He has also praised the Zambia National Soccer team for winning the MTN 2012 Africa Cup of Nation trophy and promised that he will dedicate one of his shows to the Chipolopolo boys.
The Congolese sensational musician is in the country to perform at the 86th Zambia Agricultural and Commercial show which is being held under the theme, “Building in today’s prosperity”.
The show opens its gates to the public today August 2nd to August 6th, 2012.
He has since called on all show-goers ton brace for more music as he samples from his latest album entitled “Power” describing Zambia as his second home.
Meanwhile, Show Society Sub-arena Chairperson Jembu Chilonga said all is set for this year’s show and urged show goers not to worry in terms of security.
Mr. Chilonga said the Show Society Organising Committee in conjunction with the Ministry of Home Affairs, has deployed police officers and other law enforcement officers to keep vigil on properties and people that would be reported missing during the show period.
President Michael Sata has invited his Zimbabwean counterpart Robert Mugabe to grace this year’s show on Saturday.
