Harare | An attempt by Talkchart creator Tempter Tungwarara and Zanu PF candidate for parliament Scott Sakupwanya to bring American rapper Dababy to Zimbabwe has failed.
The highly anticipated Dababy concert, which was originally scheduled for November 17th, 2023, was cancelled, according to a recent statement from Sakupwanya’s Roar Entertainment.
The organiser disclosed that the decision was made based on pre-event surveys that predicted a low turnout.
“One of Zimbabwe’s leading entertainment companies, Roar Entertainment, regrets to announce the cancellation of the highly anticipated Dababy concert, which was originally scheduled to take place on November 17th, 2023,” the statement stated.
Right now, Zimbabwe’s market isn’t prepared to welcome an internationally recognised performer of this kind. Our research revealed a few issues that could have jeopardised the event’s overall success.
Despite the setback, Roar Entertainment expressed its commitment to providing unforgettable experiences for the Zimbabwean audience and introducing them to renowned artists from around the world.
“Our aim at Roar Entertainment has always been to offer the Zimbabwean audience unforgettable experiences and to introduce them to renowned artists from around the world. We firmly believe that diversity and exposure are essential in nurturing the local entertainment scene.
Despite this setback, Roar Entertainment will continue to strive for excellence in delivering one-of-a-kind events that are truly memorable. We appreciate the ongoing support from our fans, sponsors, and stakeholders, and we remain resolute in our dedication to bringing world-class entertainment to Zimbabwe.”
The canceled show, named the Talkchart Dababy Show, was intended as Sakupwanya’s initiative to introduce Tungwarara to the music scene. Meanwhile, Tungwarara is set to launch Talkchart on November 16th.
Talkchart, touted as the first Zimbabwean-owned chat application, enables people to connect seamlessly from any part of the world, operating in a manner similar to WhatsApp.
