DENDERA musician Suluman Chimbetu whose group Orchestra Dendera Kings outfit has a new-look management will this Sunday hold his first show at one of his favourite joints, City Sports Bar in Harare, since he made changes to his band.
Fans of the artiste who frequent the joint have been waiting to see how the Orchestra Dendera Kings outfit will perform following the introduction of new portfolios to the group and whether these latest developments will in any way affect the group’s performance.
Knowledge Nkoma, who was the group’s manager, has been shifted to man the group’s technical aspect and being the veteran guitarist that he is, this means that he now has more time on stage work with the rest of the band.
Sulu’s performance at City Sports Bar is set to further consolidate his stature as one of the country’s leading musicians who has branded himself well over the years.
A big plus is the inclusion of his uncle Allan into the ranks of the band and this means more strength since Allan is also a polished musician. “This is Sulu’s first time at
City Sports Bar following the change in management
“Sulu regards the joint as one of his favourite bases and this is like a homecoming show and I know for a fact that his fans will not be disappointed,” Biggie Chinoperekwei of City Sports Bar said. Sulu needs no introduction in the music circles, having a catalogue of songs that have endeared him to legions of fans.
Apart from his own songs like “Kwedu”, “Dzamutsana” and “Temperature” among others, “Mwana Wedangwe” as he is also fondly called, is also good when it comes to singing renditions of his late father’s songs.
Before Sulu takes to the stage on Sunday, the same joint will on Saturday host the “Windhoek Party” where revellers will win a variety of prizes.
“This is a promotion aimed at honouring our patrons this winter and they will walk away with a range of prizes like golf bags, T-shirts, caps as well as beer,” Chinoperekwei added.
Meanwhile, Zora musician Leonard Zhakata will tonight invade Holly’s Hotel in Harare in show where he will play his catalogue of songs from both his old albums as well as his latest release, “Gotwe — Last Born”.
