A CLASH of the titans looms in Harare as the South African Afro-pop duo Mafikizolo return to Zimbabwe in a highly-anticipated gig featuring, among others, local favourites Jah Prazah and Alexio Kawara.
The South-African group, which has regularly toured Zimbabwe over the past four years, are pencilled for a gig at the Harare Conference Centre HICC on the 28th of April.
According to 2 Kings Entertainment (organisers of the event) the show will be used by the award-winning South-African group to celebrate their two decades in the entertainment industry.
“Mafikizolo made up of Theo Kgsinkwe and Mhlanhla Nciza is celebrating 20 years in the music industry.
“The group has stood the test of time and they have contributed immensely to the growth of music in South Africa and even on the local scene and for that reason they should be celebrated,” said 2Kings Entertainment spokesperson Dee Nosh.
Mafikizolo’s last concert in Zimbabwe attracted thousands of people in 2016.
The group took to social media to thank their fans with Kgosinke saying; “The fact that we have been performing in Harare and Bulawayo on a number of occasions but still fans are coming in big numbers is a clear testimony of love.”
Mafikizolo released its debut self-titled album in 1997 which was followed by Music Revolution in 1999.
Over the years, they have scooped numerous accolades, including 3 metro FM awards, four South- African Music Awards and two MTV Africa trophies.
Songs like Khona, Ndihamba Nawe, Emlanjeni and Udakwa Njalo are some of the hits which have made the group popular in Zimbabwe.
