JEYS Marabini has expressed his delight at the prospect of sharing the stage with South African songbird Zahara, with the marabi maestro set to embark on a highly anticipated tour alongside Ma9nine, and Agga Nyabinde in the United Kingdom.
The tour will take place in various cities in the UK between the end of this year and the start of 2024. With preparations well underway, Marabini, real name Majahawodwa Ndlovu, expressed his delight at the opportunity to perform alongside such talented artists. I am thrilled to be part of this incredible lineup. It’s an honour to share the stage with Zahara, Ma9nine, and Agga Nyabinde. We have been working hard to ensure that our performances are nothing short of spectacular. We are going there with full force, with everything we have in order for us to impress. The band is ready already,” he said.
The event is being sponsored by Nyayai Events, a Zimbabwean promoter based in the UK. Marabini expressed his gratitude for the opportunity provided by the events company, emphasizing the significance of this collaboration.
“I am truly grateful to Nyayai Events for sponsoring this tour. I’m thankful for them having trust in my brand. Their support means a lot to me as an artist. It’s not often that we get such opportunities, so we are determined to make the most of it. This is the first ever time when a UK based promoter invites someone from Matabeleland. I like it because this time they chose something different.”
While the exact venues and dates for the tour are yet to be confirmed, Marabini encouraged fans to mark their calendars and come out in large numbers. “I had to choose an artist from Bulawayo to go with and I went for Ma9nine as he is doing well in the music industry, he is unique. I want to give him a chance to explore, and he will connect well with the audience as he is still young and vibrant, he will resonate well with the audience,” added Marabini.
