SOUTH African expatriate Black Coffee staged a top-class performance on Saturday night at a well-attended gig.
Mostly the city youths attended at Horizon Bar and Restaurant.
Revellers jostled to get pictures with Black Coffee as the artiste thrilled the crowds in the packed joint, much to the delight of the show promoters.
After his scintillating performance Black Coffee urged promoters to conduct their research before hiring foreign acts, citing the recently-flopped L’vovo show.
He said promoters should have seen that at the moment L’vovo has been out of studio for a while working on new projects.
“I’m excited that promoters for this show did a wonderful job because I’m happy with the way they handled this event and the crowd itself was impressive. I urge promoters to always do their research before they bring anyone into the country because it is important for both promoters and artiste to benefit from such shows,” he said.
He added that he has worked hard in his career to produce music of high quality, resulting in him being a brand.
“I am looking forward to continue working hard so that whenever I’m invited to perform here both the promoter and myself would benefit,” he said.
Mduduzi Mdlongwa, the organiser of the show, said he was elated by the support from people of Bulawayo.
“We were happy with the crowd and we would like to thank our supporters. We will continue working hard to make the entertainment industry grow until it reaches a mature stage,” he said.
