The two artistes will headline the annual Nust graduation bash which will also feature Garry B, Templeman, Bulawayo’s female DJ Liz, Fire and United Kingdom-based King Alfred.
Stunner will perform songs from his latest album, If I Die Tonight, while Sulu will sample songs from his forthcoming album.
Stunner, a top rated hip-hop star recently who shared the stage with music superstar Oliver Mtukudzi last Saturday at the Castle Lager Biggest Braai, launched his album in August.
Stunner’s album carries tracks including Ndiri Humble, Inna Mi Head featuring Jamaican Sir Ford, Impilo Yethu featuring Albert Nyathi and Hatirevi Nyambo featuring Jah Prayzah.
Sulumani, who is set to launch his forthcoming album anytime soon, will also take the opportunity to sample new tracks from his yet-to-be-titled album.
“This is the first time coming to Bulawayo after I launched my latest album in Harare. If I Die Tonight is coming to Bulawayo for the first time. It’s a privilege to share the new music with my Bulawayo people, we promise nothing, but a killer show,” Stunner said.
Sulu’s publicist, Joe Local, echoed the same sentiments with Stunner.
“This is going to be a good show. Fans should expect new music from us. We will sample new stuff from our forthcoming album for the first time in Bulawayo. Everyone knows what we do, we don’t disappoint and we will not disappoint the students on their last day at varsity. A top drawer performance is what we promise and will deliver,” Joe Local said.
Show organiser, Samuel Saungwemi, confirmed that all was in place for the big day.
“All is in order now and this is going to be a big day for music lovers and especially the graduands. This is their last dance as university students and we will do it in style. All the artists have confirmed their participation, we will have everything for everyone from hip-hop, house, dancehall and sungura,” Saungwemi said.
