AFTER a few years in the wilderness, former Bulawayo dance kingpins Anti-virus are ready to make the step up in the world of music under the guardianship of their mentor and manager Arthur Evans.
The group has been on the path to recovery ever since a messy breakup that at one point saw them lose one of their members as they made the difficult transition from a youth dance group to a matured, fully fledged music act.
The crew is now on the comeback trail, with original members Prince Dube, Anthony and Victor Madzura now joined by Stuart a�?SKa�? Kwenda who despite also being a dancer has been roped in primarily to assist the group in its music endeavours.
Another addition has been that of Arthur Evans as the manager, who in the past has made plain his desire to see the group and other city acts push towards stardom.
In an interview, group member Prince Dube said that the group had put pen to paper with Evans last year, as they believed that he was the missing link to push them towards attaining heights in music similar to those that they attained in dance.
a�?After meeting him in 2015, we sat down talked and agreed on the direction that we needed to take as a group.
Seeing how his vision aligned with ours we signed a deal last year,a�? said Dube.
Aside from an upcoming single, he said the group would also be releasing their own signature clothing brand.
