There is no billboards advertising a show even by man of the moment Winky D and the popular entertainment hubs in the capital are dry.
Some of the managers who spoke to H-Metro said they have not planned it but are working on their timetables and it is just a coincidence.
“We are not even aware of other artistes’ schedules but we have other fans out there and we decided to do something for them,” said Sulu’s publicist Joe Local Nyamungoma.
“We are touring Mashonaland West this holiday and next year it will be another province.
“The tour begins at TP Rukawo in Chegutu on the Christmas Day, Off Road Nite Club Chirundu on Saturday and Karoi, As You Like It on Sunday,” said Local.
