MASERU — The Zimbabwean-born DJ behind the popular house remix Pfugama Unamate is set to perform at The Joint tomorrow night.
DJ Qness, whose real name is Qhubani Ndlovu, will be the star attraction at the all-night celebration set to start after the titanic World Cup fixture pitting Brazil against Portugal tomorrow.
The Johannesburg-based DJ will perform alongside locals DJ K, Hally, Kopper and Bootz.
Hally, one of the organisers of the event, said they had decided to bring football and music fans together for one of the biggest matches of the World Cup in South Africa.
The Brazil-Portugal match starts at 2030 hours.
“We are bringing together soccer and music fans under one roof to celebrate with whichever team will make it in this match,” Hally told the Weekender.
“We thought it would be wonderful to bring DJ Qness to our home ground where fans can get an opportunity to celebrate the historic event of the World Cup with him.
“By bringing him here we are also acknowledging the good music that he is making.”
DJ Qness has since popped another chart-topping single, Uzongilinda, which means “you will wait for me” in Zulu.
“I believe Pfugama Unamate best describes who DJ Qness is and the fans also identify him best with this song so we want to have the feel of the song live,” Hally said.
He said the gates will open before the game starts but the DJs will only take the platform after the football action.
, which means “kneel and pray” in Zimbabwe’s main Shona language, has enjoyed massive airplay in South Africa as well as in the region since its release in 2008.
