They are both award winners and command a lot of fans in their respective genres, now they headline what could be the biggest Saturday night in Harare at Shoko Festival.
We are talking none other than South Africa’s AKA and Zimbabwe’s Winky D.
The two will share the stage with top local and international hip hop acts at the 6th edition of Shoko Festival taking place at the Zimbabwe Museum of Human Sciences, Rotten Row.
Zimbabwe hip-hop scene will be well represented on the night by ‘Happy’ hitmaker Tehn Diamond and Simba Tagz ,one of the country’s leading urban musicians and producers who has worked with Ice Prince and Burna Boy amongst others.
Also on the Zimbabwean front, the indie hip-hop outfit, The Monkey Nuts are expected to take to the stage in a collaboration with Norway-based group, African Sunz.
African Sunz are a powerful act with the reputation as one of Oslo’s best live hip hop acts. They will be followed by an upbeat DJ set by the Circuit party DJs.
Merrymakers will cross over to Saturday with a performance from the king of Zimdancehall, WinkyD (presented by Zambezi Magic) who has been dominating the airwaves with his latest single titled Panorwadza Moyo which features Oliver Mtukudzi.
Winky D’s presence at the festival certainly comes with a great promise of a sneak peek into his new song titled 25 that he has been sampling at his live shows.
