Zimbabwe: Sports Diner to Host Sulu's Home-Coming Show

Sports Diner will play host to Suluman Chimbetu's welcome show this Friday. The dendera star had a successful tour of the UK where he staged five shows. Suluman Chimbetu's publicist, Joe Nyamungoma, said the show would mark Sulu's return.

"To those who are obsessed with the dendera genre, the two weeks Sulu has been away is a long time. This will mark Sulu's return and we are hoping to stage a few shows before the end of this year," he said.

Sulu had a successful flirtation with his UK's fans; initially he was scheduled to have four shows but because of public demand he had to add another show.

However, Sulu has to quickly forget about his successful tour of UK and concentrate on the local fans that are sometimes hard to please.

This could be an opportune night for some fans that have not see him perform songs from his latest album "Syllabus." The album carries the hit track, "Sean Timba," featuring the unmistakable voice of contemporary crooner Jah Prayzah.

The album has catapulted him to new heights with some of his fans saying that the young man is coming of age and is slowly evolving to match his late father, Simon.

It is, however, the experience of Allan Chimbetu and Solo Makore which has steadied the dendera ship.

The two great musicians who have seen it all in the music industry have been handy for Sulu in live shows.

Their well choreographed dances and vocal backing abilities have made Sulu's live performances a marvel to watch.

It's proving to be true that to add is to strengthen and subtract is to weaken, Sulu strengthened his band by welcoming back these two veteran musicians.
