BEVERLY 'Bev' Sibanda's Foshoro dance has failed to topple Alick Macheso's three-year-old Zora Butter dance as emphatically promised.

The raunchy dancer, who shocked all and sundry after announcing that she was venturing into music and later on released an album titled Tapinda, had promised that her new dance Foshoro would be the dance of the moment outclassing the Zora Butter dance.

Before the release of the album, Bev was optimistic that she would take the industry by storm as she did with her erotic dance moves.

In an interview, her manager Haperz Mapimhidze said the media portrayed the album negatively although according to him it was now doing well.

"Bev is unfazed by what some call a mild response to her music, it is now doing well and her fans love it," said Mapimhidze.

The Zora Butter dance was launched after the release of Macheso's album Zvinoda Kutendwa in 2010.

It has become the signature dance for Dynamos Football Club fans and players when they celebrate goals and wins. Bev featured South African legend Freddy Gwala and former Utakataka Express chanter Shiga Shiga on her debut six track album.

Fireworks were expected from the album but that was not to be. Mapimhidze said Bev was working on taking the album to the people as she has shared the stage with Sulumani Chimbetu, Jah Prayzah and "rebels" Extra KwaZvose who deserted Macheso to form their own band.

Their album was also received mildly on the market and they are yet to make a mark in the cut-throat industry. Mapimhidze said Bev has lined up a number of shows ahead of the festive season and is undeterred by the rather "slow" response from the fans.

He said she would not be quitting her usual dances that catapulted her to fame but would try to balance dance and music.
