CONTEMPORARY musician, Jah Prayzah’s fans are tonight in for a treat as the lanky musician and his Third Generation Band will be presenting songs from his forthcoming album at The Platinum.
The last time the multi-award winning musician lit the spacious entertainment joint on fire he was backed by rising Afro-fusion crooner, Andy Muridzo who is also a member of the Jah Prayzah-led Military Touch Movement.
Jah Prayzah’s dynamism, deep and inspiring lyrics as well as his outfit’s well-choreographed acts have endeared him with scores of admirers — of all ages —s across the globe and tonight’s gig will be a perfect comeback for the shrewd lyricist who is readying for a new album.
In an interview, Jah Prayzah, through his management, told The Weekender that they were going to surprise his fans with new songs as well as more polished acts as an appreciation the latter have exhibited throughout his evergreen awards-laden musical career. Unlike his last gig when he jumped on stage after midnight, much to the chagrin of hundreds of fans who thronged the venue, this time, the ‘‘Jerusarema’’ singer promised to date his fans earlier.
“We will sample songs from the forthcoming album which we are yet to christen. We always have new stuff for our fans. The album is coming out soon and we are upbeat that our fans will love the new productions, particularly basing on how our fans elsewhere have been responding to some of the unreleased songs. We will not divulge much about the forthcoming album, but we can assure our fans that we will present some of the new songs in Mutare on Friday in full,” said Jah, speaking through his manager, Keen Mushapaidze.
Another member of the Military Touch Movement, DJ Tamuka will warm the stage for Jah Prayzah who is expected to jump on to the stage between 10pm and 11pm. The Movement which has taken the local musical scene by storm also comprises ExQ, Nutty O and Tahle.
The band captivates revellers with his military-like choreographic acts. Not even the departure of former lead guitarist Braveman “Baba Harare” Chizvino who dumped the band to form own eight-member outfit, The City Vibration Band has affected the band’s choreography.
The show starts at 8pm. “Patrons and fun lovers will part with $5 as entrance fee. An array of local artistes will take turns to entertain early birds before Jah Prayzah’s act. We urge fun lovers across all ages to come in their numbers and be part of the potentially-explosive gig,” said one of the organisers.
