The seventh annual Zambezi Night is taking place tomorrow at the Old Chez Ntemba in Windhoek, featuring a star-studded line-up.

The performers include DJ Siya, Tate Buti, Petersen Zagaze from Zambia, Shanky Briz from Botswana, DJ Vuyo, Zux Masheleng, DJ Lizo and DJ Armani.

Usually, Zambezi Night event only features artists from the Zambezi Region as its primary aim is to celebrate music and culture from that region, however things have been switched up for this year's event. In an interview with tjil, the organiser of the event DJ Siya mentioned that he wants to cater for everyone, emphasising that no one should be left out. “That is why we included artists from other regions and neighbouring countries as well. We do not want to look as if the party is only for people from Zambezi,” he said. DJ Siya added that the event has grown to the extent where they want to take it to other regions as well. “It is known now, so we want to make sure we cover all the regions,” added DJ Siya.

Apart from the inclusion of artists from other regions and countries on the line-up, another new element added to the event is the dance competition where prizes are up for grabs. DJ Siya announced that one of the winners from the competition will be awarded a gym voucher with a personal fitness trainer, compliments of Ronald Nyambe.

On factors considered when drawing up the line-up, DJ Siya said he looked at the type of music the artists are producing just to make sure that attendees will be entertained the whole night. “I want to invite everyone to come and witness how we party back home in the mighty Zambezi Region. Those who can dance are most welcome to join us as it will be a night to remember.

“Since I am nominated at this year's Namibian Annual Music Awards (NAMAs), I have a treat for my fans. On the same night I will release my new single featuring Petersen Zagaze,” shared DJ Siya.

The catch phrase for this year's show is Kabunya, which means 'slowly but surely' and the event is proudly sponsored by RMZ Events.
