Bulawayo’s fast-rising hip-hop sensation Luminous (Tinashe Mtetwa) is set to write his own history in the Southern African music scene as he has been invited to be part of performers at this year’s The Music Imbizo Festival in South Africa.
The Music Imbizo is an international music business conference, exhibition and film festival which collects various music industry stakeholders under one roof to map a positive way forward for the music industry in Africa.
It is a platform to exhibit, network, share expertise and knowledge.
This year’s edition of the festival is set to take place in KwaZulu Natal’s Durban city from 6 to 11 September.
Luminous will be performing on 9 September alongside Musiholiq, another youngster who rose to fame after singing a hook, on Big Zulu’s AmaMillion hit song.
“It’s an honour to have been invited to perform at The Music Imbizo Festival because only people with visible works are invited to be part of the affair.
“Covid-19 had halted the annually held festival but it’s back now and as a young artiste who rose and conquered the pandemic, I am happy to be part of the festival this time around,” said Luminous.
The Ungayisusa Uzoyimela lyricist who has performed in Botswana and Zambia, said he doesn’t take his first South African gig for granted and he promised a top of the drawer performance.
“This gig is an honour to me and I don’t take it lightly because it gives me the confidence to say I have an exportable product.
“As I have performed in other parts of Southern Africa, I don’t want to drop the ball at this stage.
“I treat every show like it’s the last gig I will ever play on, and at The Music Imbizo I promise that it will be a movie, an experience that those who will be in attendance will forever cherish,” said Luminous.
