Afro-fusion music sensation Mbeu, real name Ashton Nyahora, has told Nhau Arts that he misses performing for his home fans.
It is now one month shy of a year since Mbeu last serenaded Norton fans with his regular live set at Pakare Paye Arts Centre. Throughout the year, the Mhodzi Tribe frontman could only share his stage work with music lovers through online shows.
Speaking to Nhau Arts, Mbeu said would give anything for a show in front of his ever-supportive Norton fanbase.
“I last performed at Pakare Paye in March when I hosted Killer-T. The show was fully packed,” he said.
“I really miss the regulars who would turn up at every show in support of my art. Norton is my home, I really wish for another dance with them.”
The Mhondi Yenguva hit-maker hopes to work with other Norton artists once lockdown regulations are relaxed.
“When the lockdown restrictions are relaxed, I look forward to working with my brothers and sisters in music from Norton,” he said.
“A number of emerging artists are really doing well – among them Micky Dem, a young reggae and dancehall artist. I plan on working with them on my live shows.”
Meanwhile, Mbeu will this year release his fourth studio album, The Mhodzi Diaries 2.
“I will also be releasing three local collaborations recorded in 2020,” he said.
He urged people to follow developments on new releases on his social media platforms including his Facebook page, Mbeu and The Mhodzi Tribe Band. Nhau/Indaba
