He took to the stage at exactly 6pm after performances from Uganda’s best afro-pop musicians, Maurice Kirya, Naava Grey and Milege Band.

Armed with a guitar, dressed in white from shirt to shoes, Mtukudzi jumped onto the stage and started doing what he is best at; playing the guitar.

This was soon followed by his rhythms of others instruments played by his band putting up an ear-soothing atmosphere, a thing that threw the crowd into a frenzy.

“Where I come from, we only sing when we have something to communicate,” said Mtukudzi as he played his guitar amid screams, ululations and clapping from the audience which had stood up by then.

“Music is my food, I can skip a meal, play music and still remain okay,” he added.

The crowd kept clapping at the end of every word he said and this went on and on.

He finally started singing his songs with his appealing voice; captivating guitar rhythms coupling them up with his superb dance thus setting the grounds on fire.

The audience soon started copying his dance moves and within seconds, the audience was dancing the same dance moves.

The dancing starts involving white partiers

This did not leave out even the whites, who contributed almost half of the audience.

They danced, clapped and mumbled the words in the songs to such an extent that one would mistake them for knowing the songs.

“The next song I am going to do is a song I was supposed to record with my son who unfortunately passed away before we could recorded, leaving me to do it alone,” he said as the crowd unlike before, when they would clap at the end of his words, consoled him this time.

He started singing again and soon the audience got back to their feet forgetting about what he had just said.

The musician, who has over 60 studio albums to his name, performed some of his best songs among which included the crowd’s favourite Toodi, a song about the AIDS scourge which was at its peak in Zimbabwe by then.

He finally left the stage a few minutes to 8pm and fans had chance of interacting with him, auctioning his music CDs and signing autographs.

The crowd’s hunger for his songs could not be easily quenched

There was also great entertainment from the pioneer DJs who started playing music as soon as the Zimbabwean, the most successful musician in his country and the African continent, left stage.
