MULTISKILLED arts practitioner Saimon Mambazo Phiri is set to launch a new entertainment event, Live in Bulawayo, at a Bulawayo hotel on November 11.
Phiri, who is a producer, director, writer and arts entrepreneur, said the glamorous star-studded launch will coincide with the launch of 11 albums.
Guests will be entertained by Hwabaraty, Sandra Ndebele, ASAPH, Msiz Kay, Kontrol Tribe, Umdumo Wesizwe, Mzoe 7, T1nda, Ashleigh Love, DeLukes, and Khuliyo.
“Their various live performances will be stylistically backed by one band, which is The Outfit Band, to create a unique live entertainment experience,” Phiri said.
He added that the show, which will be hosted by Nceku and Miss T, will kick off at 6:30pm with a red carpet reception where fashionistas, celebrities, socialites and corporate bosses will show off their style.
Phiri, who runs Sabela Music Projects, is the man behind the successful Bulawayo Arts Awards.
Mhle Nzima, one of the event organisers, told NewsDay that on top of these 11 albums, each of the artistes will also launch music videos that will be viewed on a screen set up around the venue for the historic night.
“The main show will then kick off at 7:00pm in a dinner table setting in the President’s Conference Room, with a multi-course meal being served to VVIP guests,” he said.
