WHEN Drimz took to the stage last Saturday afternoon at the Kabwe District Agriculture and Commercial Show, it was not
him or his two dancers that stole the limelight; instead, it was a 10-year-old majorette who showed her dancing skills.
Call it Ama Dance Yamu Lolo.
Drimz was impressed with the girl’s performance at the Kifco Recreation Grounds, and for her efforts, the Sault Muli Supi singer gave her a K100, which is not bad for a few minutes work and on a weekend.
Evidently, there is chance of her earning more money as a dancer for Drimz, something he realised and the reason he cautioned the grade three pupil to focus her energies on school.
But she was not the only one to impress with the dancing; another pupil of Kalonga Secondary School also thrilled the gathering with his dancing.
For a moment, the Kabwe mayor Prince Chileshe and the district commissioner Dominic Mulenga had to briefly suspend the tour of the stands to see what was up.
Well, it was Am Dance Yamu Lolo.
Drimz, who later in the evening was in Ndola performing at the premiere of four Copperbelt productions on DStv’s Zambezi Magic at Protea Hotel, gave the show goers a one-hour performance.
He performed songs like Sana, Mpakafye Ubushiku and Ireen Mambilima, which remains on demand.
“I sang Ireen Mambilima as the people requested me to sing this song,” Drimz, who was happy to perform in his home town, said in an interview. “I was happy that I responded to their request.”
Meanwhile, following his performances a fortnight ago at Mindolo Dam in Kitwe and at the launch of The Vibe in Ndola, Danny Kaya last week Friday settled for Sum’s Car Wash in Kabwe where he thrilled his fans at the gig dubbed ‘Ladies Weekend Bash’ which was free for the ladies but not the men who were being charged K30. But there were no complaints from the men, after all, it was Danny and his Mo Fire Band performing.
Before he took the stage, his backing vocalists, Titus and Naso performed a number of covers including those by Lily T, Rihanna, Joyce Nyirongo, Bob Marley and Marc Anthony, a sure sign of their versatility.
And when he took the stage, Danny performed his usual popular songs like Yakumbuyo, Live, Joni and Njelela among others.
“I’m happy to be here. It was a long time since I was here in Kabwe,” he told the ecstatic crowd.
And Mr Perfecto B1 (Bruce Simbwalanga) seems to have found the Southern Province homely as he has been performing there for three consecutive weeks now.
Last week Friday, he was at Blue Ray Nightclub in the tourist capital which was his second stop after Leelove in Choma.
Blue Ray was full by 20:00 hours with ladies having taken most of the seats in readiness for the Sikiliti Ku Bed and Pillow singer’s performance. But it was only later in the night that he came, but it is something they were prepared for.
Good for them, they know how to have a good time.
