The tour celebrates Ndoda’s success in Rhumba music since he launched his career in 1994.

“As a way of appreciating the support we have received over the years we have lined up a number of shows over the next two months,” said Ndoda. “It’s high time we started giving back to the community which gave birth to us by supporting our music for the past 20 years. I will perform in South Africa, Botswana and my last shows will be around Zimbabwe.”

Ndoda’s manager, Promise ‘DJ Mapressa’ Sibanda, said they would be shooting a DVD during the tour for Ndoda’s latest album titled ‘Isimomondiya’.

“We will shoot a DVD of Isimomondiya in Victoria Falls as fans are calling for it. We will also engage communities and try to promote community work as we perform our shows,” he said.

Born and bred in Plumtree, Ndoda now lives in Johannesburg where he has successfully instilled a strong level of pride and inspiration in the young population here.

Two years after launching his career with Plumtree Kings, he went to South Africa in 1996 where he released three solo albums that sold over 12,000 copies.

He then went on to start his own band in 2000 called ‘Allen Ndoda and The Challengers’. He is lead vocalist and lead guitarist. To date, he has released 11 albums under his label “Waya-Waya”. He also shares another label, Kujupita, with renowned guitarist Madala boy.

Ndoda has shared the stage with big names in the South African music industry, such as Liquideep, Big Nuz, and Rhythmic Elements.
