Award winning gospel musician Mathias Mhere is set to perform at the Carnival Music Concert slated for this Saturday at the Civic Centre Grounds in Harare.
The concert which will mark the end of the carnival will see Mhere sharing the stage with the likes of Pastor Charles and Olivia Charamba, Winky D, Jah Prayzah, Suluman Chimbetu among others.
International artistes to perform include the like of Werrason Ngiama Makanda from Democratic Republic of Congo, Uhuru, Dr Malinga, Babes Wodumo, Kalawa and Busiswa from South Africa.
Mhere has promised to give fans a polished act, where he will dish out various tracks from his wide discography spanning over five years. "It is a great honour to be performing at the carnival and music fans should get ready to put on their dancing shoes as l will give them the best of my music especially songs from the latest album," he said.
The "Favour" hitmaker last week launched a DVD for the new album and a single titled "Ndakunzwa Mweya". On the same day, there will be street parade and processions that will start along Simon Muzenda Street (Fourth Street), down Jason Moyo Avenue to the Civic Grounds.
More than 20 countries are participating at this year's carnival that is running under the theme "One Love: Our Unity, Our Pride". Brazil and Cuba will clash at the samba night that will take place at the Harare International Conference Centre on Wednesday.
On Friday, rhumba ace Werrason will also headline Rhumba Night at Cresta Oasis Hotel where he will share the stage with the likes of Diamond Musica, BV Labien Musica and Lady Storm.
Zodwa Wabantu who was banned to participate at the carnival street party will now be performing at Private Lounge only on Friday night.
