Jah Prayzah, Shinso in duet


WHAT does one expect when contemporary musician Jah Prayzah and dancehall father Shinsoman (real name Romeo Antony) combine their voices together?


It only needs one to listen to their duet Hauite that was recorded last week by award-winning producer Russo.

The duo continues to cement their studio relationship having featured on Botswana-based kwaito-kwassa star Aminoni “Mingo” Mojokeri’s compilation project titled From Bots to Zim.

Speaking to NewsDay, Jah Prayzah said he collaborated with Shinso as a way of honouring fans who demanded a duet.

“We could have released the song way back, but our schedules have been clashing and I am happy that we have fulfilled what our loyal fans requested from us,” Jah Prayzah said.

“Shinsoman has great talent and has an original way of expressing the ghetto art. This is an important project that has seen us exchanging a lot of ideas.”
The Tsviriyo singer said he had realised that there was power in working together as musicians.

“In this industry, it is important to work together and share ideas. This is no longer the time to attack each other through music,” Jah Prayzah said.

“I have worked with several artistes on many projects and have realised that, besides giving audiences variety, collaborations unite artistes.”

Jah Prayzah said the music industry had to unite artistes despite their different genres and he was prepared to feature on any musician’s project.

Many local musicians are relishing the sweet fruits of collaborations with Jah Prayzah having done a lot of duets with both local and international artistes.

Locally, Jah Prayzah has collaborated with superstar Oliver Mtukudzi, Ammara Brown, dendera musician Sulumani Chimbetu, gospel diva Fungisai Zvakavapano Mashavave while he featured Motswana Charma Gal on his latest offering Kumbumura Mhute.
