SOUTH Africa-based music promotions company Underground Entertainment is on an expansion drive acquiring new offices in central Johannesburg where a studio has been set up.

Underground Entertainment is run by Plumtree-born Phakama Nkomo better known as PKay who is known for promoting local talent through his fast growing stable.

He is also known for inviting Zimbabwean artists to perform in the neighbouring country where musicians that include Alick Macheso, Jah Prayzah and Ndolwane Super Sounds have immensely benefited from him.

In his bid to keep pushing Zimbabwe's talent, PKay said: "We have officially opened our recording studio which will cater for our upcoming artists and even the seasoned.

"We realised that it was important for us to have different departments that deal with arts.

"We recently brought the legendary engineer Jabulani JB Ndlovu to oversee the recording sessions as we seek to revive the original Zimbabwean beats especially in tshibilika/rhumba.

"However, the studio still caters for all genres," PKay told the Daily News.

He further noted that the new offices will also allow for theatre productions, workshops and school programmes among others.

"We have continued promoting musicians, mostly from Zimbabwe, which include the likes of Themba Boyoyo.

"We have promoted youngsters like Insimbi Zezhwane on their first ever live performance, Friendly Brothers — Eze Energy, Godo lo Amzoe, Lupane Bigshows and others.

"We have also brought back Isicathamiya and we are building new audience for it, groups like Inkanyezi Zezulu, Imbizo and Indosakusa have benefitted."

PKay also said he was working on bringing renowned Soul Brothers to Zimbabwe.

"In South Africa we have so far taken Soul Brothers on a revival tour. We are planning a Zimbabwe tour after launching their new latest album at Hillbrow Theater in April."
