Botswana music sensation, Naledi Kaisara, better known as Slizer in music circles, is currently in the country and set to work on an album aimed at promoting Zimbabwe as a safe tourist destination.
The Batswana singer and dancer, who is currently on a tour of the countryâ€™s tourist resorts ahead of the production of her album dedicated to the promotion of Zimbabwe as a safe tourist destination, told journalists at a media briefing that she will do everything she can to promote the country through song and dance as the true Zimbabwean story has not yet been told.
â€œI feel it is the only way I can give back to Zimbabwe which is my second home. I am ready to give everything to promote the country and will tell people about the real Zimbabwe,â€ said Slizer.
Zimbabwe Tourism Authority (ZTA) Chief Executive Officer, Mr Karikoga Kaseke has urged local artists to emulate Slizerâ€™s project,Â saying music is a powerful tool that can be used to correct the negative perception generated by the western media.
â€œWe hope Zimbabwean musicians will follow her approach. Let us support and assist her so that her attempt is not futile,â€ Mr Kaseke said.
The musical sensation rose to fame with her 2008 House-Kwasa album, O Tswa Kae, which made her a darling of many local fans.
The artist has performed many shows in the country, including at the 21st February movement bash and has done collaborations with Sungura maestro, Alick Macheso.Â
