Lozikeyi steals the show


THE Lozikeyi Primary School marimba band put up a flawless performance entertaining guests at a Southern Eye first anniversary celebration at the publication’s offices in Bulawayo.



The band led by Morgan Jamela played various songs that ranged from traditional and classic to contemporary beats.

Jamela, who is the teacher in charge of the band, said he was impressed by the level of performance exhibited by his band members.

“As a band, we managed to live up to the expectations of the people that we performed for. We are looking forward to holding such performances at various companies so that the band grows and continues to provide entertainment of high quality,” Jamela said.


Another teacher Siphunyuziwe Dube said they were delighted that the marimba band had been invited to perform at the first birthday of Southern Eye.

“As a band, we are elated that our efforts have finally paid off. We are pleased by the invitation that was extended to us by
Southern Eye and we hope that we will be invited to perform for other organisations,” Dube said.

Although pleased with his band’s performance, Jamela expressed concern that it does not have proper costumes and has been forced to play wearing school uniforms.


He appealed to the corporate world and well-wishers to assist the school in acquiring appropriate costumes for the pupils.
