In a rare indoor performance Oliver Mtukudzi will take to the stage at the Blues Room in Village Walk, Sandton, on July 19.
It is dubbed the platinum night and Tuku, as he is affectionately known, will bring along his full band to create a memorable night for music lovers.
Born and bred in Zimbabwe, Tuku spent many years releasing albums but somehow remained unknown in South Africa.
It was not until after his highly publicised collaboration with balladeer Ringo Madlingozi that local music lovers began their musical romance with the awesome guitarist.
Today the gentle giant is a permanent fixture at festivals. He has gathered a huge following of die-hard fans who get down to his high rotation mega hits such as Todii, Wasakara, Hear Me Lord and Kunze Kwadoka.
Tuku mesmerises audiences with his emotive rendition of Neria, the soundtrack from a spiritually moving movie shot in Zimbabwe.
The amiable Tuku has consistently refused to throw in the towel on his country in spite of I the many challenges Zimbabwe is facing.
He is riding the crest with Twende Twende, a collaboration with Kenyan Eric Wainaina.
For a memorable evening with Mtukudzi and his vibrant band, who will take you down memory lane and also introduce you to the best Zimbabwe has to offer, make a date with The Blues Room.
Also see Tuku's son in action as he demonstrates the power of succession.
But above all, enjoy the ambience of networking with peers, sharing a special moment with a loved one or catching up with friends against a backdrop of great music.
Included in this platinum musical night is a sumptuous threecourse meal and complimentary bottle of wine.
Tickets excluding dinner cost R350. Those who want to dine must fork out R750.
You are asked to show up in your exquisite glad rags.
