G40 YOUTHS THREATEN JAH PRAYZAH | Some G40 youths, irked by Jah Prayzah’s upcoming new album, Kutonga Kwaro, have threatened him with violence.
“Jah Prayzah allow me to warn you to desist from interfering with Zanu PF party factional politics before it’s too late. It is not a secret today that you are reportedly being used to compose songs that fuel political divisions in this country,” said The Children of War Veterans, in a statement.
“I am advised that you are working with (Chris) Mutsvangwa and Phillip Chabata who are promoting you to release songs that seek to provoke and insult Zanu PF leadership. You are reportedly targeting certain groups of individuals in the party after you released the popular Mudhara Achauya song dedicating it to your factionalist (Mnangagwa), something you publicly denied. Today we hear you are about to release a song entitled Kutonga Kwaro. Another album intended at fanning factionalism.
“Be warned my brother, party yawasarudza kutamba navo iyi Isinjonjo. Tamba wakachenjera. Don’t be used by rich individuals to be their voices. Do not be blinded by the fact that you are allowed to wear Zimbabwe Defence Forces (ZDF) uniforms at your shows, neither should you be over excited by the drama raunoita uchizvipa security seya President iya around you wotofunga kuti wakatsika chinhu.
“…You are digging your own grave. Hona Energy Mutodi ave kumawere,” said Shoko.
But Jah Prayzah insists his music carries no political overtones.
“Art is out there to inspire people to talk. What we do as artists is interpreted in different ways by different people. It only means you are still creative if people come up with various meanings to what you give them. It should never be too obvious,” said Jah Prayzah to the Daily News through his manager Keen Mushapaidze.
