A dark cloud engulfed Insimbi ZeZhwane musical outfit as they were involved in a horrific accident which claimed the lives of co-founder of the group Elivis "Ma Eli" Mathe and drummer Thembinkosi "Maviri" Mpofu.

After the heart-rending accident many thought the sun had set for the musical outfit as they believed MaEli who was the lead vocalist had passed on with the life of the group.

They had all the reason to think so because MaEli was a lead vocalist, lead guitarist and could dance much to the satisfaction of the show attendees.

They had to think so because they had rarely seen Meluleki "Brema" Moyo featuring much as a lead vocalist let alone much as a lead guitarist.

However, Brema and his group members who had not yet fully recovered from a tragic accident stood the test of time as they put up a well-polished show that left memories etched on the minds of the music lovers. The show was held at a packed Palace Hotel.

Brema, the front man for Insimbi ZeZhwane, paid tribute to Palace Hotel proprietor Gandiwa for successfully hosting them at his hotel.

"Our last show at Palace was a massive one. We were coming from the hospital after the accident. Things were really bad for us and bills were mounting but after the show we managed to settle all the bills. As such we would like to thank Gandiwa and his team for successfully hosting us," said Brema as he is affectionately known in music circles.

Brema said they would soon hold another show at Palace Hotel.

"We really love the place and we feel at home as we are greatly appreciated. Soon before the end of December we will be having another show at the hotel," he said.

Jeys Maribini as he is popularly known in music circles paid tribute to Gandiwa for his kind gesture.

"Some of the night spots prefer giving South African musicians a platform to perform but Gandiwa and his team that include Jaiva have given local musicians a chance and made them believe that they can attract big numbers. We would like to thank him for that as his kind gesture is working wonders in the music landscape particularly in Bulawayo," he said.
