Zimbabwe: Shoko Festival Back With Peace in the Hood

Shoko Festival has announced its theme for the 2018 edition as 'Peace in The Hood'. Shoko is set to re-imagine its format this year as it reveals a new programme structure that makes Peace In The Hood the main event in Chitungwiza. Shoko 2018 is set to run from 28th - 30th September.

"We chose the theme Peace in The Hood because Peace in the Hood is the main event this year and has become the biggest event of Shoko Festival with an attendance of over 5000 people. We also chose Peace in The Hood because after the 2018 Harmonized Elections period it is important to get people together to celebrate peace, unity, togetherness and doing that through Shoko Festival," says Shoko Festival Director Comrade Fatso,

"We have also released our Call for Artists this year, and we hope to get applications from some really dope upcoming artists like young rappers, comedians and spoken word artists. We are looking for a diverse range of young artists to be going with. For the comedy night we are looking for dope comedians and for the hip hop night we are looking for young rappers, singers and urban artists and the same for the Sunday main event Peace in the Hood. If you are a rapper, comedian, DJ, dancehall artist or spoken word artist and your work is popping, we will offer you the platform for you to showcase alongside other explosive local artists as well as international acts" he added

Shoko Festival is Zimbabwe's longest running urban culture festival and is a product of Magamba Network.
