Toya Delazy set to grace Zim during tour
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.
