Mad­lu­phuthu to grace Plumtree fam­ily fun day

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

SOUTH African co­me­dian and ac­tor, Vuyo Mgudlwa, pop­u­larly known as Mad­lu­phuthu, is ex­pected in Plumtree next week­end for a fam­ily fun day.

The tal­ented ac­tor is also ex­pected to grace an af­ter party that will be held at 4Js Sports Bar next Satur­day.

Event or­gan­iser Hand­some Sibanda said the fun day would be held at Al­lan Red­fern from 10AM till 5PM with the af­ter party sched­uled to be­gin at 7PM.

“We’ve re­alised that en­ter­tain­ment events in Plumtree cater for adults only hence our de­ci­sion to have a fam­ily fun day. Mad­lu­phuthu will min­gle and in­ter­act with fans of all age groups,” said Sibanda. DJs Yu­goe, Mabae, Widdy, Zbox, Pu­jah, Betso, Cool­dread and Hi­lary will pro­vide en­ter­tain­ment at the fun day.

Mad­lu­phuthu’s man­ager, Teddy Mlen­zana, con­firmed their visit to the bor­der town say­ing it would be a great op­por­tu­nity for the ac­tor to in­ter­act with lo­cal fans.

Mad­lu­phuthu, who is as tall as a midget, some­times with an ir­ri­tat­ing run­ning nose, will likely be a hit in Plumtree as he is the per­son­i­fi­ca­tion of a town­ship hero, cel­e­brated for do­ing ab­so­lutely noth­ing but spread­ing his charm and silly jokes. De­spite his pro­trud­ing teeth, peo­ple have grown to love him though he plays the char­ac­ter of a re­tard.

Sibanda, who has hosted Is­rael Makoe, best known for his role as GP in Gaz’lam and Gun­man (real name Christo­pher Khub­heka) re­vealed plans to host more ac­tors from South Africa. – @DubeMatutu
