It will be one of his special visits to the city when he reunites with his old friends.
“Tuku last performed in Kwekwe in 2009 as part of his countywide tour which saw him touring various cities, including Chitungwiza, Norton, and Bulawayo as well as Kwekwe,” said Tuku Music publicist, Shepherd Mutamba.
Mutamba said the last time Tuku performed in Kwekwe, he shared the stage with his late son, Sam, who was also born in the city.
He said during the show Tuku will showcase hits from his latest albums Rudaviro and Abia’ngu (Duets of My Time).
“Freddie Manjalima aka Kapfupi and Munya Mataruse will be the supporting acts for the show that will start at 9pm, costing US$5 per head,” he said.
Mutamba said Mataruse, who had previously performed with Tuku on his maiden tour outside Harare and Norton, would be basking in the glory of the recent successful launch of his debut album titled Dengu reMhodzi.
He said Tuku’s Kwekwe fans were ardent supporters of the katekwe exponent and had been making incessant requests for Tuku to return to perform in the city.
He said the fans had been complaining they were being sidelined in preference for neighbouring towns such as Kadoma and Gweru where Tuku performed last year.
“As a former resident of Kwekwe, Tuku has undying love for the city and the fans are looking forward to a great Heroes’ Day holiday show,” said Mutamba.
