Sunshine City Festival: Winky D, Jah Prayzah ignites Harare for Easter Weekend!

Spread This News

By Darlington Gatsi

FIREWORKS are expected this weekend as the capital city comes to life with the Sunshine City Festival pitting musical giants Winky D and Jah Prayzah during the Easter holiday.

Winky D and Jah Prayzah will collide at the festival at Old Hararians starting Friday.

The duo will lead an array of artists at the inaugural two-day festival.

Excitement has gripped Harare with both phases of ticket sales having been sold out, underlining the festival’s importance.

Friday, Jah Prayzah will be complemented by Exq, Selmor Mtukudzi, Mokoomba, Jah Signal, and Chilspot opening the festival.

On Saturday, Zimdancehall heavyweight Winky D will lead fellow genre artists Killer T, Bazooker Master H and Bling 4.

Event organiser Nigel Chinovhiringa said the idea was born out of a desire to celebrate Harare’s musical giants.

“We decided to host the Sunshine City Festival mainly to celebrate Harare. As I have always said, we do not celebrate Harare enough. We decided that for it to be big we need the biggest acts in Zimbabwe hence we engaged Jah Prayzah and Winky D.

“We wanted to fuse so that everyone in Harare can see that they have an act they can look forward to when they come to the festival,” said Chinovhiringa.

Winky D and Jah Prayzah will share the stage for the first time in Harare since 2022 when they performed at the Redefined concert at HICC.

By Tinei Tuhwe

A 23-year old Mozambican will spend the next 16 years in a Zimbabwean prison following his conviction and sentencing for raping a minor.

According to the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA), the convict, whose name was not given, was convicted by a Chipinge magistrate after a full trial.

Prosecutors proved that the rape took place on March 12 this year.

The complainant, aged 13, was on her way from their homestead to a nearby business center in Chipinge.

“He grabbed her by the shoulders and dragged her to a nearby bush where he threatened her with a knife before raping her,” said the NPA in a statement.

The court heard the victim screamed for help and was heard by a passerby who rushed to the scene and rescued her while the suspect grabbed his clothes and took to his heels.

The matter was reported to the police leading to the arrest of the perpetrator.

Nigeria recalls ‘toxic’ children’s cough syrup

Spread This News


NIGERIA’S drug regulator has recalled a batch of Johnson & Johnson children’s cough syrup after tests showed it contained “an unacceptable high level” of a toxic and potentially fatal substance.

The substance, Diethylene glycol, “was found to cause acute oral toxicity in laboratory animals”, Nigeria’s National Agency for Food and Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC) said on Wednesday

It added that human consumption of the Diethylene glycol results in toxic effects, including abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhoea, inability to pass urine, headache, altered mental state, and acute kidney injury which may lead to death.

The substance has been linked to the recent deaths of dozens of children in Cameroon and The Gambia.

Laboratory tests on the recalled Benylin Paediatric syrup also showed that it caused “acute oral toxicity in laboratory animals”, the regulator added.

Neither Johnson & Johnson nor Kenvue – which owns the Benylin brand after becoming independent from Johnson & Johnson last year- have commented on the NAFDAC’s statement.

The syrup was manufactured in South Africa in May 2021 and had an expiry date of April 2024.

The syrup’s packaging says it can be used for relieving cough and congestive symptoms and for treating fever and other allergic conditions among children aged between two and 12 years.
