Jah Prayzah

Can Jah Prayzah fill up Hartsfield?

Langalakhe Mabena
ITa��S exactly a year since Jah Prayzah last performed in the City of Kings and Queens where he failed to secure a strategic venue which could have accommodated his local fans who for so long have been longing to witness the Kutonga Kwaro hit maker on stage.

Finally, he will be performing at Hartsfield Tshisanyama on Saturday in a show dubbed the a�?April Music Shutdowna�?.

However, it remains to be seen whether the dreadlocked chanter who used to fill up venues in Bulawayo will be able to sell out his forthcoming show in the city.

As most of his local fans have never seen him perform live any song from his all-star album Kutonga Kwaro, a lot is expected from Jah Prayzah by his fans since he failed to launch the album last year in Bulawayo, perhaps the show would compensate for that.

Since the gig is a combined effort among organisers which include 2 Kings, 3D Events and Hartsfield Tshisanyama, Dee Nosh who represents the coalition revealed they strongly believe Jah Prayzah still possessedA� the capacity to fill up Hartsfield.

a�?It has been long since Jah Prayzah performed in the city and most of his fans are keen to see him perform live especially considering that he didna��t officially launch his album in Bulawayo, so we are very positive that most of his fans will grace the show.

a�?The venue on its own is strategic because it can accommodate the large audience we are expecting, most people spent the week busy at Zimbabwe International Trade Fair so on the last day of the exhibition which is the day of the show, exhibitors from across the country will be done with their work and ready to party with the a�?man of the momenta�� in the local music scene,a�? said Dee Nosh.

He also assured fans who will attend the show of security as the venue has a larger car parking space which will be protected by security guards.

Other artistes who will feature in the gig include Iyasa and Mzoe 7, DJ Liz, Craze Dee, Wellyonz, Eugy and Champion Sound will also showcase their skills on the decks.
