The Vintage King Burns the box!

Once a member of Antivirus , Vinnie the King also known as Ricco Andrews has changed the formality of your conventional Album/E.P Launch set up where the events are normally done at Clubs and restaurants.  When asked in an Interview, Vinnie said that he has organised and attended music Launch events at a lot of formal venues but has since realized that people constantly get invitations to a lot of these events but hardly show up. This may be because they just don't have the money to attend or in most cases the events are very much similar and lack diversity. "So in a bid to set a new trend, we have decided that we do the first ever Street Launch for the most Anticipated E.P #BornInternational, the event is set to happen at the City hall benches Opposite Haddon and Sly, The event is set to happen on 7th of October at 5pm. The day will also see the release of his new documentary that digs a little deeper into his journey, who he is and his vision as a artist. Be sure not to miss this event. Free Entry, come one come all!

INTWASA festival - Music Competion

Friday the 1st of October was a Glorious day for Bulawayo to begin the month at the City Hall.

The Music Competition sponsored by Ingwebu Royal was heating up, as it was the day of the FINALS.

With the Intwasa Festival reaching it's climax, more than 20 artists took to the Big Stage to perform.

Some were free entertainers like Khoi Khoi, Larynx, Senko and Rags_2_Swag among others, but only 10 were competing for a spot in the Top 2.

 

The Top 10 comprised of artists/groups like Curtis, M.U.S.E, Shirati Drums, Sir Palmer, & Zimbo Music just to name a few.

The Show was intense, as each contestant came with different styles, props, gimmicks and tactics to impress the judges and win their favor.

M.U.S.E took his performance to the next level and he jumped on stage with a very beautiful lady and serenade her much to the delight of the crowd. 

Others performers came with their fans and this really boosted their performance as this made their act lively & loud.

Some acts went wild and used every inch of the stage to their advantage with a couple of stunts, insane dance moves and backflips. (Sir Palmer)

Others came with their own LIVE bands complete with Dancers and an unrivaled showcase of Energy (Shirati Drums)

Some remained TRUE to their craft, singing PERFECT notes without any pre-recorded vocals(Zie) 

 

But among all the Contestants, only 2 managed to outshine the rest.

Coming in at number 2 was Zimbo Music, a group comprising of multi talented musicians hailing from all over the country.

The Zimbo Music Crew stole the Show with their performance of "Party like a Zimbo", were they brought out their own secret weapon in the form of SleekStar, who had traveled all the way from Zvishavane but he hails from Hwange.

Their co-ordination was near perfect both in Instrumentals, vocal delivery and movements on stage.

 

However, Zimbo Music Crew's attempt to take the crown was over-shadowed by another group going by the name "Shirati Drums".

So what made the Shirati Drums Crew be Number 1 in the Show? It was a combination of things.

It was their skilled use of Live Traditional Drums with Percussion sets, the dance routines they had prepared, and also the very Well-Executed Vocal deliveries, the group was organised and full of zeal towards entertaining the crowd.

 

After the show, we did speak to members of the Shirati Drums & Zimbo Music crews who were both very grateful for the support shown by the audience.

Number 1 and number 2 both walked away with about $200 and $100 each respectively. Other prizes included Publishing and Promotion deals both locally and internationally, plus performances on select-upcoming tours around the country.
