Jah Prayzah, Vee collaborate

HARARE - Afro-fusion musician Jah Prayzah is collaborating with Batswana musician Vee on a song yet to be titled.

The man-of-the moment was in Botswana last week recording the new song, before coming back on Friday for the Sam Mtukudzi commemorations.

His manager, Keen Mushapaidze confirmed the developments to the Daily News.

“Vee approached us after he heard our music and we figured why not? Jah Prayzah was in Botswana last week where they had an intense recording session for the song. I am not sure about the name yet, but it will be Vee featuring Jah,” he said.

Vee is popular in Zimbabwe for his song Taku Taku which was a hit at weddings, parties and in clubs.

This is not however, the first time that Jah Prayzah has collaborated with a musician from the country.

On the album Kumbumura Mhute, he collaborated with Charma Girl on the song Dali Wangu.

Mushapaidze added that there is a ready market in Botswana.

“There are a lot of Zimbabweans in Botswana but unfortunately there are not a lot of promoters who target Zimbabwean musicians. We would want to perform in that country,” he said.

It was a busy week for the musician who is expected in London for the Southern African Music Festival (Sama) 2016 scheduled for March 25. He will perform alongside the likes of Selmor Mtukudzi, Tocky Vibes and Winky Dee.
