South African musician DJ Tira is reportedly stranded in Zimbabwe after losing his passport.
He had travelled to Zimbabwe for a show in the mining town of Gwanda on Saturday night. DJ Tira only discovered that he had lost his passport after his performance at Pheonix Night Club in Gwanda.
He flew into Zimbabwe on Saturday and travelled to Gwanda by road.
Taking to his official Facebook page on Sunday afternoon, DJ Tira appealed to anyone with information leading to the recovery of his passport. He wrote:
I have lost my passport in Gwanda, Zimbabwe if anyone finds it.
When contacted for a comment by The Chronicle, the promoter of the show, Junior Adious Moyo of Five Street Events, confirmed that the South African musician had lost his passport.
He said that DJ Tira was not sure if he had lost the passport in Bulawayo or in Gwanda. Moyo added that the musician will likely go to the South African Embassy in Harare this Monday for assistance. He said:
DJ Tira said he cannot find his passport. He isn’t sure whether it was lost in Gwanda or it was lost in Bulawayo. Perhaps he will go to the embassy in Harare on Monday so that they help him get travel documents.
Moyo also appealed to anyone who might have information or will find DJ Tira’s passport to call him on his cell on 0772 747 159.
DJ performed at the gig dubbed “A Night with DJ Tira Makoya Bearings”, where he shared the stage with DJ T Money, DJ Wyqlif, DJ Nicksoul and DJ Ajax.
After losing his passport, DJ Tira will likely miss his headline performance at Konka Sundays in South Africa on Sunday night which is featuring Pearl Thusi and DJ Stokie.
