DANCEHALL lovers are set have a weekend to remember at uMqombothi Sports Bar in Nkulumane when Chitungwiza-born dancehall chanter Ricky Fire, real name Thulani Takavada, makes his debut performance alongside other Bulawayo artistes at the joint tonight.
The show, which kicks off at 6pm, is expected to be one of the weekend’s star attractions.
Speaking to Southern Eye Lifestyle, the organiser of the show Walter Ncube, aka DJ Sweeto, promised to stage one of the best shows ever in Bulawayo.
He said Nashie, Real Kid, Bovas, Sean Milla, Khoi Khoi and other Bulawayo artistes were billed to perform with Ricky Fire.
DJs Zulu, Sherriff Candy, Phibz, Martin, Sweeto and Stones would be spinning the decks.
“Ricky Fire will mesmerise uMqombothi Sports Bar and have a chance to share the stage with some Bulawayo artistes,” Ncube said.
“Ricky Fire is one of the top Zimbabwean dancehall artistes with his hit track Kumba Kunouya Kuno and we will also try and blend in with some of our artistes because we want them to get a chance to share the stage with and rub shoulders with top artistes. Most of them will benefit from the show as they will get to learn new things.”
Ricky Fire, who made his breakthrough in 2002, has done many projects with different dancehall chanters that include Lady B, Junior Fire and Guspy Warrior, among others.
