BEDROCK Entertainment has confirmed that Maskiri, Trevor Dongo, Leonard Mapfumo and Super Producer Macdee will begin their UK tour on Saturday 22 as planned.

The ‘Tsotsi’ star Maskiri leaves Zimbabwe with a successful year in which he was crowned the Zim Hip Hop Best Male Artist 2012.

Trevor Dongo of the ‘Ndashamisika’ fame and current romantic anthem in Zimbabwe will also grace the UK stage. To crown the musical adventure on the performances, Leonard Mapfumo and Producer Macdee are ready to set the house on fire.

Bedrock spokesperson, Witcan Chirimuuta said: "We promise to deliver memorable shows and keep fans happy. We want to end 2012 with a bang and usher 2013 in style."

A fan page post on Trevor Dongo’s social networking site facebook confirmed saying, "Leaving for the UK Tour on Wednesday the 19th, coming back on the 4th of January."

The two shows slated for Coventry, Platinum on December 22 and the second on December 23 in London at the newly-renovated Club Kartana, formerly Club 19 will prove critical for much praised artists who are all freshman on UK stages and truly out to prove their worth in the face of fresh audiences.

The hunger for Zimbabwean art is evident as Zimbabweans have supported artists from the motherland endlessly over the past couple of years.

All the artists are thrilled and promising shows of a lifetime. Maskiri the Zim Hip Hop Godfather promised a movie scene performance, while King of Rnb Trevor Dongo promised mouth-watering performances.

Speaking to NewZimbabwe.com, multi-talented Leonard Mapfumo said: “I think it’s a gateway to a new territory and we hope to make a lot of noise that will turn heads of people who have never heard of us before. We hope to reach out to other nations or groups. We hope by the time we come back we will be having new fans”.

Super producer Macdee who has promised few surprises will be working with the different acts on the tour.

“I feel this tour was long overdue to the UK fans. This is a rare combination of the Zim Hip Hop gurus, Rnb King and a renowned producer” Macdee said.
