By Shadrack Nyakoe
‘Sukari’ Hitmaker musician Zuchu has revealed that she will still perform in Nigeria despite being involved in an accident that injured her.
Zuchu on a social media post stated that the accident injured her knee just a day before she traveled to Nigeria.
According to her, canceling an important show like the one she has in Nigeria is one of the hardest decisions she has had to make as an artist.
“Nimepata Ajali ndogo iliyo umiza goti langu jana siku moja kabla ya safari yangu kwenda kuperform kwenye show Ya Muhimu kwangu nchini Nigeria. Canceling a show is one of the hardest decisions siwezi as an artist leo ndo nimejua. Nitakwenda hivyohivyo,” Zuchu wrote on social media.
Her manager was however of a different opinion and insisted that she cancels the show.
The concert seeks to bring Africans, the diaspora, and people from across the world together to celebrate a continent home to more than 1.5 billion people and spawn new artistic expression.
