LIFE for dance groups in Mutare has not been a bed of roses as most of them are dying natural deaths because of lack of sponsorship and support from players in the entertainment industry.

sad development has also seen the emergence of visiting dancing ensembles flocking from Harare and Bulawayo to entertain locals. Local promoters have also become enchanted by the waist-wriggling and erotic dancers from Harare who seem to take the dancing business seriously.
Local dance group industry in limbo

Last weekend, tens of fun lovers gathered at Mandisa Nite Club to witness magical dancing antics from a Harare-based all-female dance group, Shining Angels, led by Vee.

The group made good buck after performing at the venue from Friday to Sunday.
About a fortnight ago, another raunchy female dance group from the capital, Crazy Angels, mesmerised a packed crowd at the rejuvenated venue which is now in the hands of the sole owner, Bonface Nyamanhindi.

The crowd seemingly enjoyed every minute of the proceedings, but one could wonder where our own local dance groups disappeared to.
One of the pioneering dance groups in Mutare, Amagruvaz, is on the brink of collapse after almost all of its female dancers either migrated to South Africa or got married.
Other local groups such as New Kings and Queens and Jika MaJika, have also been struggling to stay afloat.

Miracle Kuonameso, Amagruvaz dancer, cited disunity and unprofessionalism as some of the major problems plaguing the dace industry.
“We need to be united. We need to speak with one voice. That way, promoters will address our plight. Like our fellow groups, we are bankrupt. We don’t have money to sustain our project. We have not been getting much financial rewards from entertaining huge crowds in bars and restaurants because just a few patrons appreciate our profession. The other thing is that people no longer frequent drinking places like they used to. That has affected us a lot. Most dancers have lost hope. We need support,” said Kuonameso, who together with Brian Muchadziya and Michael Mtukudzi left leading the group.

A female dancer from Jika MaJika said it was unfortunate that some revellers link dancing with prostitution.
“They think we are thigh vendors. Yet we are just entertainers and most of us are in happy relationships. This is an industry that simply needs support. Promoters should support the dancing industry,” she said.

A player in the entertainment industry and promoter, Nyamanhindi, who has managed to support the dancing industry by bringing in upcoming local dance groups and artistes at his venue situated in Mutare’s CBD, said: “We will continue to support them. They bring unique entertainment to revellers and I think they need our support.”. Manica Post

It appears Winky D and Soul Jah Love have signed a binding pact if their joint performance at Takashinga Cricket Club is anything to go by. Winky D, who graced Soul Jah Love’s 25th birthday bash held over the weekend in Highfield as a special guest, thrilled the crowd with his hit “Paita Party” before the two performed their duet “MaGaffer”.

Energy was high on and off the stage and the security had a torrid time in maintaining order as scores of fans moved closer to the stage.
WInky D and Soul Jah Love form pact, Biggie now Big Brother
Apparently, the song is about how the two have shrugged off competition from their contemporaries.
It says the two are in a class of their own and whoever wants to dare their dominance does so at their own peril.
Winky and Soul Jah Love perform together
Winky D, who had never attended birthday bashes for any artiste since hitting the big time, said he felt honoured to be invited by Soul Jah Love, who is now known as “Chibaba Chacho”.

However, Soul Jah Love, who took delight in introducing Winky D as “Chimukoma Chacho”, came prepared for the bash with his sweetheart Bounty Lisa in tow.

By any measure the joint performance was the climax of the gig, which had other heavy hitters in the likes of Kinnah, Killer T, Shinsoman, Cello Culture, Dhadza D and Ricky fire.

The absence of Seh Calaz, who is perceived as Soul Jah Love’s arch-rival in the genre, did not in any way dampen the spirit at the show as Killer T put up a splendid act.

Killer T, who is also known as the Chairman, was on point from start to finish. He did not waste time and churned out hit after hit to which the crowd sang along.

Another fiery artiste Kinnah made his presence felt with a flawless act and at one time the crowd called for encore and he obliged.

Dhadza D did not disappoint for a minute and he did justice to his set performing all the crowd’s favourites.

