Dai vakapa baba sharo mari yese iyo na mark ngwazi 1 week 24/7 pungwe magitare achitsva
Then local artist where given 100 dollars
And a different camp was more worried about how far the amount could have gone had it been channelled towards the country’s crippled health system.
Imagine what $175,000 could have done for our ailing health system 💔💔💔💔.
Chiiko, kushaya hanya here, hutsinye here? Is it stupidity??? 🤔
Meanwhile, Ross shut down Zimbabwe and left fans in awe with his electric performance.
Ross — born William Leonard Roberts II — staged his maiden performance in Zimbabwe courtesy of global media and entertainment company, ROAR Entertainment.
Die-hard Hip Hop fans were in for a treat at the Harare International Conference Center (HICC) as Rick Ross delivered a world-class performance.
Judging from the concert videos which have since gone viral, Rick Ross wowed the crowd and left them wanting more.
In one of the videos shared on social media, the crowd can be seen and heard vibing to his performance. The crowd had their phones out recording each and every song performance.
Meanwhile, in what some found to be a humiliating development, Wicknell Chivayo’s car which was supposed to ferry Ross from Robert Mugabe International Airport burst a tyre before even taking off yesterday.
An eyewitness told iHarare that the moment Ross entered into the vehicle it burst its front left tyre. Ross had to be whisked into a blue Merc whose owner could not be ascertained.
