Masawi will perform at the club together with resident disc jockey Joe Ncube, popularly known as Joe the OG.

In an interview with Southern Eye Lifestyle Ncube said the past show held in June at the club was a huge success, hence Masawi’s return.

“The first show was a success to the extent that people were calling for more, requesting yet another old reunion which we have dubbed ‘Back to Life, Back to Reality’. We have been receiving a positive response from as far as Gweru and we have decided to take this brand to other cities,” he said.

“This show is back and it will be a night filled with old school hits from the ’80s and the ’90s. The mature can brace themselves for yet another old school gig.

“People used to love these gigs, therefore, we want to bring back the good memories. Nowadays the elderly are overlooked by promoters who often target the youth and promote the latest dancehall, hip-hop and house music beats.”

Presently Masawi is a producer and presenter at Star FM. He is considered one of the best old school DJs in the country and is expected to kick-start the proceedings at the Groove from 8pm till late.

Masawi started playing music in 1989 and has played in every top night club in Harare and across the country.

He claims to have been the first to play in various night clubs, among them, Brass Monkey.

He has also played at Windermere and Sneak’s night clubs.

He launched “Old Skool Reunion” — a monthly gig that features Zimbabwe’s hottest DJs — with famous DJs such as United Kingdom-based DJ Kelvin “Soul Supreme” Sifelani, Tich Mataz and others in April this year.
