PRESIDENT Emmerson Mnangagwa has given artists the green light to resume live shows on condition that they do not exceed the stipulated number of 50 people.
Handing over musical equipment to Andy Muridzo and Chief Hwenje at State House in Harare this Thursday, President Emmerson Mnangagwa said musicians can now resume live shows provided that they adhere to all Covid-19 protocols.
The Deputy Minister of Youth, Sport, Arts and Recreation, Tino Machakaire welcomed the development and implored artists not to abuse the privilege.
Musicians who were present expressed their gratitude.
Musical shows were halted in March last year in a bid to curtail the spread of covid-19.
The musical kits were donated by Youths, Sport, Arts and Recreation Deputy Minister Tinoda Machakaire as part of a fulfillment of a pledge he had made to them.
Chief Hwenje, born Admire Sanyanga Sibanda is the one who made the popular “ED Pfee” song.
President Mnangagwa commended Deputy Minister Machakaire for living to his promise. The two artists were excited saying they would do justice to the donation by working hard to entertain their fans.
The instruments include a Public Address system, mixers, drum set and guitars.
