CHIMURENGA music exponent, Thomas Mapfumo gave an exhilarating performance at Harare’s Glamis Stadium Saturday night, leaving fans gasping for more as he performed in Zimbabwe for the first time in 14 years.

Mapfumo hit the stage around 2am as fans became a little impatient but once he arrived, Mukanya as he is known by his legion of fans did not disappoint.

For a 72-year-old Mapfumo belted out his yester-year hits for five hours non-stop as well as new songs from his home-coming bira album including one Chauya Chauya in which he urges Zimbabweans to elect leaders of their choice without fear.

The song had fans singing along albeit with opposition MDC-T slogan chants in between.
