Jah Prayzah’s manager Keen Mushapaidze confirmed to NewsDay that they were going to trim the band in line with the UK-based promoter’s conditions meant to cut costs.

“We are going to be travelling without eight of our band members, not that they are less important, but it is the promoters’ request for us to trim our band,” Mushapaidze said.

“We promise a good performance to our fans since all our members are multi-skilled. In our effort to grow we would like a situation whereby we travel with the entire band to all our live shows.”

The Kumbumura Mhute singer is expected to depart on June 23 for the concert and return on June 29.

At the show, the Uzumba-bred award-winning musician will share the stage with super star Oliver Mtukudzi and the Black Spirits, dancehall chanter Tocky Vibes and Mbare-born chanter Kinnah.

Meanwhile, a massive farewell gig has been lined up at Dandaro Inn, Harare Showgrounds, tomorrow featuring Dendera ace Sulumani Chimbetu and Herbert Majeke, among others.

“We are happy that preparations for the UK concert are going according to script. We are taking our latest album Jerusarema to our UK fans,” Mushapaidze said.

“Tomorrow local fans should come in their numbers for the farewell gig as there will be a lot in store and we promise surprises.”

UK has slowly become a second home for local musicians who are “stampeding” to stage shows in that country.

  2. definitely the members who are remaining behind will feel less important, what was the criteria for the selection for those who are going, u must compensate them, at times you must tell your promoters what you want rather than be told.
