Batswana musician Chama Girl, popularly known as Culture Spears, is set to grace the launch of contemporary artiste Jah Prayzah’s album, slated for the Harare International Conference Centre on April 16.

The two artistes recorded a duet called “Dali Wami” earlier this year that will feature on Jah Prayzah’s coming album “Kumbumura Mhute”.

Other artistes that are expected to be present include Suluman Chimbetu and Ammara Brown, who have already done collaborations with Jah Prayzah.

Speaking to The Herald Entertainment, Jah Prayzah said Culture Spears had confirmed the tour.

“Their travelling arrangements have been made and she is coming with a full band,” he said.

The musician believes the album will take him to another level in the music industry.

“I never thought ‘Tsviriyo’ would do well so I want to improve on that,” he said.

Jah Prayzah is well known for his love songs that are complemented by his raspy voice. Though the musician is always blasted for appearing late at some events, he has managed to stage entertaining shows locally and abroad.

In one of the songs, the musician blasted his brother Joel for taking his life last year in December.

“You have decided to take your life yet other people try to save their life when they fall ill,” goes part of the lyrics.

The musician said he had decided to rope in Chama Girl because of the love he has for traditional music.

“I grew up in Murehwa and my father was a headmaster who encouraged me to read novels and we used to participate in some traditional ceremonies and that’s how the love of traditional music came,” he said.

Turning to the corporate world, the musician said he was happy with the support he was getting through endorsement deals.

“A lot has been said about my army fatigue but it seems the corporate world is gaining confidence in us as a band,” he said.

He said plans were underway to launch the album across Zimbabwe.
