Zimbabwe’s Jah Prayzah Steals The Show in Swaziland

“When he (Jah Prayzah) started singing everyone began to dance such that by the time his performance came to an end music lovers did not want him to leave the stage.”

Jah Prayzah put up a thrilling performance that left many revelers and fans calling for more during the MTN Bushfire Festival, according to reports from Swaziland.

“When he (Jah Prayzah) started singing everyone began to dance such that by the time his performance came to an end music lovers did not want him to leave the stage,” according to a report from Swazi Times.

Jah Prayzah went into the festival as an underdog having not tested the Swazi market before but left Mbabane walking tall from the appreciation he got. Jah Prayzah is no doubt Zimbabwe’s biggest musical export in decades, enthralling tens of thousands of fans across Africa with his reggae infused African style.

He is popularly referred to by fans and media as “Musoja”, the Shona word for “the soldier”, a name he earned mostly because of his signature band uniform of military regalia.

His concerts in Zimbabwe, which are usually packed, look like military rallies with his devoted fans donning the same military look in honour of their musical hero.

Bushfire is Swaziland’s acclaimed international music and arts festival held each year at House on Fire, an inspired and magical venue combining sculpture, mosaic and theater built in the heart of the Ezulwini valley.

The festival sees some of Africa’s best artists performing in an intimate and 100% socially responsible festival. It has been Lauded by CNN as one of the “7 African music festivals you really have to see”, and recently named as BBC’s Top African Festival.

Performers during the Festival included South African legend Hugh Masekela, global exports GoodLuck, Kwesta, Reason and Matthew Mole, pan-African stars such as Jah Prayzah, Faada Freddy, Chico Antonio, Femi Koya, and Jojo Abot, Kwaito superstars TKZee, Congolese performer Baloji, the Taureg rebel Bombino, the Belgian / South African newcomer Petite Noir and Swazi afro-soul singer Sands. www.allnetafrica.com
