sulumani vs macheso.jpgThree former Alick Macheso’s Orchestra Mberikwazvo band members who deserted the musician to join Sulumani Chimbetu have proved that they are now full-time members of the Dendera group when they performed at Jazz 105 this weekend.

Franco Slomo, a dancer, backing vocalist, Elton Nyaropa and lead guitarist, Noel Nyazanda, said they are now full-time Orchestra Dendera Kings band members and promised fireworks with their new outfit.

Ochestra Dendera Kings leader Sulumani Chimbetu said his band is now stronger, adding that some members who deserted him a couple of weeks ago  say they are now willing to come back.

This is not the first time that Sulumani Chimbetu has had to incorporate performers from other groups.

Last year, one influential founder band member of the late Sungura giant, Tongai Moyo, Musaope Nkoma, joined the Dendera Kings.