Urban grooves star Rockford “Roki” Josphat has made yet another comeback on the music scene with a hit single titled “Number One”. Taken off his upcoming album “Bundu Boy”, the song is not only enjoying multiple spins on radio stations but has become an anthem on dance floors.
While the song has a Rhumba feel to it, Roki urged his fans not to classify his music as he was exploring different styles in the album.

“I am happy with the response the song is getting from different sectors. The Afro beat on the song should not draw people to classifying my music as I am not limiting myself to specific genres.
Roki’s hit single making waves

“I don’t want to be labelled an urban grooves, rhumba or hip-hop artiste because what I’m doing is just music,” he said.

The song, which was released three weeks ago followed another single “I’ll Go Crazy” that features Mampi.

Roki spoke more on the album which he said was inspired by the legendary group Bundu Boys.

“The title of the album is inspired by the Bundu Boys who have always been an inspiration in my musical career. My roots stem from there because of my uncle Kenny Chatsvatsva who is one of the two surviving members of the group,” he said.

The upcoming offering is going to be Roki’s fourth album and through it, he aims to sell Zimbabwean music beyond our borders.

“There is variety on the album and with it I hope to take our music outside this country.

“This does not mean our local fans are not important but that I want Zimbabwean music to be enjoyed in other countries also,” he said.

“Bundu Boy” is expected to be out in a month.

Expectations of a platinum selling album are high from the musician who is known to turn everything he touches to gold, when he puts his mind to it that is.

Chris Musabayana, the organiser of “Baba aSharo @46” birthday bash held over the weekend at Andy Millar Hall says despite Oliver Mtukudzi’s no show, he was still a happy man.
Mtukudzi was scheduled to perform at the gig to mark Alick Macheso’s 46th birthday but he failed to make it as he had other shows lined up in South Africa and Mozambique the same weekend.

“Look, Tuku didn’t owe me an apology. If he did apologise, he should have apologised to the people that he owed an apology.
Thanks but no thanks, Musabayana tells Tuku
“An apology is a virtue and I believe that Tuku is virtuous and thanks but no thanks. To be honest I sometimes shock myself because if you look at the show it’s been a success.

When I talk of success I don’t talk about the numbers but happiness and that’s what happened, people are happy,” Musabayana said.

Mtukudzi who was billed to perform alongside Suluman Chimbetu, Peter Moyo, Soul Jah Love, Progress Chipfumo and other musicians, apologised to Macheso just a day before the show.

“We wish Macheso all the best with the celebrations and apologise as we are unable to join him at Glamis due to unforeseen circumstances. We are, however, planning a show with Macheso and other musicians in August so that we can celebrate together,” Mtukudzi said.

Surprisingly, Mtukudzi had flown into Harare on Tuesday to perform at the European Council on Tourism and Trade Awards ceremony on Wednesday before jetting out shortly after the event.

The “Todii” singer flew to South Africa, en route to Mozambique where he had a number of studio dates and meetings that have had to be rescheduled several times.
Most people asked why Mtukudzi failed to turn up when the birthday show had been advertised a month in advance.

Others claimed the snub had nothing to do with Mtukudzi/Macheso relations but was a result of a long standing dispute between Musabayana and Mtukudzi.

This, the observers said, emanated from a previous sold out show organised by Musabayana in which Mtukudzi performed and was paid in full but then he later asked for a “top up” to which Musabayana refused.

Pole dancers and dance groups could be jailed for up to two years or fined $700 for operating without a license.

Bev Could Go To Jail
This is according to the Zimbabwe Music Rights Association (Zimura).

You see, what happens is that if you want to play any music in public you need a certificate from them. The fee is about $50 and ensures that you are complying with the Copyright Act.

Zimura southern region manager Clarence Garura says that his organisation will start raiding night clubs to get people who are performing without a license arrested. These nightspots must also pay a a fee to allow music to be performed at their premises.

Bev as well as Zoey has not paid license fees.

Well, we hope they don’t get arrested cause then it would just be weird for the self-help fellas out there who would have to resort to cheap porn on Whatsapp as stimulants.
