Urban Loving Concerts started with Nox who made a break on the local scene with hit singles such as Chitsidzo and Ndinoshuwa, when he relocated to South Africa.
“The idea behind these concerts is to at least have one show in each province in South Africa and reconnect with our fans,” Nox said.
“This is a great show not to miss and a time for all Zimbabweans to network and have fun while they have a taste of the new productions in the genre.”
The two-legged show will take place on March 4 and 5 at Mabaleng Sports Bar, Randburg and advance tickets are retailing for R60 and R70 at the gates.
Nox is reportedly rocking radio charts in South Africa through his latest album Tanakirana which is said to be receiving commendable airplay on stations like Rainbow FM, YFM and Metro FM.
Trevor Dongo, who has made a name for himself overnight with his hit song Nerunako from his latest album titled Ruvarashe, will have the honour of showcasing his talent abroad for the first time.
“It’s such a great honour being called to perform on such a platform and this proves to be the only way urban grooves music can be recognised internationally, just as Kwaito has a following in Zimbabwe”.
XQ will be one of the artists joining Nox, Trevor and Cindy on stage at a concert that is expected to draw many Zimbabweans based in South Africa.
Some of the artists who have performed on Urban Loving Concerts in South Africa include Rockford Josphats (Roki), Alicias Musimbe (Maskiri), Sniper Storm (Donald Chirisa) and Leonard Mapfumo.
The artists in the urban grooves have in the past faced criticism for being uncreative.
Staging live performances in foreign countries could be a stepping stone for several artists who would gain exposure and learn the basics of the required approach in this industry.
