Hand­some Sibanda said Makoe was also go­ing to grace the grand open­ing of Bil­lards Lounge at the sports bar.

Makoe’s visit fol­lows that of Gun­man (real name Christo­pher Kub­heka) from Yizo Yizo who was in the bor­der town last month.

“We’re host­ing these ac­tors as part of our ef­forts to en­sure that Plumtree res­i­dents are ex­posed to the best en­ter­tain­ment,” Sibanda said. Other than en­ter­tain­ment, Sibanda said Makoe would in­spire youths in Plumtree by im­part­ing his knowl­edge to them. “A lot of youths from this town are ex­posed to South African tele­vi­sion. We want to bring those ac­tors and singers that they can iden­tify with to help mo­ti­vate and cre­ate link­ages for them.” DJs Yu­goe, Mabae, Widdy, Zbox, Pu­jah, Betso, Cool­dread and Hi­lary will pro­vide en­ter­tain­ment at the event which starts at 6PM. Makoe has fea­tured in sev­eral South African movies in­clud­ing Tsotsi, Avenged and The First Grader. He has also fea­tured in Izulu Lami, Four Cor­ners, Hard to Get, Es­forn­des, Rockville, Z’bondiwe and Zone 14.— Twit­ter @ DubeMatutu
