Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Entertainment - To­bias Man­doreba in Hwange Show­biz Cor­re­spon­dent

THE usu­ally quiet Hwange town is ex­pected to roar into life on Septem­ber 30 as the Col­liery Sta­dium re­ver­ber­ates in dance and mu­sic dur­ing the CID Mata­bele­land North Busi­ness Against Crime mu­si­cal con­cert.

The show would be held in con­junc­tion with the lo­cal Crime Con­sul­ta­tive Com­mit­tee and is the sec­ond in the province af­ter a sim­i­lar one was held at Chino­timba Sta­dium in Vic­to­ria Falls in July, which was a suc­cess. The gigs aim to raise stake­holder aware­ness on the need to part­ner Zim­babwe Repub­lic Po­lice in com­bat­ing crime.

Tick­ets for the show are pegged at $2 and $1 for adults and chil­dren re­spec­tively.

Pop­u­lar mu­si­cian Martin Sibanda and his Ndol­wane Su­per Sounds are the main at­trac­tion at the show and will share the stage with the likes of Hwange based out­fits, Chibuku Road to Fame Mata­bele­land North rep­re­sen­ta­tives Shan­tani Afro Jazz Band, Marasha Moto Ex­press Band and Jam­bezi based Kwe­jani Band.

From Vic­to­ria Falls a lot will be ex­pected from the likes of Zim­dance­hall sen­sa­tion Ray “Muf­fi­ak­ing” Kari­pache and Chicken Bus.

In an in­ter­view, district chair­per­son for the Crime Con­sul­ta­tive Com­mit­tee James Sibanda said:

“All the lo­gis­tics are now in place to host this fundrais­ing mu­si­cal show here in Hwange and it is com­ing at the back­drop of an ex­cit­ing show in Vic­to­ria Falls at the end of July. A num­ber of mu­si­cal groups are ex­pected to dish out lots of en­ter­tain­ment to mu­sic lovers to the com­mu­nity whose sup­port I can say is com­mend­able in this drive.” he said. Ndol­wane Su­per Sounds band man­ager Than­dazani Ny­oni promised fans a show to re­mem­ber. “As Ndol­wane we have al­ways made sure we give best per­for­mances dur­ing live shows and this one is no ex­cep­tion. I am urg­ing fans to come in num­bers and en­joy a show to re­mem­ber,” he said. Marasha Moto Ex­press Band leader Ran­gari­rai Pedzi­sai also promised mu­sic fans a show to re­mem­ber.“We are more than geared for this show as we want to prove to rev­ellers that our grow­ing pop­u­lar­ity in the town and province is no fluke” he said.
