Vuyo Brown, based on the gospel artist in BULAWAYO, will perform the second edition of the Virtual Music in Africa Concert on Friday.
The first edition of the event was held on October 30 with the songbird and mbira player, Hope Masike serving the audience.
The local musical artist exhibition that started in October is hosted by local entertainment promoter Rooftop Promotions.
Music In Africa will be broadcast live on Theater on the Park’s Facebook and YouTube pages and has limited seating for a live audience.
The real name Vuyo Brown, Vuyolwethu Ngwenya, who is part of the star-studded series, said she is ecstatic about the stage.
Earlier this year, she topped the charts with her latest track Thula Wazi.
“For me, it’s just amazing and I feel very excited and honored that I was considered in this program,” she said.
Afro-fusion music star Mbeu will close the event with a performance supported by the orchestra Mhodzi tribe.
In a statement from the Rooftop Promotions Communications Officer, Passmore Ndlovu said the concert was aimed at alleviating the challenges facing artists from the Covid-19 pandemic.
Artists nationwide have been hit hard by the Covid-19 threatening their livelihood.
Physical performances to promote their work were banned and in some cases restricted to a smaller audience, while album sales were affected by piracy.
“The Harare-based art center is part of the African institutions that the Music In Africa Foundation is collaborating on in the implementation of this digital showcase for musical artists in Africa.
“This program is designed to add steam to global musical careers and respond positively to the effects of the global Covid-19 pandemic on musicians,” Ndlovu said.
