Fast fading, ZimDancehall Artist Tocky Vibes, who claims a rival artist is bewitching him, brew another shocker over the weekend after he refused to perform in Kwekwe without a band.
Interestingly, the youthful chanter is reported to have fired all his band members whom he accused of incompetence, last week.
Tocky had been billed to perform at Mbizo Inn together with Peter Moyo and Norman Masamba.
A source speaking on condition of anonymity revealed: “He fired all the band members saying they were incompetent and later refused to perform saying he had no band,” he said.

Sources said it was shocking that the musician refused to perform without a band yet he always back tracks on international tours.
The musician’s manager Elvis Bokosha said he would not comment on the matter.
“I cannot comment on that matter because I was not around. I am still to establish what happened,” he said.
He would not be drawn into commenting on what is fast becoming a controversial streak of the “Mhai” hitmaker whose fortunes have since taken a nosedive.
“Are you aware that he released new songs last week that featured gospel artist Bethen Pasinawako Ngolomi?” he said before hanging up his mobile phone.
Moyo’s manager Sukol Dube confirmed that the young musician did not turn up for the show.
“He did not come for the show. I am yet to hear what really happened to him,” he said.
Dube admitted that the show was affected by Tocky’s decision to abscond.
“He had agreed to be part of the show and adverts were done already. That affected the gig as fans waited outside for him to perform,” he said.
Tocky Vibes has been going through a rough patch and last week there were reports in which he appeared to insinuate that some fellow artists have bewitched him.
The musician spent the festive season at his rural home in Zvishavane while others were busy entertaining their fans across the country.
