Maskandi musicians itching to perform in Bulawayo

South African Maskandi musicians are itching to hold shows in Zimbabwe. If all goes according to plan, Chwepheshe, born Sizathu Hlabisa, and Qondani could take their Maskandi music to Bulawayo, where the genre is very popular, within the next month or two.

The artists, who worked with fallen Maskandi singer – Umgqumeni and with 10 albums between themselves are already in negotiations with some Bulawayo-based promoters and are hopeful of reaching an agreement in less than two weeks.

Chwepheshe is currently flying high with his self-titled 2011 offering, which he is in the process of sending to Zimbabwe prior to the show. Chipweshe said he had long thought that my music was being played in Zimbabwe, only to discover that it was not and he is now working on ways of sending it there.

Mthethwa, whose stage name is Qondani, whose 2011 offering is Iwashi, promised fans value for money when the show finally takes off in Zimbabwe.

Qondani said the aim of their shows will be to unite Zimbabweans and South Africans in a way that will stop this crazy xenophobia that has painted a bad name of South Africans on the continent.

Their manager, Themba Mazibuko, said while their shows were tentatively meant for Bulawayo, they would travel anywhere else in the country should there be high demand for the musicians.
