The Dendera giant who early this year gave a splendid performance at the “2011 Kickstart Show” at the same venue will this time be catering for both adults and youths.
“We realised that Sulu is the man of the moment and he has fans in all age groups thus we have found it important to start hosting family shows so that parents can come with their children to enjoy the music,” said Spillway Pub and Restaurant Director, Kenneth Madangure.
Madangure said there would also be entertainment by popular rhumba group BV Labien Musica with their energetic and skilful dance moves before the main performance.
He said they were also going to create enough space for children to play where there would also be a jumping castle.
“We are promising the crowds an afternoon of fireworks because when Sulumani gets on the stage he will not stop until they drop,” Madangure said.
He said in the past, Spillway had been popular with events which would mostly cater for adults and they had decided to start family shows, which would be hosted on a weekly basis starting in the afternoon.
Madangure said they would create a platform for families to spend more time together in an interesting way.
“This is going to be Sulumani’s second performance after his successful act at the beginning of the year and after this we will certainly bring more local artists to the stage,” he said.
Spillway hosted the massive show with Jamaican reggae artist, King Sounds together with other local artistes including the Transit Crew and Legendary Sounds during the end of 2010.
“We are encouraging people to come in their numbers to witness new dances and songs from Sulu’s recent offering Non Stop which has received a positive response from the public since its release end of last year,” he said.
Madangure, who is also the marketing manager of Emperor Productions, the team that brought King Sounds to Zimbabwe, said he believed there was so much talent in Zimbabwe and 2011 was their year to unveil it.
He said revellers could also expect fireworks throu-ghout the year at the family shows with local artistes like Alick Macheso, Oliver Mtukudzi and Mike Madamombe, popularly known as “Mic Inity”.
