Mu­sic pro­ducer of the mo­ment DJ Ta­muka will also be part of the cast.

This will be ExQ, a.k.a Mr Pu­tit’s maiden per­for­mance in Mutare this year.

For DJ Ta­muka, who hails from Mil­i­tary Touch Move­ment, it will be his first date with fans in the eastern bor­der city.

ExQ is cur­rently on top of the game with plug tracks like “Nzenza”, “Tsvi­giri” and “Pahukama”, fea­tur­ing Jah Prayzah.

He has been in the game for more than two decades, and re­sul­tantly one of the most sought af­ter mu­si­cians. His mu­sic car­ries in­spir­ing lyrics.

Show or­gan­iser Bless­ing Chin­dotana said prepa­ra­tions for the fam­ily show were on track. He said the gig was spe­cial in that it caters for ev­ery­one.

“It’s a fam­ily show that starts at 12pm,” said Chin­dotana. DJ Ta­muka and ExQ have con­firmed their at­ten­dance. They were with Jah Prayzah on his Dubai tour and came back in the coun­try this week.

“DJ Ta­muka will be at Jah Prayzah’s Chi­tubu al­bum launch on tonight (Fri­day) be­fore the duo comes to Mutare on to­mor­row (Satur­day).

“A stage will be set up in the Rayl­ton bas­ket­ball arena where we usu­ally hold our burnouts. In the evening an af­ter­party will be at BarCode,” he said.

Apart from mu­sic, chil­dren will also be en­ter­tained with jump­ing cas­tles, wa­ter slide, braai and other ac­tiv­i­ties that com­ple­ment a fam­ily show en­vi­ron­ment.

“We would like to urge fam­i­lies to come in num­bers and be part of the fi­esta.

“It is re­fresh­ing that dee­jays like Springer, Man Gee, Que3 and Joe Fraser, among oth­ers, will en­ter­tain fans,” he said.

Ta­muka, whose real name is Mponda Makhu­luni, is one of the finest mu­sic pro­duc­ers.

He launched his ca­reer to­gether with Oskidi in Gweru in 2014 when they co-pro­duced hit song “Tipeiwo Hwahwa” by Bu­l­awayo poet Khoikhoi.

Ta­muka has pro­duced hit songs “Nhema” for ExQ, fea­tur­ing Killer T, Am­mara Brown’s “Ak­iliz”, Jah Prayzah’s “Ku­tonga Kwaro” al­bum, “Msom­bodiya” for the Mil­i­tary Touch Fam­ily, “Ghetto girl” by Le­gion and Jah Prayzah’s “Sen­dek­era”, which fea­tures Mafik­i­zolo.
