Performing at the Southern African Music and Arts (Sama) Festival ... Winky D

AFTER causing waves in local showbiz, two leading musicians Jah Prayzah and Winky D are set to headline the annual Southern African Music and Arts (Sama) Festival next month in the United Kingdom.

The two National Arts Merit Awards (Nama) 2016 nominees will be sharing the stage with other local musicians such as Zimdancehall artiste Tocky Vibes, Selmor Mtukudzi and Tendai Manatsa among others on March 26 in Leicester, courtesy of Y2K Promotions.

Winky D’s award-winning manager Jonathan Banda confirmed the trip.

“We are taking our music again to the United Kingdom and this time around we will make their (fans in the UK) problems disappear,” said Banda.

This is not the first time the two leading musicians share the stage as they have a history of packing entertainment joints to the rafters, locally.

On New Year’s Eve they joined forces and filled up the Harare International Conference Centre before sharing the stage again at 7 Arts Theatre in the capital recently.

The Jerusarema singer performed in Australia last week.

Since Winky D launched the hit album Gafa Life (Kickstape) late last year, the project has literally revived his fortunes in the Zimdancehall arena.

Of late, the song Disappear off the latest album Gafa Life is topping the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) Radio 1Extra Destination Africa Top 5.

The song was produced by Oskid at KeNako Muzik.

On the BBC radio charts, Disappear is competing with other equally talented artistes from the continent in form of Ghanaian star’s Shatta Wale (Hol’ It); AY (Zigo Remix); Black Coffe (We Dance Again) and 25-year-old Nigerian music star Wizkid (Final) among others.

Apart from Disappear, Winky D’s latest album carries hits like Mirror, Woshora, Idya Mari, Ngoma Futi, Survivor featuring Shinsoman, Copyrights, Holiday featuring Guspy Warrior and Not Nice.

On the other hand, Jah Prayzah continues to scale heights with hit album Jerusarema released last year on May 22 at the HICC.

Again the album has revived his fortunes that were fading on the music scene. Since he launched the project, Jah Prayzah rose to become a force to reckon with in the showbiz circles.
