Headlines Tuku is coming to Zamfest!

Zambeef’s Zamfest festival goers are assured of a great line up of music and entertainment as iconic African musician Oliver Mtukudzi joins several happening artists on stage come 8th April, 2017.

The Zimbabwean star, affectionately known as Tuku to his fans, has risen to become one of the continent’s most inspirational artists with songs that resonate with the ordinary man. The artist who is popularly known for tracks such as Neria andTodii among others has a unique approach to music which has now come to be known as ‘Tuku music’.

“Oliver’s music is unique and is some of the most original works to come out of Africa and he has inspired a great many artists and people across the continent. And that’s what the whole event is about- inspiring and showcasing the best of Zambia and our heritage; from the team work in the various competitions, to the mingling over food and the launch of the e18hteam DVD and so on,” said Zambeef Joint Chief Executive Officer, Dr Carl Irwin.

Tuku’s leading act will be backed by the country’s hottest music artists, including Pompi, Wills, Cactus Agony, Maureen Lilanda and Sebastian Dutch among others. Festival goers can also look forward to plenty of laughs with comedians K-Star and Kapembwa on the ground.

Zamfest also promises the most exciting chefs from across Africa, 50 world class pop-up restaurants, more than 100 international and local types of cuisine to sample, the best of local and international music acts, and a wide selection of local and exotic beverages. Other event day competitions will include a football match, a Best Braai competition and an attempt at breaking a world record, yet to be disclosed.

“There is something for everybody and as for football fans, they can look forward to the face-off between the Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) team and a professional team led by AFCON 2012 star and former National team Captain Christopher Katongo. We are really excited and looking forward to seeing people come in numbers,” said Dr Irwin.

Zambeef will be furthermore be launching the e18hteam DVD chronicling the nation’s love of soccer and captures the passion, excitement and national pride of the Zambian football team, and charts the fortunes of the national Chipolopolo team – from the lows of the 1993 Gabon air crash to the highs of the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) victory.

The e18hteam documentary is the work of producer, Ngosa Chungu and Spanish writer, director and co-producer Juan Rodriguez-Briso towards which Zambeef invested K1.5 million in support.

Zambeef has a long association with football. Its Zamleather division makes the popular Kaleza Z-12 model leather soccer boots, the first to be locally designed and manufactured in Zambia. Zamleather is also home to the Alive & Kicking employment-generation project that manufacturers quality leather soccer balls that carry health messages and are distributed to under-privileged teams nationwide.

  1. We hope he sings some songs to advise pf and lungu to change their ways. Maybe when lungu is drunk and dancing he might just take the advice. I will not be attending as I have already seen him perform at a private session for a wedding of one of my sons.

    • NEZ TAWAKWATA LIFE SANA? THEY ARE NOT TALKING ABOUT PF. THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT ZAMFEST.

      I AM GLAD TO KNOW THAT LEATHER FOOTBALL SHOES AND BALLS ARE NOW PRODUCED IN ZAMBIA WITH COMPLETE ZAMBIAN RAW MATERIAL INCLUDING AIR. THANKS BA ZAMBEEF AND KEEP IT UP.

  2. NEZ you need a therapist everything to you is political.go eat a guava or something.why cant you let music be music

    • True. Actually the one who needs advice is HH. So I hope as Tuku sings HH will change his ways of wanting to sacrifice innocent Zambians for the sake of Statehouse.

    • @3 SMILEY. THAT IS LT JOURNALISM FOR YOU. I DID NOT WANT TO ASK THAT QUESTION MYSLEF BECAUSE SUCH MISTAKES ARE NORMAL TO LT. IN THE FIRST PLACE, THERE ARE SO MANY BLUNDERS EVEN IN THIS LITTLE ARTICLE.

    • Smiley and Peter
      Watch ZNBC and your questions will be answered. Zambeef has been an advert on TV about Zamfest and the venue.

  3. I think Tuku is a “Tired” performer in Zambia. There are so many artists that you can bring for a change lets be dynamic invite some North African Artist to do the Kora for example …. it appears we are limited with the kind of artists we invite to perform in Zambia 🙁

  4. Is the article telling “us” about the festival, OR the author (LT) are doing a PR for Zambeef? Shouldn’t the author have/had informed the reader (us) about when this fest is (which they have done-great!), where is the exact venue (nothing xx), how much are the ticket/s (nothing), what time is it going to start/end (zero inform). transportation (how does one get to the venue/Google maps/ bus infor/train or tube etc)…
    For those of you that are pure journalists and not from kantemba journalistic college. The first thing you are taught as a journalist is, you are a mouth-piece of information and that you always tell the reader about
    a story as if you are feeding your little baby their first meal… Give us everything!! ba LT!!

  5. @ NEZ , my dear you need urgent psychological help. It appears that you have now hit “ROCK BOTTOM”
