Tsviriyo set the bar high for Jah Prayzah

Jah Prayzah

Jah Prayzah’s new album “Kumbumura Mhute” has been received with mixed feelings with some critics saying he has stretched his versatility too far and risks losing identity of his music. Some have pointed out that he has borrowed a lot, in terms of style, from other musicians.

While it is a fact that the album falls below the “Tsviriyo” standard some listeners have dismissed “Kumbura Mhute” as a flop but others feel the musician still has his good touch. Star FM listeners’ comments on the station’s music review show indicate that the majority accepted the album and showered praises on Jah Prayzah.

However there have been serious arguments on social networks where various positive and negative issues about “Kumbura Mhute” have been raised. Jah Prayzah has always used diverse beats and previously argued he aims to capture emotions through alternating between fast and slow tempos while his music is mainly hinged on traditional and reggae beats.

Chimurenga Music Company (CMC), which handles the affairs of Chimurenga musician Dr Thomas Mapfumo has blasted local music promoters for providing misleading facts about the musician’s homecoming shows scheduled for September this year.

Speaking through their publicist Blessing Vava, CMC said they had nothing to do with the local promoters who are misleading fans on the musician’s homecoming gig dubbed “Gudo Mumunda” as it is their company which is solely handling both the promotion and marketing of the shows.

“We disassociate ourselves from claims by some local music promoters that they have already sealed deals with Dr Mapfumo for the homecoming shows. READ MORE AFTER THE CUT

Will divorce cost Macheso Endorsement deals?

MACHESO4

Alick Macheso

Could the high profile divorce between sungura star Alick Macheso and his second wife Tafadzwa Mapako cost the singer his endorsement deals? Macheso who is lovingly called Baba Sharo after his first daughter, is the humanitarian ambassador for Zimbabwe Red Cross Society and also the face of Bakers Inn’s Zvazvinhu brand.

However, Takesure Mazuruse, the ZRCS marketing and public relations manager could not confirm whether or not Macheso would be stripped of his ambassadorial role. Mazuruse said the organisation treated the divorce as a personal matter since it did not affect Macheso in his capacity as the humanitarian ambassador.

We have our first show at Private Lounge on April 30.

Is Roki a Spent force?

Roki salutes the crowd at Belgravia Sports Club after his lacklustre act

The fact that Rockford “Roki” Josphat is a talented artiste is unquestionable but, after his lacklustre performance at South African group, Uhuru’s concert held at Belgravia Sports Club last weekend, many are beginning to see him as a spent force.

Sadder still, if one thinks of Roki as an artiste who once scooped the 2003 Nama for Best Urban Grooves Artiste; the Zima Song of the Year award with “Chidzoka” and capped it all with Zima Best Video of the Year – again with “Chidzoka” you would feel pity for him. He was a pale shadow of his former self. Back in the day, when he was still known as “Rocqui” and not “Roki”. READ MOTRE AFTER THE CUT

P. Diddy heads the Richest Hip hop artists in the world

According to Forbes, Diddy, Dr Dre, Jay Z, Birdman and 50 cent are the richest Hip Hop artists in the world currently…in that order. Didddy is now worth $700million. Wow! See the full report below…

Back in 2007, Sean “Diddy” Combs teamed with Jay Z and 50 Cent to create a song titled “I Get Money: Forbes 1-2-3 Billion Dollar Remix.” Less than a decade later, rappers are closing in on ten-figure fortunes, and he’s the nearest of the bunch.

Diddy leads the pack with an estimated fortune of $700 million, an increase of $120 million over his net worth last year. The change comes largely from the addition of Revolt TV—the new, music-focused, multi-platform channel of which he’s the majority owner—to his already-hefty portfolio. READ MORE AFTER THE CUT
