An estimated 3000 or so crowed packed the ZOL main stage to witnesses what has become the most anticipated HIFA shows.

The vastly toured group proved why they are the next if not current big thing to hit our musical scene with an energy filled display.

Running under the theme ‘The Power of many’ the group collaborated with a vast number of productions much to the amusement of the audience.

The tap dancing moves by the inimitable Maylene Chenjerai, the meandering moves of legendary Tumbuka Dance Company and the Spoken word by Star FM’s Nikki all proved like a moment in the sun as it brought out the cosmopolitan nature of HIFA.

For a good 1hour or so the opening night managed to swing the mood of the city to that of festivity.

To conclude the night was the organised chaos of the powerful fireworks display that illuminated the sunshine city.

And there was light. And behold, it was good…
