HARARE – High-riding musician Jah Prayzah says a presentation ceremony for $12 000 and a musical kit he was promised by businessman Philip Chiyangwa and Tendai Savanhu respectively three months ago has been set for Mutare next month.
The two politicians pledged the presents during a high-profile launch of Jah Prayzah’s fourth album Tsviriyo which was also attended by Youth and Indigenisation minister Savior Kasukuwere and Uzumba legislator Simbaneuta Mudarikwa.
Jah Prayzah whose real name is Mukudzei Mukombe told the Daily News that the presents will be handed over on July 6 in Mutare.
“The date has been set when I will receive everything promised to me at the Tsviriyo launch at Jazz 105 three months ago,” said the dreadlocked star.
“July 6 is the date when I will receive $12 000 and title deeds of a residential stand from Chiyangwa and a new musical kit from Savanhu.
“The presentation will be at Pick and Save in Mutare.
“On the same date we will stage a family show at Pick and Save,” said the Sungano singer.
If the maverick businessman Chiyangwa pays the $12 000 he pledged during the auction of the 10-track Tsviriyo, it will be the highest ever paid for album in Zimbabwe.
Soon after Jah Prayzah launched his fourth album, a number of other artistes such as Tryson Chimbetu, and Peter Moyo also launched their albums respectively.
Peter Moyo’s debut album Mushonga Mukuru fetched $5 000 with Somandla Ndebele’s Zvemberi Makasa a mere netting $300.
