By ZBC Reporter

Bulawayo based Afro-fusion duo; Soul Dudes has become the latest music outfit to take advantage of opportunities offered online to reach a broader audience.

The duo of Mbongeni Nxumalo and Aaron Chikondawanga who have been performing dance videos using songs by international artists are riding on a wave of success with some of their videos having gone viral on various online platforms and propelling them to stardom.

“We came up with an initiative to do online video dance covers, and they went viral. After the response we got for our first dance cover video, we then did another one for Jah Prayzah, and this has allowed us more exposure as a group which is starting to grow in the city of Kings, Bulawayo.”

Aaron Chikondawanga said the concept of posting online videos has also been instrumental in the growth of their music genre.

“We are now known, our network circle in the arts industry has grown because of the dance covers.”

Soul Dudes is set to join other Bulawayo artistes including Qeqeshiwe Mntambo and DJ Prince Eskhosini, for a virtual concert set for this weekend.
