WITH the Harare Agricultural Show already in full swing, merrymakers eagerly await the last day of this fete.
Thousands of people are expected to converge in the capital in search of the most happening gig.
Traditionally, the last day of the show is characterised by an array of exciting events that take place in and around the capital.
This time around, there might not be many major events that have been organised but there certainly will be no shortage of merrymaking with two exciting gigs taking centre stage this Saturday.
While some of the country’s heavyweights will be battling it out at Alex Sports Club, which plays host to the Clash of Giants, Pakare Paye Arts Centre in Norton will be drowning with regional melodies during the Solo Festival.
Having Alick Macheso, Jah Prayzah, Killer T, Suluman Chimbetu, Kinnah and Seh Calaz on the same stage is something in the territory of rarity.
The Clash of Giants is just a time bomb waiting to explode as it presents the perfect opportunity for fans to put to bed the argument of who the man-of-the-moment is when it comes to live performances.
Besides the mainstream heavyweights on the line-up, the likes of Takura, Tammy, Judgement Yard and Selekta Base, to name a few, will also be out to prove their worth on the local entertainment’s hierarchy.
Just a few kilometres from the capital, Pakare Paye will be the place to be for those who enjoy soulful music with South African superstars Zahara and Berita headlining the 2018 Solo Fest.
Besides the international acts, several local artistes including Pro-Beats, Silent Nqo, Norman Masamba, Mangoma, Mbeu and Donald Kanyuchi will also light up the stage.
While people are used to seeing artistes performing with bands, this will be an interesting show where they will showcase their skills without any backing.
Of late, merrymakers have shown a hunger for partying and these two events will the perfect outlets to satisfy various tastes.
