‘Bidding farewell in a Zagaze style’

KELVIN KACHINGWE – Lusaka
HE invited only 80 guests to his wedding, and ensured that all of them went back with an event to remember.
The guest included a former head of state, a former minister of finance and secretary to the treasury, a former diplomat and a number of chief executives.
The venue was Fallsway Lodge where a manager told this writer that each seat cost K350.00, translating into K28,000.00  for 80 guests.
That was how Petersen Zagaze, born Mukubesa Mundia, had chosen to draw curtains on his years as a bachelor.
The wedding reception was as unique as his brand of music which he has courageously penned over the years under various titles including Bufi, Anyandule, Job 13:13, Letter to the President, Umoyo O Toping’a, Makwebo, and Fwaka.
Rosemary Msisha (or Lady Rozay when singing), an employee of Stanbic Bank, must be a lucky woman getting married to a man described by former President Rupiah Banda as “highly talented, highly polite, and highly Zambian”.
What a compliment to this artiste who still prides himself on the humility of still being “that Sefula Boy” despite the complexion of his life having considerably taken a higher profile!
The former President, who was seated together with his former finance minister Situmbeko Musokotwane and former ambassador to Japan Joe Mwale, told the audience that he and his wife Thandiwe were fans of Petersen’s music.
“My wife would have loved to be here, but she is in South Africa receiving treatment. She would not have forgiven me if I had not come to this wedding,” he told his fellow guests.
It was indeed an evening to remember, spiced up by a lovely master of ceremonies Aubrey Luo who kept his audience laughing with his endless jokes.
Luo’s magic was further helped by the music performed by CQ, Shyman Shaizo, Kant2, Franciar and Abel Chungu whose voice simply stole the limelight.
Bidding farewell in a Zagaze style; one leg ina de water, anada leg ina de fire! Zaga life!
