Tuku set for Mukanya’s Harare gig
Oliver Mtukudzi is on the bill for the much-awaited return of Thomas ‘Mukanya’ Mapfumo.
This was announced by promoters, Entertainment Republic at a media event on Saturday.
Tuku, who is riding the wave of his new album, Hang’ya, actually had another gig out of the country set for the same time but when approached decided to opt for the show, according to his manager Walter Wanyanya.
Also announced are Sulumani Chimbetu, Winky D and Gary Tight with more expected to be revealed.
Particularly interesting is the inclusion of Winky D, with some unflattering quotes attributed to Mukanya about the star but the latter’s representative in Zimbabwe, Blessing Vava, played down these at the press conferennce.
Mapfumo will arrive five days before the event set for Glamis Stadium on 28 April 2018.
