WILL Dancehall music “bad boy” Soul Jah Love learn from previous mistakes?
by Winstone Antonio
Just last week he spent time locked up at Mutare Central Police Station due to non-fulfilment of a contractual obligation and it appears he is determined not to stop; at least any time soon.
Over the weekend he pulled another shocker when he failed to attend his own album launch at Big Apple Nite Club in Harare after he reportedly missed his flight twice in South Africa.
Yes twice, not once!
The musician was supposed to have lunched his much-awaited album Kuponda Nhamo over the weekend, with many of his fans waiting for him at the venue, but surprisingly, the musician was nowhere to be found.
NewsDay is reliably informed that the chanter had to endure the long journey by bus from Mzansi back home arriving on Sunday after missing his launch and the Zimdancehall awards that were held on Friday.
Last week after two unfulfilled assignments in Mutare, politician and businessman Esau Mupfumi resorted to getting him locked up until a Harare promoter rescued him.
By the time the promoter secured his release, the Ndini Uya Uya singer was already running late for the South Africa show for which he was scheduled to leave on Friday hours after his release from the police cells.
At a time when the Conquering President, born Soul Musaka is supposed to be taking advantage and capitalise on his popularity on the showbiz scene, the musician he is proving to be carrying a bad boy tag boycotting shows.
His diverse lyrics have touched the hearts of all age groups, from the young to the old, but it seems as the musician is becoming big- headed going outside his comfort zone which might see his career going to the dogs.
On several occasions Jah Love has left fans upset. Recently he was banned from performing at Book Cafe in the capital for refusing to perform citing poor attendance.
