NIGERIAN stars P-Square arrived in Zimbabwe Thursday ahead of a gig in Harare on Saturday.
The brother duo of Peter and Paul Okoye landed at the Harare International Airport shortly after midday to wild scenes.
Screaming fans made a beeline for the pair who are signed to Akon’s label, Konvict Musik.
After being driven into the city, P-Square did the rounds at local radio stations where the phones rang hot with fans calling in to talk to the duo.
Bass guitarist Doyin, part of a P-Square’s 13-piece band, said: “We are delighted to be in Zimbabwe. We want to give our fans here something to talk about for a long time.”
Saturday’s gig at the Glamis Arena, dubbed ‘Raise the Vibes’, is sponsored by Delta Beverages through their Lion Lager brand.
Delta Beverages Marketing Manager Patricia Murambinda said: “We are pleased to have the group in the country. They are going to be performing alongside our local artists and I should warn them to bring their A-game because our local artists will give them a run for their money.”
P-Square, who arrived aboard a South African Airways plane, will share the stage with a number of local artists including jazz diva Prudence Katomeni-Mbofana, dancehall star Winky D, Nox, Amara and Alexio Kawara.
P-Square is one of Africa’s biggest musical exports. Their hit ‘Chop My Money’ featuring Akon has been a massive success internationally and has over 10 million views on YouTube.
They followed that by featuring Rick Ross on their latest single, ‘Beautiful Onyinye’, which already has over six million views after being uploaded on YouTube in June.
