THE potentially-explosive maiden Checheche’s Got Talent show is set to roar to life tomorrow (Saturday) at New Checheche Complex in the Lowveld.
The event, which will be the first of its kind in Checheche, is expected to popularise Ndau people’s culture to the world.
It will see youths from different genres and languages performing in the singing, dancing, poetry and modelling categories.
Sponsored by Member of National Assembly-elect for Chipinge South Enock Porusingazi, the show will see hundreds of youths battle for the title of Checheche best singer, model, dancer and poet.
Winning contestants will walk away with various cash prizes.
In an interview, organiser of the event, Blessed Kudzanai Mabika (22) well known as Quque, said their aim was to have Checheche residents join the rest of the country in celebrating the taste and sound of Zimbabwean music, by showcasing their talents.
She said because music is a major element that creates and defines a people’s culture, they saw it imperative that they organise a show that would bring together people from Checheche and celebrate, as well as launch the to-be annual event.
“The show will help in marketing our Checheche youths to the world, as well as advancing our unique culture. We have a lot of talented youths in Checheche but no one knows of their existence because of lack of sponsorship and a clear market in the area. The show will pave way for these young children’s brighter future.
“It is our hope that after the show, a lot of youths will realise their talents and participate in the next show. Hopefully we will host this show annually in December,” said Mabika.
The show is the brain child of four Checheche girls namely, Mabika, Gracious Muzimba (Lady Charm), Tsitsi Munongo (True Plus), and Fadzai Munongo (Faffy).
