Tanza Centre, a new entertainment joint in Chitungwiza, will hold its official opening party on Friday.
The centre, which is adjacent to the Aquatic Complex, opened its doors on December 24 last year and has become popular with merrymakers from Chitungwiza and Harare.
Management at the joint said the official opening party comes two months after the opening of the joint because they are now convinced they can hold huge numbers and have gained confidence from merrymakers that throng the place in huge numbers every weekend.
Jah Prayzah and Jean Masters will perform at the official opening party that will also be the first live show at Tanza Centre.
Manager of the joint, Richard Chibvongodze, said the party will also mark the beginning of a live show programme that would see a number of big artists performing at the venue.
“We are overwhelmed by the response we have witnessed so far from our patrons. The place became very popular within a month and the numbers are increasing every week. We feel it is time to publicly announce our arrival on the entertainment scene,” said Chibvongodze.
“We will try our best to keep our patrons entertained. The feedback we are getting shows they are enjoying the current programme and service, but we want to go a step further to bring their favourite artistes for live shows.
“We are planning to bring big artistes every month and having Jah Prayzah for our first show will give us the much-needed live show experience that we will use in our next gigs. We are expecting thousands of revellers at this show and it should be a big way of celebrating our arrival in showbiz.”
Tanza Centre has an advantage over other venues because it has outdoor entertainment facilities as well as a nightclub in the same complex. Both divisions are spacious and people can alternate between them according to their music tastes and service choices.
