UP-and-coming Zimdancehall artistes, Senko Assassin and Wanguda (DJ Tawaz), are set to invade Gwanda town this Saturday for a show dubbed Colouring Life at BBQ Gardens.
The underrated Senko, who chants in his native isiNdebele tongue, will sample tracks from his upcoming yet to be named album for the Gwanda crowd, while Wanguda will also do the same for Zimdancehall music fans.
DJs Warren and T Money will be on the decks with unheralded dancer Cookie expected to add some sparkle to the line up.
DJ Nash aka Mr Abra, who manages the two artistes, said he was taking the Bulawayo Zimdancehall artistes to Gwanda to debunk the myth that Zimdancehall artistes are only confined to Harare.
“I want people from different parts of the country to be exposed to Zimdancehall music from Bulawayo. Senko is very talented and has been in the game for some time now as well as Wanguda, a versatile artiste,” said DJ Nash.
He said patrons will have a night to remember.
“It’s going to be an epic night with two of Bulawayo’s dancehall gurus. During the night, we’ll introduce Cookie, our new dancer. Both artistes are launching their albums soon so the crowd will sample their new songs.”
Wanguda, better known as DJ Tawaz from Stop Over bar and Private Lounge where he deejayed, is famous for his 2014 track Passa Passa dance. Senko on the other hand is a product of the Amakhosi Cultural Centre talent search programme, Dreams to Fame.
DJ Nash said the show had been dubbed Colouring Life: “It goes back to the title of Wanguda’s album Who Am I which is a reflection of his music journey which started off hard but now things are taking shape so it’s more than colourful hence Colouring Life,” he said.
