Despite being home for sensational South Africa-based outfit Ndolwane Super Sounds, the border town is entertainment starved.

However, Ruff Rhythm Entertainment manager Thamsanqa Maseko told Southern Eye Lifestyle his new music project is set to quench the thirst of the community of Plumtree.

He said the group was established last year with the aim of promoting local artistes as well as bringing a new look to the entertainment industry in Plumtree and surrounding areas.

“We want our entertainment industry in Plumtree to grow just like in other towns and cities like Bulawayo. Our aim is to promote local artistes and tap talent in young people in Plumtree who are often unrecognised,” he said.

He also confided to Southern Eye Lifestyle that plans to host Bulawayo-born songbird Betty Makaya and Sibanengi Ndebele, known as Dj Mzoe, were afoot.

“We will host Betty Makaya and Dj Mzoe in October at Kombani Lodge in Plumtree.

Local upcoming artistes will get an opportunity to perform at this event,” he added.

He said they were looking forward to launching their four-member music group Ruff Rhythm Entertainment. The group comprises Njabulo Ndebele, Nkosinothado Khumalo and Ntando Dumani.

Maseko appealed for financial assistance to support their productions.
