The recently organised South African tour scheduled for 27 September has been postponed due to the Xenophobic attacks.

This legacy tour which is to be carried out by Tuku’s daughters, Selmor and Sandra is said to have been held in SA for the past five years with the late Oliver Mtukudzi.

Organisers of the tour, Xtratime Entertainment, and Mukuru.com had to postpone the two gigs for Ekurhuleni Boksburg Hotel in Johannesburg and Mercury live Concert venue in Cape Town for the safety of artists and fans.

Tongai Mbidzo of Xtratime Entertainment said that due to the ongoing xenophobic attacks in SA, it is not safe to proceed with the two gigs because some of the venues for the tour have been affected by the violence.

“One of the well-known venues for Zimbabwean events is owned by a Zimbabwean which becomes risky if we decide to go ahead with the shows because we want to avoid putting lives in danger”, he said.

The show will likely be held in November as the organisers continue to assess the situation to give specific dates for these gigs until the situation subsides.
