An old saying has it that love is not who you can see yourself with, it is who you can’t see yourself without.

Dubbed The Official 2017 Valentine’s Ballet, the unique event will see businesspeople, captains of industry, artists, media, lovebirds and professionals from all walks of life celebrating love in a business environment. Afro-fusion protégé Mbeu and Mhodzi Tribe back to back with afro-jazz songstress Myrah Dube will serenade guests all night long.
Zibah chairman Takemore Mazuruse said they had designed the Valentine’s Day ballet with a view to celebrate love while inculcating in locals a spirit of excellence in all their pursuits.
“Love is indeed a beautiful thing and as we celebrate the month of love, we have organised a unique Valentine’s Day ballet through which we intend to strengthen lovers’ unions while sharing insights with those still to find love on how best to manage matters of the heart,” said Mazuruse.
“Our key speakers on the day will also delve into business opportunities in Zimbabwe so that in tune with the Zibah mission, we create a culture of excellence and hard work among all Zimbabweans. Zibah is a key enabler and we are home to all progressive citizens regardless of race, creed or political affiliation.”
To give impetus to the event, CEO and founder of Econometer Global Capital, Christopher Mugaga and ProAir International CEO and founder George Munengwa will be the key speakers at the event.
They will speak on business opportunities in Zimbabwe and functional relationships and marriages for viable businesses and careers respectively.
Zibah vice-chairman Exevia Maoneke also highlighted that they had enlisted the support of local corporates, among them fashion powerhouse JanJam, home and office décor experts Kitchen-Link, air conditioning company ProAir International, Zimbabwe Union of Musicians, entertainment joints Wheel and Ease (Wezhaz) Bar and Club Joy Centre, as well as printing company Impressive Signs as they seek to reward lovers with some exciting prizes.
“Because Zibah works with local businesses and various progressive stakeholders, we have engaged JanJam, ProAir International, Kitchen-Link, Zimbabwe Union of Musicians, Wheel and Ease, Club Joy Centre and Impressive Signs for various prizes to be won on the day. It’s going to be quite an experience and we are ready to host Zimbabweans from all walks of life come Tuesday,” Maoneke said.
The performing duo of Mbeu and Myrah Dube both concurred that they were ready to blow music lovers away and were honoured to associate with Zibah, an organisation fast claiming its space among serious business and arts players in Zimbabwe.
“As the billed artists, we have both done our homework and we are geared for the Valentine’s Day ballet at Rainbow Towers’ VIP Lounge. It’s indeed going to be a VIP performance and we are honoured to associate with Zibah — a highly progressive organisation,” said Mbeu.
Kitchen-Link’s CEO and founder Richard Muchaka said celebrating love and partnering Zibah at the Valentine’s Day ballet was in line with the company’s ideals as a business.
“Kitchen-Link is about building homes. We are anchored on strong family ideals and we believe our products actually help bring the ‘home’ into people’s houses and we have some exciting programmes for those attending the Tuesday Valentine’s Day ballet,” he said.
