The much-awaited dancehall reggae fiesta which had been initially scheduled for December 16 last year, but was postponed due to the death of one of the band member’s mother is on this weekend.

In a video clip he posted on his web site, the “Gully god” as Mavado is affectionately known to fans, said he is looking forward to performing in Zimbabwe a country which he described as a blessed land.

Promoter of the show, Clint Robinson said as a way to bring Mavado to his fans doorstep, the artist is now scheduled to play at two gigs, with another show slated for Chitungwiza Aquatic Complex on Saturday.

However fans will not get in cheap as entrance fees have been hiked from the initial $5 and $10 to $15 and $20 per head.

Born David Brooks in Kingston Jamaica in 1981, Mavado first came on the musical scene in 2004, with the hit single Real McKoy on the Anger Management riddim, before cementing his position in the dancehall reggae circles with “So Special” which was a favourite of many locally.

Mavado has two albums to his name and has won several accolades in international circles.
