I’m sure you’ve come across the hashtag #FromBulawayoToTheWorld more than once on social media (yes including whatsapp) and probably wondering what’s the fuss about? Well that hashtag deserves all the attention considering the big brand and names it bears. Mr Manyanyatha and uBabes weIYASA are here to make sure the Bulawayo arts scene kicks off on a high as they jetted in the city last week ahead of their musical show slatted for the 6th of January at Bulawayo Theatre which promises fireworks.
Vusa Mkhaya and Nkwali are back in their homeland after their sojourns into international terrains. You may have seen them on some glitz and glamour tip in Hollywood where Vusa and his group Insingizi performed the Lion King Medley in Vienna with Nkwali and Lebo M. The show which will be supported by a live band promises to keep the crowd on their feet. There will be surprise artists and guests expected which are also going to add to the spark of the day. Tickets are already on sale for a fee of $10 and according to the show promoters, they are selling faster than submitting your music with this other radio station. Vusa and Nkwali have travelled and shared their music with the world and before they continue with their musical journey, they saw it fit and noble to revert home and share with us the experience they gathered so far and at the same time update their libraries with what to showcase to the world from Bulawayo.
Bulawayo is my home & holds a special place in the heart. So I’m very excited to be performing with Nkwali at home. I’m looking forward to a great night.
