Social media went ablaze on Tuesday as videos of man of the moment Jah Prayzah being attacked and running for dear life at the burial of his late security chief made rounds on Whatsapp and Facebook. The’ Kutonga Kwaro’ hitmaker post on his Military Touch Movement’s Facebook page saying, “Sticks and stones may break my bones but Zimbabweans will heal me I love you Zimbabwe,” could be seen as his attempt to quickly get over the shameful act that has continued to dominate headlines including spilling into parliament.
The post was received with mixed reactions with some fans showing very little or mo remorse with the lanky musician who is currently the hottest artist in the country.
“Muudzei kuti isu tiri vanhu vatema kana une mbiri ndeyako kana uri paruzhinji ita hunhu” commented one Kingstone Gwizo.
“Uri kunyanya kutivhairira kumashows uko after all we would have paid to come see you perform. Don’t forget kwawakabva, pauri wakasvitswa nevanhu. Hanzi naLeonard Zhakata “Tendeuka tendeuka nyora gadziriso yemaitiro ako, chidhanana chinzwa tendeuka tendeuka,” charged one Mike Chigerwe.
Typical of Zimbabweans, some are finding humour in the predicament and have come up with phrases like ‘Jah Bolt, ’speed three graves per second,’ game of stones, among others.
Some fans’ attention has been drawn back to his past altercation with former dancer and backing vocalist, Gonyeti who unceremoniously left Third Generation accusing his former paymaster of sexually abusing him.
“I’m your biggest fan Jah and i love your music asi treat vana vevamwe sezvaunoda kuti wako agoitwawo, gore riya it was Gonyeti and we all castigated and accused her of lying , tevere Baba Harare ukavanyararidza nhasi Chris vese vari kunyepa?” querried Lloyd Max Muzondiwa.
However despite all the criticism some fans have stood by their icon and have been supporting him.
“Soja kusvikira ndafa ini nemhuri yangu even kari under 2 years we love you Jah” commenting Chiedza M Gandiwa.
“Torai ma funeral policy musarova Jah godo ravo we love you Jah” was Judith Chipungu’s comment meaning it was wasn’t Jah Prayzah’s obligation to help out at the funeral.
Meanwhile, Jah Prayzah has released his second video for the track Chengetedza off his new album Kutonga Kwaro and the video is doing well on YouTube where it has been trending on number one. The video which was shot in South Africa is a continuation of his duet with Davido of Nigeria.
