Buoyed by the crooner’s recent triumph in Lagos, Nigeria where he scooped the Legend Award at the All Africa Music Awards (Afrima), Tuku has decided to celebrate with fans in his backyard in Norton.
The duo of Tuku and Winky D, which represents the best of both generations, will be supported by Agga Nyabinde, Hitondo and a number of acts groomed at Pakare Paye in Norton.
In an interview with H-Metro, show coordinator and Tuku Music board chairperson, Tungamidzai Simango said his team had done all the ground work to ensure the show lives to its billing.
“We are happy with the preparations where all the artistes in line-up who are billed to perform will be available.
“It’s a special show where Tuku will be celebrating winning an award at the All Africa Music Awards as well as meeting his fans.
“To the youngsters sharing the stage with Tuku, it’s an honour for them to learn from the best. In this case, they will learn from Winky D who represents the youths while Tuku plays at the father figure role as he also represents the old generation,” he said.
Simango said the show was also special for his board as they meet various stakeholders in showbiz.
“Our fans are now aware that there is a new board running Tuku’s affairs and we have just started doing the job we were tasked to do.
“By the way, we decided to invite Winky D at this month’s show held under the Dzvam-Tsvam concept and we hope fans will embrace the Ninja president along with Agga Nyabinde and Hitondo among others.”
Early this week, Agga who was roped in the line-up could not hide his elation.
The 26-year-odl, who passed through both his dad Bob Nyabinde and Tuku’s tutelage, said he was relishing the Tuku gig.
“It’s no secret that there are a lot of taltned you artistes outside there who are itching to share the stage with Tuku.
“Tuku is one such a finest artiste who continues to wean off artistes at his centre in Norton.
“In my case, I have had an opportunity to learn from the best in the case of my father and Tuku.
“As you know, Tuku and my dad are friends and Tuku used to visit us in Kwekwe and he always pushed me to continue working hard,” he was quoted as saying.
Agga said it was also his first time sharing the stage with Winky and vowed to learn from the king of Zim dancehall.
“I have never shared the stage with him before and it will happen this Friday at Pakare Paye.
“It feels good sharing the stage with the best of our generation in the case of Winky D which rarely happen,” he said.
