ONE-time Urban Grooves award winner Betty Makaya has vowed to mesmerise Bulawayo fans when she performs in the city this month end.
The Zimbabwean-born artist residing in neighbouring South Africa, has been “AWOL” for some time raising suspicions she had quit the music industry, but she told Southern Eye Lifestyle she had decided to “do music fulltime”.
“Music is my passion and even if I wanted to quit it wouldn’t be possible because it (music) is my life,” Makaya said.
The Ndakufuwa and Usipo hit-maker is expected to take Bulawayo fans down memory lane when she sets her feet at the “rainbow city” in three weeks’ time.
Meanwhile, Makaya will have shows scheduled for the border town of Plumtree this month-end.
“I look forward to take my fans in Bulawayo down memory lane with their favourite tracks such as Ndakufuwa and Usipo.”
“I have always been inspired by Bulawayo fans,” the diva said.
She, however, raised fears the Bulawayo show could be a flop as she has only been cleared for the Plumtree show.
“For now I have been cleared for the Plumtree show only, but I hope the organisers will acquire clearance for the Bulawayo show on time,” she said.
The soft-spoken musician also revealed that she was working on a new album set to be released soon.
