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

SOUTH African co­me­dian and ac­tor, Mad­lu­phuthu — (real name Vuyo Mgudlwa) — is ex­pected in Gwanda on Satur­day for a fam­ily fun day.

The tal­ented ac­tor who made an ap­pear­ance in Plumtree and vis­ited schools there is also ex­pected to grace an af­ter party that will be held at In­janji Wa­ter­front in the min­ing town.

Event or­gan­iser, Hand­some Sibanda, said the fun day would be held at St Christo­pher’s Pri­mary School from 8AM till 5PM with the af­ter party sched­uled to be­gin at 7PM.

“We held a sim­i­lar event in Plumtree — my home town — last month and I saw it fit to ex­pand this event to our sis­ter town, Gwanda,” Sibanda said.

He said a num­ber of games and en­ter­tain­ment ac­tiv­i­ties for chil­dren in­clud­ing jump­ing cas­tles, clowns, tram­po­lines and swim­ming had been lined up with a braai for adults. DJs Mar­o­dza, Ra-an­gle and guest DJs Pu­jah, Yu­goe, Mabae will also en­ter­tain rev­ellers.

If all goes ac­cord­ing to plan, these fam­ily fun days will be taken to other towns and cities.

Mad­lu­phuthu’s man­ager, Teddy Mlen­zana said the co­me­dian en­joyed his visit to Zim­babwe last month and was keen to visit more towns.

Sibanda said they were host­ing SA celebs lo­cally in a bid to re­vive the en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try in small towns. SA ac­tor, singer, poet and dancer Is­rael Makoe, who is best known for his role as GP in the SABC drama se­ries, Gaz’lam and ac­tor Christo­pher Khub­heka, who is best known for his role as Gun­man in Yizo Yizo are some of the names whom he has hosted this year alone — @DubeMatutu.
