Focalistic meets Winky D

After his visit to Zimbabwe was rescheduled in December last year due to Covid-19 lockdown protocols, South African AmaPiano superstar Focalistic will finally make his trip to the country as he is billed for two appearances in Harare and Bulawayo.

The Ke Star hitmaker comes to the city courtesy of More Entertainment’s first anniversary party dubbed “The Dope Party” and for the Bulawayo gig he will rock the stage at BAC Leisure on 10 April.

The gig has a massive line-up with artistes such as Buffalo Souljah, Sandra Ndebele, Ma9, Mzoe 7, Tynie Smart, MJ Sings, Fab G, Boy Nino, Marisa Mombes, King 98 among other artistes.

However, from the line-up, Focalistic has one man to worry about, and it’s Winky D.

The Gombwe reMangoma (King of Zim Dancehall) as Winky D is affectionately known, has given many foreign artistes a torrid time each time they share the stage with him on local soils.

To make matters worse, Winky D, who has been lying low from releasing any quality music lately, has a point to prove since he last performed three years ago in the City of Kings, a place he commands so much fan base.

More Entertainment manager Pardy Zimgiant said the stage was set and patrons must be ready to party hard in a gig that has a line-up that accommodates everyone.

“The preparation is well and everything is on point. As More Entertainment we strive to make a difference on the gigs that we host.

“All the artistes have since confirmed their presence both in Harare and Bulawayo (BAC) and we are ready to roll.

“On the artistes that we approached we made sure that the combinations gel together. We have Focalistic who will be representing AmaPiano, a genre that has taken the world by storm.

“On the Zim Dancehall genre, we have Winky D and Buffalo Souljah, names that don’t need introduction in the game.

“We also managed to scout for local talent that will balance these acts and also as a way of appreciating creatives in our country by giving them such an opportunity,” said Pardy Zimgiant.

General tickets are going out for US$20; VIP tickets are selling for US$50 and the VVIP tickets are pegged at US$100.

Tickets are available at BAC Leisure.
