POWER FM DJ and former Big Brother Africa :Hotshots (BBA) 2014 housemate Tariro Mharapara, who goes by the name Butterphly, and ex-Legendary member Tatenda Nyerera are set for a gig dubbed “City of Kings Home Coming Party” on Saturday at Club Forty 40.
Show organiser Sibanengi Ndebele, aka DJ Mzoe, who also doubles up as the club’s entertainment manager, said the show was meant to be a fun event.
“It’s going to be a show-and-a-half as we always give our clients exclusive shows,” Ndebele said.
He said fans would get a chance to pose for photographs with the former BBA housemate and get autographs.
He urged fans to attend the show saying they would not be disappointed as a top Zim dancehall act would perform.
Butterphly said Friday’s show would be her first in Bulawayo and she was looking forward to mix and mingle with the city’s revellers, as well as sharing ideas with other female DJs.
“The event would be like a homecoming party for me and I will get a chance to share with people what was happening in the Big Brother Africa house. People will get to know me better on Saturday and I am happy that I will showcase my talent as I will be spinning the decks and will play both local and international music which most young people enjoy,” she said.
She urged female DJs to be confident and believe in themselves, and not to copy other people’s works.
“Disc jockeying is all about being unique. DJs should not copy other people’s work, but they should try and be unique and creative,” she said.
On the other hand, Nyerera said he was excited and looked forward to performing in Bulawayo.
“Like I always do, fans should come prepared and this time I have more energy. This event will be different from other events fans in Bulawayo have ever had.
“A lot has happened and new things have come up and I will share pure nice music with fans in a unique style,” Nyerera said.
