Dancehall chanters will for once, bury their hatchet that has dogged the music scene in recent months when they take on sungura musicians at the 10th anniversary of the Chipaz Bhora-Umdlalo match slated for Gwanzura Stadium on April 12.

The football match rich in drama and laugh-out-loud moments will see musicians trading their guitars and microphones for football boots.

Expect misses, near misses and hits when the youthful side comprising dancehall chanters take to the pitch.

On one hand, there is no doubt Zimbabwean Dancehall is at its highest peak these days but it would be interesting to see how the youngsters will fair in the field of play.

On the other hand, sungura side is blessed to have veterans in music but it remains to be seen whether that would translate into goals or not.

Flamboyant singer Energy Mutodi of the “Chigorodanda” fame is set to feature at the match for the first time.

To complete the line-up there will be promoters Partson “Chipaz” Chimbodza and Josh Hozheri. The team has its own talented players in the mould of Victor, Tambaoga,

Zhakata and Baba Charamba who has goalkeeping tactics.

Word doing the rounds is that Pastor Charamba always prays before, during and after the match so that no goal is scored past him. Macheso who plays as a striker is a crowd favourite whenever he is in possession of the ball despite his technical inadequacies.

The dancehall team which is made up of “Jah Man” as they are commonly known in other circles, will be led by none other than Winky D aka the Ninja President or is it, the self-proclaimed “Messi Wereggae” .
