Zimbabwe’s musician of the moment Jah Prayzah otherwise known as Musoja or soldier in Shona is coming to perform both in Lilongwe and Blantyre this December.
Loved in Malawi for his hit song Mudhara Vachauya which is popular at weddings, parties and other social gatherings, the artist is coming courtesy of Agulugufe Twelve Thousand Limited.
He will perform at Civo Stadium in Lilongwe on December 23 and in Blantyre at the Blantyre Sports Club on Christman Eve.
According to Africano Phiri, one of the organisers, the Zimbabwean artist will be supported by Lawi and Lulu during both shows.
“Jah Prayzah is coming with a full band of 11 which includes his dancing queens. This will be a live band performance,” said Phiri.
The musician has been gaining musical ground in the past few years.
He is a band member of the group Third Generation. His first experience with composing music was during his early years of high school. He started to record dancehall and reggae tracks with his friends with some tracks creating a vibe in the suburb but failed to hit the national music scene.
Later, he recorded contemporary music and Afrojazz tracks with DJ Thando and other local producers, releasing singles such as Sorry Mama and Seiko.
In 2007 he released his first album Sungano. He then released two more albums, Rudo neRunyararo and Ngwarira Kuparara.
The last one was successful and contained the singles Gotchi Gotchi, Maria and Dande, the latter of which featured the late Chiwoniso Maraire also known as the Rebel Woman.
In 2013, he released his fourth album Tsviriyo. In 2014, he released Kumbumura Mhute.
In 2015, he opened a new studio and released his sixth studio album Mdhara Vachauya.
The album reached overwhelming levels of success in less than a month of its release. Mdhara Vachauya carries an excess of feel good and happy songs, which include Watora Mari, his collaboration with Tanzanian icon, Diamond Platnumz.
Jah Prayzah, real name Mukudzeyi Mukombe, was born on July 4, 1987 in Uzumba, Zimbabwe. n
