BULAWAYO reverberated to sounds of Cassper Nyovest on Saturday night in an event that saw multitudes of fans thronging Hartsfield Rugby Ground to watch the South African rapper strutting on stage.
Nyovest, real name Refiloe Maele Phoolo was under pressure to cancel the show following xenophobic attacks in South Africa.
Local group Djembe Monks fronted Nyovest in a scintillating performance. Harare dancehall ninja Winky D took the stage after.
Djembe Monks kept the crowd on their feet for close to two hours through a series of their famous songs.
Winky D pulled a shocker thereafter as many revellers could not believe that it was him. Clad in an Egyptian chasuble looking like a pharaoh, the crowd was amazed for a while until he sung his famous hits.
The first track pulled the crowd closer to the stage and they sang along with the dancehall artiste.
Winky D did not disappoint entertaining the crowd with various tunes from first album to the latest.
The pint-sized music maestro Nyovest put up an electrifying performance through sheer exuberance.
Hit track Doc Shebeleza thrilled revellers. The crowd went musically mad and danced to his tunes. Nyovest, famed for his song Phuma Kimi thanked the people of Bulawayo for support they gave to him and promised to return and stage more shows in future.
However, driving revellers were irked that they were not allowed to drive their vehicles into the venue.
Show organisers had to work flat out the whole night to ensure vehicles were protected from criminal elements.
