TOP reggae-dancehall performer Winky D is set to make his long-awaited return to Kadoma where he will serenade the gold miners at Odyssey Hotel on Saturday November 9, with Enzo Ishall in tow!
Winky has starved the Kadoma and Kwekwe crowds for over a year now, not since the incident when his Ka Song keJecha caused a furore at a Kwekwe venue. But all seems forgotten now, and the gaffa looks set to pull a top drawer, as he always does.
The fact that this is a family show means that the event looks set to be sold-out, as Enzo Ishall is a hit with the kids who organisers say are expected to come out in their thousands.
Tich Mharadze of 2 Kings Entertainment, the proprietor of Odyssey Hotel, said the event, a Braai Festival, was a family show meant to bring all of Zimbabwe to the mining town.
“This is an annual event that we conceptualised with Kadoma families in mind. These are people starved of entertainment.
They never get to watch some of these superstars. However, it has evolved into a national event, but still catering for families,” said Mharadze, speaking to Sunday Mail.
Mharadze said the hard-core party crowd, which always shows up later, would be dealt with by the evergreen duo of Gary B and Templeman – “the team that never fails to deliver”.
The place has hosted numerous local and international stars including South Africa’s Mafikizolo.
Recently, one of the fastest rising reggae-dancehall artistes to come out of Chillspot Records, Bazooka, proved that he is no pushover when he serenaded a difficult crowd at the same venue.
