When Kedha Power’s meme of “Zvirikufaya” went viral many thought the Canadian-based Zimbabwean was not going to return home. However, Kedha Power whose real name is Curtis Smith is in the country and back to what he enjoys most — car spinning. Apparently, Kedha Power has been interviewed on radio and many of his fans were excited that the man behind the “Zvirikifaya meme” from his Canada base was back home for the holidays and will be the main attraction at the Burnouts scheduled for this Friday at Arcadia Sports Club.
Kedha Power aka Sleeky will be on the line up of veteran spinners in the likes of Fat Cat, Gooda, Spin Kid, Dee Boy, and Gordon.
Top stuntmen Kunnie will also be in the mix while DJs Shy will be dropping hot tunes on the turntables.
There is going to be jumping castles for children as well as full bar and catering.
Proudly presented by H-Town Spin City, this would be the first major Burnout this festive season featuring some of the amazing stunts and a parade of different BMWs popularly known down south as gushesh.
The high-energy sport which combines music, and food attracts people from all social and racial backgrounds.
In Zimbabwe, spinning of cars started in the 1980s when rear-wheel drive old Alfa Romeos, Datsuns and BMWs were spun in and around the Arcadia area on public streets.
One of the pioneers of this sport locally is one Isaac Meyer, who has been very involved with the motor industry for many years and specifically with the spinning and drag-racing for more than a decade.
In recent years, Spin Fests have taken this energy-packed sport and brought it into a closed and controlled environment where people could enjoy the spinning of cars without any risk of injury to spectators or drivers.
The whole purpose is to go around an enclosed track at high speed performing various stunts with the ultimate goal of ripping/blowing up the rear wheel tyres.
A variety of stunts are performed with the most difficult one being the driver jumping out of his car and doing push-ups on the roof, or opening his bonnet and standing on the engine while the car is still spinning.
