Jah Prayzah, Killer T to rock Castle Tankard

HARARE - Award-winning artiste Jah Prayzah hopes to use his concert at the Castle Tankard to be held at the Borrowdale Race Course on Saturday to showcase the brilliance of his latest album Kumbumura Mhute.

Jah Prayzah, who will share the stage with dancehall star Killer T and jazz music veteran Bob Nyabinde says his latest album is one of his best ever.

“Kumbumura Mhute is one of my best albums to date because it bears testimony that I have matured as an artiste,” said the crowd-puller whose real name is Mukudzei Mukombe.

“Of course there will always be people with reservations but I am happy with the way the album is doing on the market. The fans are singing along whenever we perform the new songs.”

The Tsviriyo singer is hopeful that his latest offering will eventually win over the sceptics.

“People should not rush to judge the album. However good an album is, there will always will be people who see differently .That’s the nature of society.”

Jah Prayzah, whose discography includes Rudo Nerunyararo, Sungano, Ngwarira Kuparara and Tsviriyo, wowed a big crowd in his maiden appearance on the Telecel Main Stage on Sunday afternoon at the Harare International Festival of the Arts (Hifa).

With the Castle Tankard event also set to feature the high-riding Kelvin ‘Killer T’ Kusikwenyu, the expected bumper crowd will be in for a real treat.

The dancehall star made a successful maiden tour of the United Kingdom recetly, which had to be extended due to popular demand.

The organisers of the Castle Tankard have included 56-year-old Nyabinde to cater for the mature music fans.

The Chabuda Hapana hit-maker, who is backed by Savannah Drive, has produced well-received albums that include Pane Nyaya (2002), Ndiratidze (2004), Teerera (2006) and his latest offering Anzwa Hama released last year.

Kumbumura mhute is a massive flop. Jah may gloss over it the way he want but its a big flop. The same way MAcheso did with his latest album. Manje with biys dziri kubva pa mbare apo moto sunga dzisimbe. I attended one of the shows in Coventry UK last weekend. Zvava zvinhu with the likes of soul Jah Love and Shinso blowing roofs.
