Multi-award-winning musician and choreographer Mzoe 7 has further spread his wings by trying a hand on a new path in the arts industry as he has found a slot to be a presenter on Zimpapers Television Network (ZTN) Prime.
ZTN Prime is part of multi-media giant Zimpapers and it will be accessed by customers who have a DSTV Premium, Compact, Compact Plus, Access and Lite Liquid on Channel 294.
Mr Gaga Gugu as Mzoe 7 is affectionately known, will be the main presenter for Days at Ekasi, a programme that will be unfolding the Kasi lifestyle, lingo and the basic history of Bulawayo township which will be the main topic on each particular episode.
The Channel will also broadcast other programmes from sport, lifestyle, entertainment, business, news and current affairs soap operas, drama as well as children’s programmes. ZTN Prime officially launched today (24 May) on DSTV for viewership and Mzoe 7 said he was over the moon for striking such a lucrative deal with ZTN Prime as it would further his career on different levels and aspects of the showbiz industry.
He said Days at Ekasi will be airing every Friday at 7.30 pm, and Mzoe 7, said the show would be unfolding fresh Kasi stories.
“The programme is basically about touring iKasi with a tour guide who will be someone who knows well the place. His or her task will be explaining to me as a presenter and the audience and educating us about the lifestyle of that particular Kasi.
“Every township has its own uniqueness and, on this show, we will be taken on a journey that will allow us to have knowledge about the history, way of life and the myths of that township. It’s going to be a great experience,” said Mzoe 7.
Meanwhile, Mzoe 7 was among artistes who entertained delegates who attended the official launch of ZTN Prime at a glitz and fabulous ceremony held last week in Harare where Zimbabwean celebrities, socialites and officials from different institutes were in attendance.
On the official launch, ZTN Prime general manager Nomsa Nkala said the channel would offer “purely Zimbabwean content with a fresher outlook”.
