NEW kid on the block Baba Harare – real name Braveman Chizvino – shares the stage with dendera maestro Suluman Chimbetu at Tanza Centre in Chitungwiza Friday night (tonight) marking his first step into the music industry.
The musician launched his debut album ‘Chikwama Changu’ at Jazz 24/7 on Thursday at an event that was oversubscribed.
Though the mood in the house was dampened by the poor public address system, the massive turnout predicts a bright future for the former Jah Prayzah guitarist.
His credentials, however, will go under scrutiny at Tanza Centre tonight when he warms the stage for Sulu who is also basking in the glory of his current album Jamboree.
Apart from the technical glitches Thursday night Baba Harare proved, during his launch, that he has the stamina required in local showbiz.
His album launch was attended by a number of musicians, among them his former paymaster Jah Prayzah, Andy Muridzo, Tendai Dembo and Kireni Zulu.
His former workmates at 3rd Generation band Gonyeti and Generator were also present and they joined him on stage, much to the delight of the crowd.
The focus, however, is on tonight’s show, thanks to Sulu who gave him the platform.
Interestingly, Sulu shares the stage with another former Jah Prayzah member Pamela ‘Gonyeti’ Zulu at Mushandirapamwe Hotel Saturday night.
That same night (Saturday) Baba Harare stages a solo show at Inner Café in the CBD.
Elsewhere tonight, Peter Moyo celebrates his DVD album at Jazz 24/7 where he will be supported by Jairos Chabvonga.
In Avondale at 7 Arts Theatre, Jah Prayzah, Sam Dondo and Ammara Brown perform at the Ignition Concert.
