THE Zimbabwe Achievers Awards is known for introducing new talent to the fore every year, and this year’s awards ceremony will be no different.
The organisers have chosen to feature mainly up and coming talent at the 7th edition of the awards to be held this Saturday 6th May in London.
A spitting image of the late Andy Brown, Alex Brown is the multi-talented guitar player who is among the rising musicians that will perform at the Cumberland hotel this weekend.
“For the past seven years, guests to our previous events have had the opportunity to witness first-hand, upcoming gifted artists, and we want to keep that trend going,” said events coordinator Nothando Ndebele.
Brown, who is aspiring to continue his father’s legacy, will be joined in the line-up by gospel singer Dalia Majongwe, performing artist Bea Muzenda, bass-baritonist, Simon Shibambu and soulful jazz sensation Nandi.
Ndebele, who has overseen the selection of performers this year, said Alex, Dalia, Bea, Simon and Nandi are a wonderful addition to ZAA’s talent pool that has featured artists such as Cynthia Mare, Tinashe Kachingwe, Tariro NeGitare, Chashe and Gemma Griffiths, among others over the years.
