More Empty Seats Than Audience At Sebastian Magacha Album Launch

Award winning gospel musician Sebastian Magacha had a rude awakening last night at his album launch ceremony which took place in the capital.

Magacha was launching his album I Am Favoured supported by Mambo Dhuterere, Zimpraise, Mudiwa Hood, Tinashe Magacha, Mathias Mhere and Dorcas Moyo.

However, Magacha’s choice of venue came back to haunt him as it emerged that he is no longer as big a star as he used to be a couple of years ago.

Magacha chose the giagantic Harare International Conference Centre and it proved a Himalaya task for him to fill the 4500 seater facility. Pictures circulating online depict the upper compartment of the auditorium – the cheapest ticket section which is usually packed during events of similar nature – nearly empty.

Social media users believe that Magacha was overly ambitious to hire such an auditorium.

His ambitions were too big for him , he could have find another venue just like what Mathias mhere did at his album launch .kupera apera zvake , he is nolonger Saba wataiziva otherwise dzingori nharo. Inviting other artist to perform was a gap rekut vanhu vauyewo vakawanda

Also on iHarare,  A brave man identified as Aita Joel has sparked debate on social media after he announced that he received vasectomy five children later.

According to Mayo Clinic, vasectomy is a form of male birth control that cuts the supply of sperm to semen. It’s done by cutting and sealing the tubes that carry sperm.

Mayo Clinic further states that, “almost all vasectomies can be reversed, however, this doesn’t guarantee success in conceiving a child. Vasectomy reversal can be attempted even if several years have passed since the original vasectomy — but the longer it has been, the less likely it is that the reversal will work.”

It is against this background that Twitter users, mostly men, are afraid Joel will regret the decision.
