Zimbabwean music heavyweight Jah Prayzah who was billed for a gig in Bulawayo on 9 November has finally committed to fulfilling a date with local fans with a compensation show set for 29 November.
The much-anticipated show was supposed to be held at Homestead Conference Centre.
The singer, who last performed in the city in April at the Zimbabwe International Trade Fair shutdown party, cancelled his date with Bulawayo early November due to an “obstacle” which was beyond the superstar’s power.
Two weeks down the line, Keen Mushapaidze who is Jah Prayzah’s manager revealed that a family commitment prevented the dreadlocked artiste from gracing the local gig.
“Jah Prayzah was billed to perform in the City of Kings in early November at Homestead Conference Centre. However, family commitment made him to postpone the gig to 29 November at the same venue.
“We sincerely apologise to his loyal fans as we are aware, they have been longing to see him on stage. He also loves and misses performing in the city, that’s why we made it a point that we do a compensation show,” said Mushapaidze.
Mushapaidze also revealed that Jah Prayzah and the 3rd Generation band were working on new routines and standard choreography that would be served for the first time in Bulawayo.
“Most of his (Jah Prayzah) fans have been used to certain dances and moves in his performances. However, this time around we are bringing something new with a good flavour of choreography so that fans get good value for their money,” said Mushapaidze.
On stage, Jah Prayzah will be joined by Gwanda’s fast rising Master Zhou and Madlela Skhobokhobo.
Meanwhile, Mushapaidze revealed that Jah Prayzah would release two singles before the year ends as a Christmas present to his loyal fans.
An album will follow in the first quarter of 2020.
