Popularly known as Igcokama Elisha, the maskandi hitmaker told The Zimbabwean he would soon embark on a working visit to Zimbabwe that would also help him see how his fans lived.

“I have enjoyed so much friendship with Zimbabwean maskandi singers and received a lot of support from music fans there,” said the 26-year-old KwaZulu-Natal-born singer.

“I will soon perform in some shows arranged by traditional and cultural leaders in Zimbabwe, where I will be sharing the stage with fellow South African and Zimbabwean artists, includinf Zinjaziyamluma, Mehlokazulu and Uboneni.

“I also hope to visit rural homes of some of my many fans in Zimbabwe to see how they live and give back to the community by sponsoring schoolchildren.”

He’ll also work on setting up fan networks so that he can keep people in touch with his latest news, events and new releases, and give fans chance to feed back.

“I want to allow my fans direct access to me, where they would be free to call me whenever they need to clarify issues or get up-to-date information from me,” he said.
