South Africa: King of Sungura Alick Macheso proved to be a legend in the neighbouring South Africa after packing venues for his weekend shows in Johannesburg.

The shows were being sponsored by Chicco Farooq (CF) supported by Boss Yamboko (Willard Katsande).

Speaking to this publication from South Africa CF director Wellington “Chicco” Chikoore said the brand Macheso is big even outside Zimbabwe.

“We are very grateful to have scores of people coming to our Mzansi shows Macheso proved to be people’s favourite hence Orchestra Mberikwazvo iband revanhu,” Chicco said.

“Macheso loves his fans and he is time conscious he makes sure that people enjoy every moment with him unlike other big artistes who just give fans little time on stage.”

Radio Presenter Phatisani Sibanda was the Master of Ceremony on all the shows.

Chicco also extended his condolences to Macheso’s dancer and vocalist Selemani “Majuice” Mpochi who lost his wife Layota Guveya while in SA.

“I would like to pass my condolences to Majuice his family and all the fans may her soul rest in peace,” Chicco added.

“As soon as we heard the news we made arrangements so that Majuice goes back to Zimbabwe to mourn his wife, and as soon as we get in Zimbabwe we are going to pay our condolences as CF entertainment as per our tradition.”

CF entertainment promised to continue organizing big shows for Orchestra Mberikwazvo.
