Zimbabwe: First Farai in Three-Day Centenary Gig

SELF-PROCLAIMED sungura prince First Farai has decided to spend the whole of this weekend at Club Changaz in Centenary. In a first of its kind, Farai and Hurudza Band will play today, tomorrow and Sunday at the same venue. According to show promoter, Zakaria Five, they invited the band for three consecutive days to allow everyone to see First Farai.

"Last year when First Farai came here to play he was forced to play for two days as the fans wanted more of him. So this time around we have said to the fans, 'Buy a ticket today and use it the whole weekend'", said Five also known as Changamire.

However, there is a catch for Saturday and Sunday.

"You have to buy either a beer or two drinks and produce your Friday night ticket and then you get in," said Five. First Farai will not be going it alone as he will be supported by Hardlife Chakanetsa of Muzarabani Express, Friday Nafuko and Muchechetere Express and Genius K, who once played at the same venue masquerading as Freeman.

Said Genius K: "I admit that I wronged patrons of Club Changaz so I have made amends with Changamire and here I am back to play my own songs. I just want to show the people that I am not a copycat." The show will also be spiced up with local dancing queens as well as DJ Jojo making it a fete of its own kind.
