Zimbabwe’s music superstar Oliver Mtukudzi and comedian Annie Kansiime of Uganda are among the international artistes expected to spice up this year’s Zambia International Trade Fair (ZITF).
Also at the international fair will be another Ugandan comedian Teacher Mpamire and dancehall queen from Ghana, Kaakie.
Local musicians like Chester, Dandy Krazy, Danny, Mampi, Mozegater and the Amayenge have been lined up to also provide entertainment in the main arena.
ZITF marketing manager Moses Chitoshi said an explosive entertainment roster has been packaged to give show goers a memorable outing.
“The ZITF has put up a very good package for entertainment this year,” Chitoshi said of the fair which opens its gates to the public on Wednesday (June 29).
He said Mtukudzi and Kansiime will, apart from putting up performances in the main arena, also have shows at the Curious Bar at Mukuba Hotel.
Kansiime and Mtukudzi will have their respective shows on July 3 (Sunday) and July 4 (Monday) with the Ghanaian dancehall artiste Kaakie having a performance on Saturday.
During the guest artiste shows, Kasaka and Mwene Mushi, Peter Mvumbi, Topsy and Shike will make up the Zambian comedian nights show which are scheduled from Saturday until Monday.
Chitoshi said the other local musicians to play at the fair are Chef 187, Macky 2 and Jay Rox, with gospel singers Kings Malembe, Ephraim and Suwilanji also having a share of a slot in the main arena.
The international trade fair starts on June 29 and ends on July 5.
