The Herald (Zimbabwe) - - Front Page - Mun­yaradzi Musi­iwa

CHIMURENGA mu­sic guru Thomas “Mukanya” Map­fumo, who is in the coun­try for a series of shows, has promised his fans top-notch per­for­mances.

He re­turns af­ter a long hia­tus from lo­cal shows.

He will per­form in Gweru, Bu­l­awayo, Harare, Masvingo, Vic­to­ria Falls, Mutare and Kariba.

Map­fumo is billed to start his peace tour with a show in Gweru at the Golf Club tonight.

He re­turns to the City of Progress af­ter 14 years.

Mukanya said the tour sought to re­unite with his fans as well as preach the gospel of peace and unity.

He said fans should look for­ward to new of­fer­ings which will be blended with his yesteryear hits.

“I came here last time and we met at the show­grounds and we had fun. How­ever, we did not man­age to meet all our fans through­out the coun­try. So this time around we will try to meet as many fans as pos­si­ble in dif­fer­ent ar­eas.

“We know that our fans have sup­ported us very much this is why we are re­turn­ing to the coun­try dur­ing the fes­tive sea­son. I have no doubt that we will have a good time to­gether and we are go­ing to en­joy a lot.

“We have new of­fer­ings that you haven’t heard that we will be giv­ing you for the first time. We will also take you down mem­ory lane with our yesteryear songs,” he said.

Mukanya said the tour was also meant to safe­guard cul­ture and pre­vent moral deca­dence.

“We look for­ward to the shows and we also hope that we will have good time. I would want to urge all mu­sic lovers to come for the shows. It’s a Bira (tra­di­tional cel­e­bra­tions) where we will be cel­e­brat­ing our cul­ture.“
