Tuku concert received low turnout
The Tuku Memorial Concert received a low turnout after it failed to attract a massive crowd to honor the late music icon.
In a statement, Partson Chimboza of Chipaz Promotions acknowledged that the gig opened their eyes and taught them few lessons. He added that he was open to constructive criticism for the improvement of the music industry.
The promoter also said one of the lessons is the need for good communication between promoters and musicians. Chimboza said there was no clear program of the night’s proceedings. Jah Prayzah and Macheso management was seen wandering backstage, trying to figure out when they were due to perform.
Information gathered revealed that there was a lack of transparency in the manner in which the show organizers have been dealing with artistes. Reports had it that Chipaz Promotions was stingy with information on when and how they were to pay artistes for their performances.
However, although various artists like Mi Casa, Alick Macheso, Jah Prayzah, and Selmor Mtukudzi among others took to the stage. The “wow factor” that many had anticipated was missing.
Most people argued that there was a lack of energy and motivation, leaving some fans booing during the performance. Some argued that there was a need for research on how the foreign artistes perform in their respective countries.
