PLANNING boobs and last minute logistical problems marred the inaugural Great Zimbabwe International Festival which was eventually called off.
Although event organisers were yet to furnish the media on new dates, they apologised for the cancellation of the event, which was set to awaken the ancient city of Masvingo from its deep slumber.
“Apologies guys, things didn’t work according to plan. Our team did the best to make sure things happen but that was not to be.
“We will issue a press release soon. Once again, apologies things didn’t work,” said one of the event organisers.
It was supposed to be held under the “Unite, empower, embrace and grow” the Showground Arena.
Top artistes Suluman Chimbetu, Baba Harare, Andy Muridzo, Jah Signal, Dadza D, Baba Harare, Tendai Chimombe, Mannex, Transit Crew, Caroline Chiroodza, Tatenda Nyamajiwa, Loveness Mainato, Droba, Nqobile Malinga Pauline Gundidza, Mbeu and Chiwoneso were set to perform at the event.
Dud poets Albert Nyathi and Chirikure Chirikure were also billed to perform at the two-day fete.
