SUNGURA protege Mark Ngwazi set the normally serene Nzvimbo outback with a scintillating performance that left villagers spellbound.
Ngwazi was performing at the Mazowe district independence day commemorations at Nzvimbo Secondary School Monday.
The event, which as organised by the Zanu PF Mazowe district coordinating committee chiared by businessman Tafadzwa Musarara, attracted thousands of villagers who spent the day on the dance floor as Ngwazi belted some of his hits, including the fan favourite, Dzimwe Nzendo Taurai Madzoka.
An excited elderly villager said the event reminded him of the 1980 independence euphoria which was characteried by music, dance and feasts.
“I was there in 1980 when independence came and this is how we used to celebrate it,” the villager said.
“For once, I was taken back to the old times in the 1980s when music and dance punctuated a day like this, not to mention the free meals and drinks,” the man, a retired factory foreman, said.
This year’s independence commemorations ran under the them: Leaving noone and no place behind.
