FANS who have lis­tened to Jah Prayzah’s new 11 track al­bum Md­hara Vachauya have given it a seal of ap­proval with su­per­star Oliver Mtukudzi com­mend­ing the con­tem­po­rary mu­si­cian for his con­sis­tency.

Over the week­end, Jah Prayzah held two al­bum launches, one in Harare at the HICC and the other in Bu­l­awayo at the Large City Hall in front of bumper crowds on both oc­ca­sions.

At the al­bum launch in Harare, Tuku took to the stage and heaped praises on Jah Prayzah.

“The young man is do­ing well. Jah aenda nenyika,” said Tuku.

Zim­dance­hall idol Winky D’s man­ager Jonathan Banda said it was a great al­bum that has set the stan­dards for oth­ers to fol­low.

“The al­bum has a song with Di­a­mond Plat­inumz that has tran­scended the bor­ders which is a good thing for Zim­bab­wean mu­sic. This has set a great plat­form for other artistes to do the same. All in all this is a great al­bum,” said Banda.

Con­cur­ring with the two, some have taken to Jah Prayzah’s Facebook fan page to ex­press their feel­ings on the al­bum.

From the com­ments, most peo­ple like Wa­tora Mari, Seke and the ti­tle track, with some say­ing the songs will dom­i­nate at wed­dings. A fan, Richard Si­pawe, said he liked Jah Prayzah’s al­bum be­cause it was di­verse. “Thanks for such an out­stand­ing al­bum. Your mouth is a dan­ger­ous in­stru­ment. It’s so touch­ing to me since am the last born and that’s the way my mom treats me, you al­ways re­mind me to do great things for my par­ents. Another point to note is you are cre­ative; your al­bum con­tains a reg­gae feel,” he said. Tin­doe Sejo Chizema en­cour­aged Jah Prayzah to col­lab­o­rate more with artistes out­side Zim­babwe. “Sol­dier you can col­lab­o­rate with any­one with your type of mu­sic. Please con­tinue col­lab­o­rat­ing with a lot of in­ter­na­tion­als. Start­ing with SA mu­si­cians, chim­boti­ranga takamirira, #sol­dierRi­noen­daKure”.

How­ever, some fans said the al­bum was sub­stan­dard with the only no­table song be­ing Wa­tora Mari.

Oth­ers said the al­bum failed to sur­pass the stan­dard set by his pre­vi­ous of­fer­ing Jerusarema.

“So, Jah Prayzah’s lat­est al­bum Md­hara Vachauya was the talk of the town. In fact there was a down­right racket in cen­tral Harare and so I bought my­self a copy. Well, save for one song, let me say, Md­hara vakaku­ru­midzisa ku­uya, dai vakam­bog­a­rako (he was hasty in his come­back he should have waited),” posted one fan.

Jah Prayzah said the 11-track Md­hara Vachauya con­sisted of love and party songs.

The ti­tle track — Md­hara Vachauya — which some thought was meant to show who the big boss was — is how­ever, a love song which he com­posed for his wife.

“Md­hara Vachauya is ba­si­cally a love song. It’s meant to cheer my wife when I’m not with her. It’s a re­minder that each time I’ll be away, I’ll have gone to look for money. “When­ever she misses me or when peo­ple bother her, she should al­ways know that I’m here for her”, he said.

Seke, track num­ber eight on the al­bum, was com­posed for the artiste’s mother.

“My mother used to cy­cle to work so that she could fend for us. I de­cided to com­pose a song to thank her be­cause I’m where I am to­day be­cause of her.

“I called the track Seke be­cause she stays in Seke so we call her Seke Mutema.”

His full al­bum is avail­able on video shar­ing site YouTube for those who can’t get the CDs.

— @bon­ganinkunzi. LADIES could one of you please marry gospel hip hop mu­si­cian Mudiwa as he has time and time again shown he is des­per­ate for a wife.

His lat­est post on Facebook con­firms that he is sin­gle and ready for the tak­ing.

For the past few months, Mudiwa (real name Mudiwa Mtandwa), has been pen­ning let­ters ti­tled Dear Wife to be on his Facebook wall.

Among the prom­ises to his wife to be were that he would pay for the wed­ding and after post­ing a pic­ture of his sis­ter Lynn Shupi Mtandwa, he said the two would be good friends.

With four m on t h s to go be­fore Christ­mas, Mudiwa has sent out an SOS to women out there say­ing he can’t spend the fes­tive sea­son alone again.

“It looks like am go­ing to hit another Christ­mas; sin­gle again. I do not like this at all. I miss be­ing loved, asked where I am, who is tex­ting me and get­ting those ‘I miss you and good­night hun’, mes­sages.

“May be this po­si­tion will give me more time to work on my New Al­bum, but mm­mmm if I had a way I would marry this Year. Love is a beau­ti­ful thing,” posted Mudiwa.

Mudiwa last week posted a “Cur­ricu­lum Vi­tae” hash tagged #ýKnowYourBoiMudiwa?, chron­i­cling his qual­i­ties such as hold­ing a Masters in Fi­nance, be­ing hand­some, of sober habits and God fear­ing.

“You can be so swag­ga­li­cious, rich, good look­ing, in­tel­li­gent and smart. At the same time be faith­ful, hon­est, God-fear­ing and hum­ble (but they will never as­so­ciate suc­cess with hu­mil­ity, you’ll be said to have pride, but care not).

“I don’t drink (per­sonal choice), hardly go out, if I do am get­ting paid, I’m Chris­tian by con­vic­tion not con­ve­nience,” posted Mudiwa. It seems Mudiwa has not re­cov­ered from his sen­sa­tional break up with his long time girl­friend Karen last year in Novem­ber, judg­ing by his antics.

Ef­forts to get a com­ment from Mudiwa, to fur­ther ex­plain his posts, were fruit­less yes­ter­day as his mo­bile phone was un­reach­able. —@bon­ganinkunzi
