The year 2022 has been good to local House and Kwaito artistes as they were given an opportunity to perform and attract potential followers in different parts of Bulawayo.
After staging four shows to promote House and Kwaito music in the city, the House/Kwaito Movement returns with its Kasi-to-Kasi tour as an event will be staged at Isibaya Bar and Butchery in Matshobana on 26 November.
Artistes who will take to the stage include award-winning muso Msiz’Kay, Novuyo Seagirl, Mawiza, Skaiva, La Dee, Amany, Tebza, Mzistoz Mfanafuthi, DJ Sida and Cant Get Music.
The show is absolutely for free.
Sipho Mercent Nyathi, who is one of the organisers of the movement representing Dab Three Events said they were happy that the movement was growing and people seemed to be appreciating local content.
“The preparations for the show are going excellent and this coming Kasi-to-Kasi gig has so much excitement going around online and offline. A lot of people promise to be coming, the partnership with Sibayeni Butchery shows we are in the right direction.
“As for the fans, they have to brace themselves as this is the gateway gig to the festive momentum and the performing artistes are fired up as always.
“When we created the first show (before it turned to a movement), we saw that there was a need to create local audience for local acts to get an opportunity to be on stage and showcase their skills.
“Many local artistes were under the shadows of international acts who come to perform in the city as they will be their curtain raisers.
“Therefore, with that in mind, we then came up with the House-Kwaito movement so that we foster sustainability for local acts to make money through their craft.
We are happy to say that House and Kwaito genres have gained a strong hold in the local arts scene courtesy of this movement,” said Nyathi.
