Spring Oasis is set to be a hype of activities this Africa Day, with the hosting of Kariba based Zimdancehall artists who will battle it out with Karoi based artists for the best chanter.
Kariba based producer and promoter Mr Blessings Vunganai confirmed the development which he said is meant not to be a competition but an opportunity for young artists to show case their talents.
Mr Vunganai said the event is also meant to create a link up between artists and sharing of talent with other budding musical voices..
“The event is set for this weekend and is yet another Vunganai promotions. Plans to host this prestigious event are at an advanced stage. We intend this platform to stand as an opportunity for young dancehall artists to show what they are made of and share talent while also entertaining fans,” he said.
The Kariba based promoter urged dancehall fanatics to come in their numbers and witness real talent that come from their neighbourhood.
“Numbers must come in abundance and witness on their own the talent that we have here in Mashonaland West. It’s going to be legendary hence the first ever clash between these two neighbors,” added the young promoter.
He pleaded with all those who will grace the event to shy away from violence as this has painted a negative picture to most dancehall clashes.
“Violence is the vice that has killed the entertainment part of our shows and should not be condoned in every way possible. We are all human and are heterogeneous but we have to respect each other especially fans who support our rivals,” he said.
Some of the artists expected to perform include James Mshefu a.k.a Ras Jinny, Ras Taku, Rejoice Ndaradzi a.k.a Empress Rejo and the self proclaimed Karoi dancehall king Joseph Matigimu a.k.a Ras Jose among others.
