ZIM music legends, Oliver Mtukudzi and Leonard Zhakata will on Saturday (tomorrow) twin up to serenade revellers at the Platinum, formerly Pick and Save, in a potentially explosive gig.The two celebrated word-smith who will be performing at the joint for the first time this year are expected to sample some new tracks from their forthcoming
albums to be released before year end.
Notably, Zhakatas song, Ndinotenda carried on his yet to be christened forthcoming album is expected to send fans into delirium.
On the song, the Mugove singer thanked his legion of fans worldwide for the overwhelming support he received on the highly successful album, Zvangu Zvaita released two years ago.
Following skirmishes that took place at Jah Prayzahs gig a fortnight ago, show organisers have assured patrons maximum security.
The gig was marred by scenes of violence which left revellers scurrying for cover after one of the feuding parties unleashed a chemical weapon similar to a teargas canister. The show could not continue after the skirmishes.
Jah Prayzah and his Third Generation Band as well as scores of fans sustained minor injuries while fleeing from the choking chemical.
We would like to apologise to our patrons for the violence that erupted at our joint during Jah Prayzahs show. The unfortunate incident was the first of its kind and we are glad that it is now in the hands of police. We will continue to bring undiluted fun to Mutare by bringing local, regional and international artistes at our joint maintaining peace and tranquility, said the organiser and Platinum Leisure Centre proprietor, Isau Mupfumi.
Oliver Tuku Mtukudzi, who failed to perform at the same venue after communication breakdown in the superstars camp last month, is expected to be at his best when he performs in front of a bumper crowd expected to throng the spacious leisure centre.
