Jah Prayzah launches fifth album tonight

HARARE - Jah Prayzah will release a 10-track album at the Harare International Conference Centre (HICC) tonight which he hopes will catapult him to the next level of his career.

The launch of his fifth album titled Kumbumura Mhute in the 5 000-seater HICC auditorium clearly demonstrates Jah Prayzah’s belief that he has entered the big league.

Jah Prayzah, who has held his previous album launches at much smaller venues, seems determined to fortify his position as one of Zimbabwe’s most followed musicians.

The Uzumba-born artiste has been performing songs on the new albums in his concerts over the past month.

Potential hits on the new offering include the up-tempo title track Kumbumura Mhute which is a feel-good song likely to remind many of Tsviriyo, the title track of his fourth album.

Judging from fan responses during his concerts leading-up to tonight’s launch, the track titled Makanika could prove to be the main hit.

Makanika is about a Nigerian man who falls in love with a Zimbabwean woman. The West African man urges her lover to introduce him to her parents because he is so determined to settle in this country.

With its dose of Nigerian lingo and accent, Makanika has the potential to solidify his rising status as one of Zimbabwe’s star entertainers.

Jah Prayzah’s finest moment tonight will be graced by his long-time friend Suluman Chimbetu, energetic songstress Ammara Brown and Botswana diva Magdeline Lesolebe who is popularly known as Charma Gal. The Tswana musician is a member of the famous Culture Spears.

As per tradition, John Muroyi of Diamond Studios told a press conference that there will be an auction of the album during the launch that will be graced by Zimbabwe Defence Forces commander general Constantine Chiwenga.
