Itinerary for the Zimbabwe tour

Brian Nhira used to visit his home country with his parents. He thinks his solo trips will help him to connect with fans.
“I usually go back with my parents. But now I have the opportunity with my increased platform to do my own thing in Zimbabwe. It’s a blessing. I used to view it as a mission trip but now it’s evolved for us and now it’s also a market for us. There are people there who enjoy the music and I felt like I was doing them an injustice if I was just looking at them like they were my mission. But they’re people who enjoy the music and that’s given me the opportunity to have an influence on not just a two to three-week impact but through social media, we have a lasting impact on the nation. We strategize for Zimbabwe. Everybody goes on iTunes and different digital platforms. I’ve just been opened up through this process. The world is a big place.”
