Jah Prayzah to sample new album
Contemporary musician Jah Prayzah is expected to give fans a foretaste of his upcoming album, due for release anytime soon, when he performs at the Aquatic Complex in Chitungwiza on December 6.
The musician, who will be part of a coterie of an exciting combination of musicians that will include Oliver Mtukudzi, sungura ace Alick Macheso and dendera crooner Douglas Chimbetu is expected to rev up his act with the inclusion of the new songs.
“It has been a long journey, but I am happy to say that the rewards have been good. My album together with the DVD have been doing well and I already working on a new project for next year,” he said.
He urged his fans to support his musical projects, which he said were getting better with each release.
The beauty about the gig is that fans will not only see Jah Prayzah in action on that particular day, but will witness a fine act from four artistes, who have proved all dry and sundry that they are good performers.
Without even talking about the reasonable cheap entrance fee of US$5, courtesy of Simmad Productions, the morale is high among music fans, who are making preparations to partake in fun and musical festivity that will characterise the night, spilling over into the next morning.
Fans will enjoy the best of both worlds, what with katekwe, contemporary beat, dendera and sungura — all under one venue.
For those fans, who have heard so much and had not seen Douglas, staging a live gig, the December 6 show will at least afford them an opportunity to watch him play some of his late uncle Simon Chimbetu’s songs, that one would be forgiven to think that it actually the late legend serenading fans.
Those who love contemporary music will certainly fall in love with Jah Prayzah’s music, especially when he plays hits like “Machembere”, “Ngoda” and the classic “Sungano”, which gave him fame that is now enjoying today, while Mtukudzi will also serenade fans with some of his timeless hits, and some of his up-tempo tunes that include “Tozeza” and “Madiro”.
Mtukudzi’s Black Spirits band, which has undergone some radical changes, currently features an all-male line-up. THE HERALD
