Although tomorrow might be Friday the 13th – a date which is normally associated with the dark and superstitious things of the underworld – it will be a celebratory day for superstar Oliver Mtukudzi as he returns to his hometown of Kwekwe. The katekwe exponent will perform at a car fitment and entertainment centre Autoworx Club in the Midlands town for the second time after his last performance at the joint in 2012 while he was celebrating his 60th birthday.

The gig is expected to reunite Tuku with his old friends and fans in Kwekwe where he lived for many years together with his wife Daisy before deciding to move to Harare and eventually his current home in Norton.

The legendary musician has a special place in his heart for the town where his wife hails from and tomorrow he will without doubt be fired up for the act that is likely to prove to all and sundry that he is the grandmaster that he has always been in the music game.

Show organiser Oswald Mashonganyika said it is always a pleasure to host the superstar and it being his second time at Autoworx, the expectation is high for a night of great partying.

“It might be Friday the 13th, but nothing will take anything away from Tuku’s show since he is very close to and dear to this town. He is making a date with his old colleagues here and we are proud to be hosting him,” Mashonganyika said.

This is the first time that Tuku will be taking his latest album “Mukombe Wemvura” to the gold mining town and his fans are in for a memorable treat when he belts out the songs carried on the new offering together with golden classics like “Mutserendende” and “Mutavara”, among others.

The superstar will be supported by youthful Terry and The Bliss outfit.

“We decided to rope in Terry and The Bliss as a way of promoting young talent and by bringing them on the same stage with the veteran musician.

“We are very sure that they will learn something from him,” Mashonganyika said.
