The Afro fusion artist, Andy Muridzo was in Zaka over the weekend where he got an opportunity to sample tracks from his upcoming album which is going to be released in April.
Muridzo is joining a group of bad boys who are always late for shows as he disappointed his fans when he arrived at Joy Centre late much to the disappointment of people who had been waiting for his act. He was rather lucky that it was not in Banket where he ran for dear life as fans bayed for his blood- for arriving late again.
