Why Makhadzi’s Zimbabwe Show Ended In Chaos

According to early reports, fans were incensed by her choice to perform to pre-recorded tracks and hurled missiles as a result. Another rumour that has been spreading is that there was a stampede because the venue was too crowded with people trying to record the singer on their phones.

On what occurred in Mutare, Chimbodza clarified the facts. To start, he apologised to Makhadzi. He disclosed that after fans overpowered their security, barricades were destroyed.

“Well, I would like to put the record straight regarding what happened in Mutare. Firstly, I would like to apologise to Makhadzi and her team for being caught in the fracas,” he said.

While bottles were thrown at the show, they were not aimed at Makhadzi, according to Chipaz.

Fans erupted as they struggled to catch a glimpse of the Murahu hitmaker on stage, smashing through barricades meant to separate the VIPs from the general public. Things became heated when the VIPs began to push back, resulting in bottles being thrown in their direction.

“It’s true that bottles were thrown onto the stage but they were not targeted at Makhadzi as claimed on the social media and other media outlets. When Makhadzi appeared on stage, fans jostled to catch a glimpse of her and broke barricades demarcating the VIP enclosure and ordinary side. This did not go down well with fans in the VIP and the pushing and shoving resulted in bottles being thrown towards the VIP section. It obviously appeared as they were targeting Makhadzi but the few minutes she performed, people were very happy,” Chipaz said.

Partson “Chipaz” Chimbodza also begged fans to desist from violent behaviour during live shows.
