ALL is set for Betty Makaya’s comeback show at the border town of Plumtree on Friday in which the Kurwizi hit-maker has promised fireworks.
The show dubbed, The Return of Betty Makaya, will be staged at Kombami Lodge.
Organisers said yesterday the show would start in the afternoon. Makaya will be backed by Bulawayo’s top DJ Mzoe, aka Sibanengi Ndebele.
In an interview with Southern Eye Lifestyle Makaya promised to put up a splendid performance.
“I promise a fun-filled day and a great performance. I will take my fans down memory lane,” she said.
The show is Makaya’s first in Zimbabwe after a long period of silence.
“This show is going to be the first of my Zimbabwean shows and I suppose it is fitting to say it is my return. I’m excited to hold my first show in Matabeleland,” she said.
Fans should expect her yesteryear offerings such as Ndakusuwa, For You, Amai, Ndichange Ndiripo and also her latest offerings Chokwadi and Maybe.
Kurwizi topped the charts in 2003 and was eventually voted the song of the year and Makaya voted the best urban grooves artiste in 2004 at the Zimbabwe Music Awards.
The songstress also expressed her deep sorrow at the death of Jamal who featured with her in the song Kurwizi. Jamal died three weeks ago in Mutare.
“It is sad that he is gone. It’s a great loss to the local music fraternity,” said Makaya.
