The festival has in recent years expanded to neighboring countries and is set to launch in Botswana, Malawi and Zambia where the Chibuku brand is also available.
The competition is a collaborative effort between Delta Beverages and the National Arts Council of Zimbabwe with the view to identify and promote excellent musical talent.
