HARARE – Fresh from Seychelles, Suluman “Sulu” Chimbetu and the inimitable Orchestra Dendera Kings will tonight join revellers at Jazz 105 for a Valentine’s Day gig on a night where musicians rev up lovers’ day.
Following a successful performance at the just ended International Carnival in Victoria Seychelles, Suluman flew back home yesterday.
Josh Hozheri, owner of the joint and organiser of the party told the Daily News that he is proud with what Sulu has done for the nation as a whole.
“Sulu has made us proud on an international scale and we want to be the first joint to host him whilst he is still fresh from Seychelles.
“We have created a good relationship with the admired artiste — we launched his album which is rocking the market.
“There has been a coincidence with Valentine’s Day but it is a welcome back party for Suluman appreciating the excellent performance in Seychelles,” said Hozheri.
The dendera musician has won the heart of the Zimbabwe Tourism Authority (ZTA) chief executive Karikoga Kaseke who said that the whole group was impressed by Sulu’s performance and he (Sulu) will next month head for another carnival in South Africa with them.
“The decision to go with him to South Africa is premised on his performance at the carnival in Seychelles which was, surprisingly, received by many.
“With such a brand he can take Zimbabwe anywhere and we are hoping that he will perform exceptionally well at the forthcoming carnival,” he said.
