Professor set to rock Harare's Chez Ntemba

Top South African kwaito act Professor is heading to Zimbabwe for a one-off gig scheduled for Chez Ntemba Nightclub on April 5. The "Durbanite", who was born Langa Kholile, is expected to rock Harare alongside another kwaito sensation called Character for what has been dubbed "serious partying" at the upmarket club.

The duo will be supported by some of Harare's talented performers, among them rhumba-plus star Madiz, Dija, Trae Yung and Noxa.

Resident disc jockeys led by Dollar Bill, Ben, Wale, Luckerz and Seductive Gee will be mixing things on the decks until the early hours of the morning.

According to the organiser of the show, Hweva Mvura aka Dollarbill, the kwaito stars are expecting to set the roof on fire with some magical dance moves and spanking new vibes.

Last year Professor, with his popular album, "University of Kalawa Jazmee", scooped three awards. The man vindicated the popular Durban kwaito sound when he won Best Kwaito Male Artiste of the Year and MTN Record of the Year with the hit single "Lento".

Professor holds the distinguished honour of staying true to the music and message reflecting today's urban culture of post-apartheid South Africa.

According to the Vega Records website: "Without question, he (Professor) is lyrically skilled at imparting an important lesson: music is a universal language. The songs 'Imoto' and 'Jezebel' are deeply rooted in the distinctive sound of kwaito, which evolved in the 1990s in townships and continues to reflect the influences of South African music and politics, hip-hop and house.

"On both popular dance tracks, Professor liberally applies a choice mix of hard-driving beats and strong bass lines, percussive loops and precisely delivered vocals over hypnotic instrumentals. Early in his career, Professor made a name for himself when Oskido paired him with another Durban kwaito artiste, T'Zozo. The 2005 collaboration produced a pivotal hit and South African dance anthem, 'Woz 'e Durban', and signaled the start of something big."
