Dancehall man of the moment Tocky Vibes and talented crooner Alexio Kawara have joined the line-up of performers at the 2014 Lockdown show set for Harare International Conference Centre on December 19.
The duo will support South African group Mafikizolo and Oliver Mtukudzi who will be the main acts at the show.
Mafikizolo returns to Harare after a long time and the show is likely to be memorable.
The “Khona” hitmakers are expected to bring the festive mood to their local fans.
The group has performed in the country before and left lasting impressions with their stage work and timeless hits like “Emlanjeni” popularly known for lyrics “I will meet you at the river”.
Their combination with Mtukudzi, Tocky Vibes and Alexio is likely to bring fireworks to HICC.
Mtukudzi is currently riding high with his new album “Mukombe Wemvura”.
Tocky has been riding high with hits like “Mhai” and “Aenda Nenyika” while Alexio’s “Zvazvinhu” is doing well on local charts.
Show organiser Simba Madziwa of Simmad Entertainment said they have prepared a spectacular festive season ignition event for music lovers.
“It will be the last day at work for most workers and they will be in festive season mood. Mafikizolo is a talented duo and we want people to begin their festive season in style. We promise a good show because we have many spices on the programme. Tuku, Tocky and Alexio will ensure that the visitors are well complemented,” said Madziwa.
Mafikizolo is a renowned regional group. Their name may mean ‘‘new kids on the block, who just arrived yesterday’’ in Zulu, but Mafikizolo is no newcomer.
This vibrant, stylish group that created a delicious dance brew by mixing old and new South African sounds, have released seven hit filled Afro Pop albums, sold over a million copies, picked up countless awards, and is undoubtedly one of the most successful groups in South Africa.HERALD
