Toya De­lazy set to grace Zim dur­ing tour

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Entertainment - Robert Mukondiwa

AWARD-win­ning South African singer Toya De­lazy has in­cluded a con­cert in Harare on her “Rock­ing The City” tour of African cities, which will in­volve 20 shows in seven coun­tries over seven weeks.

Born La­toya Nontokozo Buthelezi, Toya has pre­vi­ously en­deared her­self to the Zim­bab­wean masses, play­ing be­fore an ap­pre­cia­tive crowd at the pop­u­lar Harare In­ter­na­tional Fes­ti­val of the Arts (Hifa) in 2014. That show was sold out.

Now the “Toya hun­gry” Zim­bab­weans will once again have their date with the enig­matic su­per-artiste this sum­mer.

The pop­u­lar artiste has re­leased de­tails of the first part of her tour sched­ule, which will in­clude the Harare con­cert on Oc­to­ber 21 at the Bor­row­dale Race­course.

Said Minky Wal­ters of Sound Event Man­age­ment: “This is one of the most ex­cit­ing an­nounce­ments of the year on the Zim­bab­wean en­ter­tain­ment scene and we look for­ward to host­ing one of the best and most pop­u­lar per­form­ers at what prom­ises to be a stun­ning con­cert.”

With a rep­u­ta­tion as a front run­ner and vi­sion­ary within the mu­sic in­dus­try, Toya De­lazy is aim­ing at con­ti­nen­tal suc­cess with this new en­deav­our un­der De­lazy En­ter­tain­ment, and the tour is an in­di­ca­tor of how Toya De­lazy is run­ning her own race and car­ry­ing the South African flag high.

Hot off the heels of a Euro­pean tour in re­cent months, Toya De­lazy is now back on home soil in Mzansi and has brought her UK band with her for the tour.

Her ex­ist­ing South African crew will also help bring to the stage the best of UK and SA in a mar­riage show­ing just where Toya De­lazy is in her ca­reer right now.

She said: “My team and I have been work­ing for months on this gi­gan­tic project and for it to fi­nally ma­te­ri­alise, makes all the hard work worth­while.”

Her lat­est mu­sic video, for the sin­gle Nu High, is now out on Youtube. Nu High is also avail­able for pur­chase on all ma­jor dig­i­tal plat­forms.

Spon­sors of the Zim­bab­wean con­cert are now be­ing fi­nalised and so far in­clude the prin­ci­pal spon­sor, DStv ar­ranged by Mul­tiChoice Zim­babwe, as well as Hol­i­day Inn Harare and fast­jet, which are re­spec­tively ac­com­mo­dat­ing and trans­port­ing the en­tire crew.

Lo­cal sup­port acts for the con­cert will be an­nounced in com­ing weeks.

Ad­vance tick­ets have been pegged at $15 and $25 for the VIP/golden cir­cle area — @zim­rob­bie.
