IF you are one with a nostalgic penchant for Oliver "Tuku" Mtukudzi's golden oldies, then Montclair Hotel and Casino is the place for you to be next Saturday, March 3. The Nyanga-situated resort facility, as has become its norm to treat its patrons to prestigious and memorable occasions, has set up and will host the date between arguably Zimbabwe's most decorated musician and his fans in and around Mutare.
On this night, Tuku, as he is delightfully referred to by his adoring fans, will tap into the reservoir of his yesteryear classics. His 70s and 80s hits will dominate the night's playlist as he serenades his followers.
Montclair Hotel and Casino have urged Tuku's fans and their clients to come in their numbers and enjoy a night of pure bliss.
"As is our norm at Montclair Hotel and Casino, we always strive to give our customers something special and this time it's a chance to witness the superstar himself. Oliver Mtukudzi live in concert, performing his 70s and 80s hits on March 3.
"For only $85, patrons get to sit back and relax while enjoying Tuku's performance away from the hassle and bustle of city life, as well as overnight accommodation for two people. Breakfast is not covered under this package.
"We are, therefore, urging our clients to note this special event in their diary and set the weekend aside so that they won't miss out on this once in a lifetime experience, where they might even get a chance to have a one-on-one chat with him," said the resort giant in a statement.
With his silky voice, Oliver "Tuku" Mtukudzi has become the most recognized voice to emerge from Zimbabwe and onto the international scene, earning a devoted following across Africa and beyond.
With over 50 albums under his belt, he first recorded in the 1970s with a band called Wagon Wheels before forming The Black Spirits. His career spans over several decades.
Some of his yesteryear hits include Hwema Handirase, Zvauya Sei?, Sugar Pie, Gona, Madzongonyedze, Dzandimomotera, Nyanga Ye Nzou and many more.
Meanwhile, there will also be a pleasant treat for avid golfers when a tournament, 9 over 9, roars to life on the morning of March 3 at Claremont Golf Club. It starts at 10 a.m.
Green fees are $10 and Caddie fees are to be paid directly.
