Bulawayo City Council has banned Jah Prayzah, Winky D and Alick Macheso from performing at Amphitheatre with immediate effect after complaints of noise by residents who live close to the venue.
A source who spoke to Sunday News said:
We have banned all-night musical shows from the venue. Artistes can book the venue for afternoon performances up to 10pm. But Jah Prayzah, Alick Macheso and Winky D have been completely banned from holding shows at the venue. They can come and look for other places to perform in the city but not at the Amphitheatre. Residents who live close to the venue have raised concerns on the amount of noise when the three artistes perform and we just have to give them an ear too. We want the money but at times it’s not all about money but also considering the concerns of the neighbourhood.
