ALL is set for the Zahara show that will be held at Queens Sports Club in Bulawayo with the songstress expected to jet into the country today.
Zahara will hold two shows in Zimbabwe to celebrate the accolades that she won at the South African Music Awards.
South Africa-based DJ Lady Cream - born Nontobeko Dlamini -will perform alongside the sensational musician.
She is originally from Swaziland.
Local artistes such as Otis Ngwabi will get a chance to rub shoulders with the South African songstress.
The other artistes are rhumba outfit Vibe Stars Musica, DJs Keezy and Sweeto among others.
Addressing members of the Press in the city yesterday, director of Hardcore World Entertainment, Chamu Saidi, said Zahara would arrive in Bulawayo on Saturday afternoon.
He said at the after-party where DJ Lady Cream would perform, fans would have the chance to meet Zahara and take photos.
"Lady Cream will perform at the two after-parties and in Bulawayo she will be at Horizon. Zahara will arrive in Bulawayo at 2pm and will have a chance to watch the local talent before her performance," said Saidi.
He said advance tickets for the Bulawayo show would be available tomorrow and on Saturday.
"Everything is set for the show and advance tickets will be available as from Friday at the advertised prices," said Saidi.
He said those in the VIP section would stand a chance to win a night for two at a Victorian Falls hotel.
"We will have a raffle for those in the VIP section who will stand a chance to win a night for two at a hotel in Victoria Falls. There will be full bar and catering on the day," said Saidi.
He said Winky D would perform just before Zahara if all goes well after her show.
"We want to slot Winky D before Zahara because we want to accommodate those young fans so that we do not inconvenience them. If all goes well Winky D will perform after her," said Saidi.
He said Zahara and Winky D would sample new tracks from their upcoming albums at the show.
"Both artistes will sample songs from the albums that they are working on.
Zahara will go on to play songs from her award-winning album," said Saidi.
He said a number of upcoming Bulawayo artistes would be given slots to perform at the show.
"There are first timers who we have encouraged to come to the venue and we will arrange what time to slot them. We are going to give them three to five minutes to perform," said Saidi.
A mixture of Bulawayo artistes and DJs will be the six supporting acts at the show.
