Zim dancehall star known as Enzo Ishall has a scheduled tour of Asia in March. Dubbed the '20 STALLION ASIA TOUR', Enzo is to be in India on the 6th of March, Beijing 13th, Hangzhou 14th, Kuala Lumpur 20th and Singapore 21st.
Stunner, Hillzy and others are expected to grace Asia along with Enzo Ishall. The tour is organised by Teemak Promotions and STYLLZ. Teemak recently signed Enzo Ishall under their management .
This could have been so welcome by the Zim-Asia community had it come any other time but the chosen dates. Asia has been starved of home entertainment for long. Last year 2019, Enzo Ishall was scheduled to perform in China and he cancelled the show twice after some passport issue.
The question is, will this show hold especially the Hangzhou and Beijing Tour?
China is battling the deadly corona virus and a number of cities have been put under lock down. Public gatherings have been prohibited and clubs ordered to close. There is a statement in Beijing which say '3 is a crowd' meaning even for three people to sit together, it's a crowd. People have to maintain a one-metre apart gap. Looking at the dates of the shows, will the deadly virus be over by then. It's only a month away.
As of 11 February 2020, the virus has killed more than 1 012 people and 42 365 confirmed infected. Flights have been cut and transportation with mainland China so limited. Singapore issued a statement saying that people traveling or who have been to mainland China might be denied entry into Singapore.
Lastly, people are in fear mode. Talking to most Zimbabweans about the show, they all agreed the timing is wrong. Enzo is a well celebrated star and many people would love to see him, but at the moment, gatherings are a risk which only a few are willing to take. However, people remain hopeful for miracles happen everyday.
