Multiple award-winning South African songbird Zahara is expected to jet into the country this afternoon ahead of her two shows meant to raise funds for Tokwe-Mukosi flood victims.

The concert that serves as an environmental awareness campaign through music,song and dance will be held under the theme “Remembering Tokwe-Mukosi : One Environmental Family”.

Event organiser,Dereck Mpofu said Zahara will arrive at the airport today. She was initially scheduled to arrive yesterday.

“Zahara was supposed to come today (yesterday) but she will now come tomorrow (today) due to reasons beyond our control.

“We expect her at the Harare International Airport at midday,” he said.

Zahara will be headlining concerts slated for tonight at the 7 Arts Theatre in Harare and tomorrow at Amphitheatre in Bulawayo.

For the Harare show Zahara will be supported by local artistes Willis Wataffi, Cynthia Mare and Mpofu while for the Bulawayo concert she will share the stage with Sandra Ndebele and Diana Samkange.

Mare and Mpofu will also perform in Bulawayo.

Environment, Water and Climate Minister Saviour Kasukuwere will be the guest of honour at the Harare show.

Mpofu said all is in place for the two shows.

“All is in place for the shows. The “Green Concert” concept started last year.

“The line up for this year is exceptional and I am expecting a few artistes to make guest appearances especially those that I have collaborated with on my albums,” he said.

Mpofu, who is currently riding high with his latest album, “Diplomatic Alliances” featuring artistse such as Adiona Maboreke, Pastor G and Jah Prayzah, said the concerts would seek to assist Tokwe-Mukosi flood victims.

Mpofu who is the current Goodwill Ambassador for Water Conservation and Zero Littering Campaign said Zahara will no longer be visiting the flood victims living at Chingwizi camp.

“Unfortunately, Zahara is no longer able to go and perform at Chingwizi Camp because of time and we apologise for that.

Initially we wanted her to visit the victims before the two shows but that has failed.

However, we are going ahead and will do the donation on May 16,” he said.

The “Green Concert” is part of the Green Ambassador’s mission to promote positive attitudes and initiatives with regards to environmental issues.

Areas of importance to him include proper waste disposal, humanitarian work and protecting animals.

However, Mpofu urged locals to attend the shows in numbers so as to support the humanitarian cause of the programme.
