HARARE – High-riding music star Jah Prayzah says he will continue to unleash new music onto the market so as to remain relevant.
Even though his latest album Jerusarema, which he launched in May last year, is still fairly competitive, the Uzumba-born musician has already lined up a new album.
“I think the Zimbabwean music market is different from other countries. Here you need to continue supplying new stuff on the market for you to remain relevant. If you go silent you lose it; you are gone,” Jah Prayzah told the Daily News on Sunday.
The Tsviriyo hit-maker will launch a new album titled Mudhara Vachauya on August 12 in Harare.
Since the lanky artiste first rose to national prominence in 2009, thanks to his second album Sungano Yerudo, he has consistently released at least one album a year despite the scourge of music piracy.
“Piracy is here to stay. Whether one releases an album after 10 years it will make no difference as the product is going to suffer the same consequences,” he said.
Jah Prayzah said most of the tracks on the forthcoming 10-track album were now complete.
“Some of the songs on the album are the title track Mudhara Vachauya, Goto and Seke,” he said.
The popular music star’s other albums are Sungano Yerudo (2009), Ngwarira Kuparara (2011), Tsviriyo (2013) and Kumbumura Mhute (2014).
