Tshanda and entourage in Zim
HARARE – South African disco music sensation Dan Tshanda is expected to extend his love for Zimbabwe as he struts it out at a musical show slated for the Amphitheatre in Bulawayo today.
Tshanda, who will be in the company of her former protégé, the talented composer and lead vocalist Patricia Majalisa, will after today’s showcase travel all the way to the resort town of Victoria Falls where another potentially explosive all night gig is scheduled for Chinotimba Stadium.
Speaking to the Daily News show promoter Honest Sibanda of Whatever Promotions said everything was in place for the gig.
“Tshanda the King of Splash has already arrived and I promise you, people are going to have a wonderful weekend as there is a rich line up from renowned South African musicians,” said Sibanda.
“I am told Majalisa and Peacock have something new to offer.
“So for the fans, it will be a grand opportunity to have a live feel of the new products today right here in Bulawayo and tomorrow in Victoria Falls. It’s really going to be massive,” he added.
Majalisa who weaned herself from the Dalom Music Stable some few years ago and now recording with Gallo Records never seem to forget where she came from as she continues to work with Tshanda on many musical projects.
Majalisa, a former Dalom Kids lead vocalist, is one of the many musicians from across the Limpopo who have openly declared their love for Zimbabwe as exhibited by their frequent return to the country.
The Dalom music stable under which falls the equally talented and renowned artistes such as the Dalom Kids, Slindile Thabile, Mazolwane, Peacock and Matshikos are known for their energetic but captivating stage act that has always seen crowds jostling for space in their previous shows in the country.
The artistes from Mzansi have for long now made it an annual ritual to perform in the country particularly in Matabeleland region where they seem to enjoy a wider following.
The Splash superstar, who used his last show in Bulawayo to launch his latest 12-track CD Xewani, is also expected to play some of his yet-to-be-released tracks.
During his last visit to Bulawayo, Tshanda told the Daily News that he intended to open a satellite office in the City of Kings aimed at scouting and promoting aspiring and upcoming local musicians as a sign of his love for Zimbabwe.
He has such clinics in Namibia and Botswana.
