Jah Prayzah launches new album

RISING star Jah Prayzah launched his fourth album at a colourful event at Jazz 105 on Wednesday night.

Report by Silence Charumbira
The new album — titled Tsviriyo — seemed to affirm the young musician as the next big thing on the local music front as he scales to greater heights.

In attendance were business mogul Phillip Chiyangwa, indigenisation minister Saviour Kasukuwere, Zimbabwe Tourism Authority boss Karikoga Kaseke, Zanu PF heavyweight Tendai Savanhu, Retired Major Anyway Mutambudzi, who represented Information minister Webster Shamu, flamboyant businessman and musician Energy Mutodi and Diamond Studios director Steady Munyanyi, among many other high-profile guests.

With attendees being caught up in the monster congestion due to the rains that pounded the capital on the day, it suddenly turned into a spectacle when the much improved Dembo brothers Morgan and Tendai went on stage.

In a wave motion, guests all shifted their attention to the stage signalling the beginning of the event.

For almost an hour speeches threatened to dampen the event, but the masters of ceremonies combination of Ronald Chiwanza, aka D-Train and the rebranding Zobha Mandizvidza, formerly Dr Zobha, kept the fire burning.

The climax came when with the auction of the first copy of the CD which the deep-pocketed jostled to grab initially appearing to have settled for $1 000.

It was Chiyangwa who had the crowd awestruck when he said he would buy the CD for a staggering $12 000.

It could not be ascertained whether or not the money will be handed over in cash or the musician will be seeing himself getting the pledge in the form of a house or residential stand.

The 10-track album features superstar Oliver Mtukudzi and Progress Chipfumo on the songs Sisiriya and Yambuka Rukova.

Jah Prayzah takes the role of social commentator touching on various themes that have a bearing on day-to-day life.

The approach taken by the musician has always been unique with his style taking an unpredictable form.

His rhymes are aided by a commanding vocal base that seems so rigid yet equally flexible rising from a low to pitch effortlessly.

  8. A shameless staged Zanu Pf charade. If the highest bidder had been $1000, how can someone suddenly bid $12000? These guys are running out of ideas. To the singer, remember what happened to Andy Brown and Chimbetu? If you go to bed with politicians be prepared for the morning after. Just a gentle advice.

    I have been impressed by this young man, his music is unique and he is surely the next big Zim Music Export after Oliver Mtukudzi. His type of music crosses boundaries and l only wish him the best in his future in the music industry.
