Black Mo­tion billed for iFest

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Entertainment - Bon­gani Ndlovu Show­biz Correspondent

FOL­LOW­ING South African DJ Black Cof­fee’s epic shut­down at last year’s Ibumba Fes­ti­val (iFest), or­gan­is­ers this year have turned to an­other equally tal­ented act from that coun­try in the mould of house mu­sic duo Black Mo­tion to bring the cur­tain down on the week long fete.

The iFest to be held in Bu­l­awayo from De­cem­ber 16 to 22 will fea­ture the For­tune Teller hit-mak­ers. They are billed to per­form on De­cem­ber 21 at Hartsfield Tshisa Nyama where they will be sup­ported by DJs Vic­tor Bravo, Crazy D, Crazy Black, Liz, Ras Obido, Wel­ly­onz, Slimza, Nospa, Staffa, Skaiva, Eugy, Teddy and Yu­goee. MCs on the night will be Clive Chigubhu and Bowsky with en­trance pegged at $5 or R100 be­fore 8PM and $10 or R200 af­ter­wards. VIP is pegged at $20 or R300.

Event or­gan­iser, Mduduzi Md­longwa of 3D Events said they wanted to do away with the cul­ture of hav­ing peo­ple come out for shows late in the night, hence the cheap ticket pric­ing be­fore 8PM.

“We want peo­ple to come in early to avoid con­ges­tion at the gate. The price of bev­er­ages on the night will be sub­sidised so that our pa­trons en­joy the night,” said Md­longwa.

In a bid to de­velop the arts, Md­longwa said they would give lo­cal DJs an op­por­tu­nity to meet and share notes with the Black Mo­tion duo of Thabo “Smol” Mabog­wane and Bon­gani “DJ Mur­dah” Mo­hosana.

“Last year when the duo was here, they were not in­ter­ested in be­ing in the ho­tel. We hope that this time around, there’ll be time for them to go and see some of the shows at the iFest.

“We also want them to meet up with our num­ber one house pro­ducer DJ Skaiva so that they share notes in stu­dio and also watch him per­form his set,” said Md­longwa.

Rev­ellers will have an op­por­tu­nity to wit­ness Black Mo­tion dish out mu­sic from their lat­est 13-track al­bum Ya Bodimo that con­tains pop­u­lar track, Omo Dudu.
