SUPERSTAR Oliver Mtukudzi rekindles his romance with music lovers at ZimCafe Hotel and Conference Centre tomorrow for yet another dance on Valentine's Day starting at 8pm. Backed by Enoch Piroro on bass, Sam Mataure on drums, the trio is set to serenade lovers with some laidback and some uptempo tunes to complete the merry mood.

While the music will be playing, guests will be treated to a three-course meal courtesy of ZimCafe Hotel and the emcee of the night will be urban grooves star Sani Makhalima of the "Usadaro" fame.

Tuku, as his fans lovingly call him, is not new to such events and he knows what song to play to get lovers into the merry mood. Now aged 60 with as many albums to his credit, music lovers will not be starved of music.

The show will also give fans an opportunity to request some of their favourite music in a cosy atmosphere with their idol.

His all time classic "Mbabvu Yangu" taken off the album "Svovi Yangu" is a favourite of many while "Wagona" from the album "Tsivo" is likely to be on the playlist. Do you still remember "Sugar Pie"?

Well, it was one of the love songs from Tuku's yesteryear albums. Despite being an old song it still sounds great though he does not play it often during live shows.

We do not want to pre-empt what will be happening at ZimCafe but those who want to enjoy themselves are assured of a memorable Valentine's Day. It remains to be seen whether or not he will play "Watitsvata" or "Chiringa" which are new songs from his latest album "Sarawoga".

A spokesperson said there will be prizes for best dance and best dressed couple at the show as well as complimentary roses and cocktails for the ladies.

The last time he Tuku featured at ZimCafe he left an indelibel mark and fans would be pleased if they witness a repeat of that show.

Also part of the entertainment line-up will be Huggies Entertainment.
