CONGOLESE musician Koffi Olomide will be one of the top entertainers at the wedding of the First Daughter Bona Mugabe in Harare on Saturday as the Mugabes pull all the stops to make their beloved daughter's wedding a big success.
Bona ties the knot with pilot husband Simba Chikore.
Olomide, a Democratic Republic of Congo national, jetted into the country together with President Robert Mugabe on Wednesday evening as the veteran leader returned from the DRC where he had attended a Comesa summit.
The musician, according to sources, has been invited by First Lady Grace Mugabe, who is said to be a huge fan of rhumba music.
Details however still remain sketchy due to the level of security surrounding the wedding that is scheduled for the family's plush home in Borrowdale Brooke.
The wedding comes after a glitzy bridal shower held for Bona at Iron Mask Farm in Mazoe last weekend.

On Wednesday it was reported that the Mugabes were hiring top of the range vehicles for use at the wedding which is also expected to be graced by several leaders from all over the world.
Several trucks also drove into the country earlier this month with furniture to be used at the event.
The wedding, perhaps the most high profile marriage ceremony in Zimbabwe since President Mugabe's own wedding with Grace 1996, is reported to have cost ratepayers over a million in sprucing up infrastructure that includes roads.
It also comes just a week after another expensive party for Mugabe as the nation celebrated his 90th birthday at a function held at Rudhaka Stadium on Sunday.
