One of the most prolific musicians hailing from Zimbabwe, Oliver Mtukudzi, with a career spanning more than 40 years, is a virtuoso in his home country and the African continent.

Keeping with the tradition of celebrating some of Africa’s best musical talents, Capital FM is proud to announce Zimbabwe’s Afropop legend will be headlining the 7th edition of Koroga Festival in Nairobi, Kenya at the Arboretum Gardens on Sunday, 7th of June, 2015.

Mtukudzi’s distinct husky voice, backed by his band The Black Spirits, will be delighting festival-goers with his sweet acoustic guitar rifts and sounds of a mbirai thumb piano.

The Harare-native and music icon first began performing in 1977, and to date, has released 56 albums with his latest “Mukombe Wemvura” in 2014. Generally singing in Shona – Zimbabwe’s dominant language ­ – Mtukudzi also sings in Ndebele and English about the economic and social problems of his country and the African continent.

Known for mixing the sounds of traditional instruments with modern sounds, Mtukudzi’s melodies never leave you cold!

Early bird tickets are currently available on TicketSasa for Sh1,000 until May 24, 2015!

Here’s an example of what you can expect from the soulful African music icon:
