Jive Zim­babwe di­rec­tor; Ben­jamin Nyan­doro said as pro­mot­ers and part­ners to Jah Prayzah’s mu­sic and brand, they were ex­cited to be giv­ing away huge prizes to pro­mote the al­bum.

The com­pe­ti­tion draws will be held in Harare and Bu­l­awayo with Bu­l­awayo one slated for to­day at OK, TM and Chop­pies stores.

“We’ve two of the lat­est ver­sions of the Toy­ota Vitz val­ued at $6,500 up for grabs. One will be won in Harare while the other in Bu­l­awayo. We also have TV sets and fridges.

“The first pro­mo­tion will be in Harare and the last in Bu­l­awayo. There’s al­ready much hype about the al­bum and we want to give fans value for their money and good qual­ity mu­sic,” said Nyan­doro.

The show is pegged at $5 be­fore 10pm and $10 there­after. — @pe­terk­matika CAL_VIN, “that Lu­veve boy”, feels he is ready to launch his al­bum this Satur­day with 500 ad­vance tick­ets he availed al­most sold out.

The al­bum, Planet Vin, will be launched at Elite 400 in Bu­l­awayo at an event he has dubbed: “Made in Bu­l­awayo Hip Hop Con­cert”.

Fel­low Bu­l­awayo artistes, Maw­iza, Frost, As­aph, GTi, Mzoe7, Cliff Jeans, Super Geeks, Te3vo, Bry­three­sixty, Jun­gle Bwoi, Crys­talline and DJs Skaiva and Arnold will as­sist him un­veil his lat­est ad­di­tion.

Cal_Vin, who per­formed to a full house in Vic­to­ria Falls last week­end, said all was set for the al­bum launch, adding that it was go­ing to be mo­men­tous.

“I’ve al­ready sold nearly 400 tick­ets at $3 each. The night will be his­toric and mem­o­rable,” said Cal_Vin.

It will be a dou­ble cel­e­bra­tion for Cal_Vin as he will, on the same night, per­form with Jah Prayzah who is also launch­ing his lat­est al­bum – Mud­hara Vachauya in the city. Jah Prayzah’s launch will be at the Large City Hall Car Park.

“Peo­ple shouldn’t panic that the two events will clash as my launch will be at 5PM while Jah Prayzah’s is ex­pected to start at about 9PM. At that time, I’ll be long done,” said Cal_Vin.

The hip hop artiste, who is cur­rently on a mu­si­cal break, said af­ter Planet Vin, he would not be re­leas­ing an­other al­bum any­time soon.

Over the past months, Cal_Vin has re­leased tracks My Life, Izandla Emoyeni (fea­tur­ing As­aph) and Pic­ture Per­fect (fea­tur­ing Jun­gle Bwoi) from this forth­com­ing al­bum. The songs have re­ceived pos­i­tive feed­back show­ing that Cal_Vin may be billed for more awards from this al­bum. He said he was con­sid­er­ing col­lab­o­rat­ing with some artistes from Vic­to­ria Falls whom he de­scribed as a “side­lined” lot.

CrisOzzy, real name Owen Ndlovu, one of the artistes who per­formed with Cal_Vin in the re­sort town, said he hoped to col­lab­o­rate with “that Lu­veve boy”.

“I wish to work with peo­ple like Cal_Vin. Some­times in this in­dus­try, it’s not about mak­ing money, but build­ing a name and trust among your fans,” said Cris­sOzzy.
