Slizer’s love for Zimbabwe seems to grow with each visit to the country. The Motswana music and dance star — born Kaledi Naisara — who has toured the country several times over the last couple of years, has decided to launch her D album titled “Bazooker” in Harare. She is expected in the country tomorrow for the launch set for Private Lounge on Thursday. Besides the “Bazooker” D launch, the trip will also see Slizer playing a prominent part in Tongai “Dhewa” Moyo commemorations set for this weekend.

Shows to commemorate the late Dhewa will be held in Kwekwe, Kadoma and Harare on Friday, Saturday and Sunday respectively and Slizer will perform at all shows.

Many musicians, most of whom worked with Dhewa, are expected to support his son Peter “Young Igwe” Moyo honour his late dad at the gigs.

Among the musicians to perform during the commemorations are Alick Macheso, First Farai, Somandla Ndebele, Ronnie Mudhindo, Extra Kwazvose, Tryson Chimbetu, Shiga Shiga, Tocky Vibes, Killer T, Zoey and Bev.

Slizer was also part of the Dhewa commemorations last year when she performed at the Harare gig of the series.

To show her love for Harare fans, Slizer will travel all the way to the capital for the D launch before retracing her steps back to Kwekwe for the launch of the commemorations at Mbizo Stadium on Friday.

Slizer’s Zimbabwean manager — Gift Petro — said besides the business motive of her trips to the country, the musician was happy to be here because of the reception she gets from her fans.

“She is in love with Zimbabwe. She is happy to perform here and she has been talking about this D launch for a long time,” said Petro.

“She likes to work with Zimbabwean musicians and was more than willing to be part of the shows to commemorate Tongai’s life. She has so much respect for Tongai’s music and she has worked with Peter on several occasions.”

To show growing relations between musicians from Botswana and Zimbabwe, another Motswana musician, Charma Gal, is expected to grace the last show of the commemorations at Harare Gardens on Sunday.
