SOUTH AFRICA’S popular kwaito and house star Thokozani Ndlovu, aka L’vovo Derrango, is set to stage his debut show “Trade Fair Shutdown” on Saturday in Bulawayo.
The show is slated for Stop Over Bar. L’vovo is a kwaito artiste from Durban. He was discovered by Zakes Bantwini — owner of Mayonie Productions — based in Durban, Kwazulu Natal.
L’vovo has shared the stage with Big Nuz, Dj Tira, Tzozo and Professor.
His popular song Palesa was released last year where he featured Professor. It is still enjoying airplay locally, regionally and internationally.
Speaking to Southern Eye Lifestyle, one of the organiser of the show, Shelton Moyo, aka DJ Spiri’s, said the show is intended to uplift the music industry in Bulawayo.
He added that it is expected to encourage upcoming kwaito and house artistes to network and rub shoulders with the “big fish”.
“The show is to entertain people, uplift the music industry in the City of the Kings and Queens. Upcoming artistes might even get a chance to do some collaboration with such kind of people,” he said.
“If all goes well, more shows will be staged in each and every last Saturday of the month and we will be bringing in different artistes into the country.”
DJ Spiri’s appealed to revellers in Bulawayo and beyond to come in large numbers.
He said the passion and love for music made him dig into his pocket to bring South Africa’s finest, adding that he was dedicating the show to his mother who passed away last month.
“I wish she was there and she could witness that finally my dream has come true, I dedicate this show to her and this is the
beginning. More is to come,” he said.
DJ Spiri’s studied music production, sound and engineering at the DJ Mix Club in South Africa.
“I would like to thank Hillary, the owner of Stop Over bar, Mavusani from X-Mo Squad and Bra Tammy my business partner in South Africa for making this show come true. I am also calling on sponsors who are willing to join in to please do so,” he added.
