ZIMBABWE’S top young musicians, Sulumani Chimbetu and Jah Prayzah, at the weekend disappointed Harare revellers after they “snubbed” the South African hitmaker, Zahara.
The visiting star was the guest singer at the People Awards which were held at the Harare International Conference Centre HICC.
Sulu and Prayzah chose to impress their mentor Oliver Mtukudzi who was celebrating 40 years in music at his Norton’s Pakare Paye Arts Centre.
The two had confirmed they would take part at both events only to disappoint the HICC Devine Assignments and Star FM-organised Zahara show despite having been paid in advance.
Jah Prayzah had a brief attendance at the Zahara show where he performed for not more than one hour before making the 45 kilometres journey to Norton.
At HICC he (Jah Prayzah) had no musical instruments for his short performance a development which disappointed revelers who are used to seeing the dreadlocked musician performing with his band.
His fellow musician Sulu never set a foot at the HICC and was seen at Pakare Paye where he opened the show and performed from 8pm to the early hours of Sunday before he left the stage for Tuku who performed for two hours.
Jah Prayzah took to the stage at around 2 am Sunday until 0430 hours where he left music fans crying for more.
At his 40th music anniversary Tuku performed for one and a half hours before he was joined on stage by his South African colleague Ringo Madlingozi who only performed for 30 minutes.Advertisement
