The colourful group, which arrived in South Africa early last month, was forced to extend its stay in the neighbouring country by an extra four weeks, after their fans clamoured for more shows than the scheduled two.
Promoter, Patrick Sibanda of Livingway Promotions, who brought the Plumtree-based group to South Africa, told The Zimbabwean that they would perform their last three shows in Johannesburg before leaving for Limpopo in the next week.
“They were well-received and it really showed that they are one of the most loved Zimbabwean groups,” said Sibanda. “Everywhere they performed, they attracted a full house and their visit was really worth it. We are now planning to make their visit an annual event and they will be back here next year.”
Sibanda said that the group, which was scheduled to perform in a Johannesburg hotel last night, would wind up its Johannesburg tour with another performance at the Ivory Park Youth Centre in Thembisa, Ekurhuleni next Saturday.
Mokis, by far the biggest name in Matabeleland Rumba at the moment, are touring South Africa for the first time in more than three years.Post published in: Entertainment
