Soul Jah Love seals it

HARARE - Several dancehall artistes endorsed Soul Jah Love and Bounty Lisa’s engagement party with an explosive show that ended in the wee hours of Sunday morning with revellers still wanting more.

The concert, however, had its hiccups including a poor stage set-up that made it difficult for the crowd to see the performers.

That, however, did little to dampen the hearts of the crowd dominated by young adults who were kept on their toes by some of Zimbabwe’s leading dancehall artistes who came in droves to lend seals of approval to Soul Jah Love’s engagement to his fiancée Bounty Lisa.

Seh Calaz, born Tawanda Mumanyi, was one of the standout performers on the night, belting out the popular Mumota Murikubvira among a host of his club bangers much to the pleasure of the animated crowd.

But Seh Calaz’s vulgar chants at the end of each of his songs did not go down well with a section of dancehall artistes.

Some even felt the chants were directed at the two lovebirds Soul Jah Love and Bounty Lisa. Dancehall artiste Qonfused attacked the 24-year-old Mbare star as he was leaving the stage.

The scuffle was quickly doused by people close to the stage before it had escalated but the drama was far from over. In the ensuing melee, Qonfused tried to make a quick getaway but Seh Calaz’s fans vented their anger by smashing the windscreen of the Mercedes Benz he was driving.

Qonfused and the Mabhanditi hit-maker were later picked up by the police but that did not stop the party from continuing.

The scuffle between Qonfused and Seh Calaz was not an isolated incident. Controversial dancehall star Platinum Prince had a rough night, with revellers hurling missiles at him for dissing Mbare’s blue-eyed boy Kinnah.

Away from the occasional flare of violence, it was not all gloom for all the performers with Ricky Fire setting the stage alight by belting out several of his tracks that are infamous for their obscenities.

Chitungwiza chanter Dadza D, also known as Prince of Fire, rolled back the years with a surprise appearance in support of Soul Jah Love.
