Soul Jah Love holds apology show

HARARE - Controversial Zimdancehall star Soul Jah Love finally held the highly-anticipated “apology show” at The Platinum in Mutare at the weekend where he shared the stage with dendera musician Suluman Chimbetu.

Soul Jah Love’s weekend show was held as compensation for two consecutive concerts that the Ndini Uya singer failed to fulfil at the popular entertainment venue.

Esau Mupfumi, who owns The Platinum, was delighted that his decision to prefer criminal charges against Soul Jah Love that saw the controversial artiste spending a night in jail had created a positive outcome.

“I was impressed by the performance and conduct displayed by the artiste here in Mutare over the weekend. It was a good show and it was sold out,” said Mupfumi.

“I am happy I pardoned the young man after making him see the error of his ways.

“The young artiste’s unprofessional conduct had been spurred on by promoters who failed to hold the musician to account for absconding shows for which he would have been paid.”

The promoter revealed that he ferried the musician from Harare to make sure that he would not disappoint his fans again.

“He was very cooperative this time. I ferried him together with his 15-member band and I believe his new manager Bounty Lisa (Soul Jah Love’s wife) is doing a great job in restraining the artiste,” said Mupfumi.

The show in the Eastern border town was the first time Soul Jah Love and Suluman got the chance to perform on the same stage since they collaborated on the song Nyuchi.

Suluman’s camp was equally happy with the conduct of the award-winning Zimdancehall star.

“Soul Jah Love is a good artiste but he only needs to be understood,” said Joe Nyamungoma, Chimbetu’s publicist.

While in Mutare, the controversial dancehall artiste paid a courtesy visit on Mutare Central Police Station where he was detained for one night after he had failed to perform twice at The Platinum.
