Uzumba born contemporary musician “Mukudzei Jah Prayzah” Mukombe has assured music lovers that his ninth album launch, Chitubu, slated for Harare International Conference Centre on 2 November will go through, despite the current confusion on the currency market.
Speaking through his manager, Keen Mushapaidze, the superstar said they prepared for the launch well in time, before exchange rates started soaring.
“We paid for almost all services needed for the launch way before inflation rates got to where they are today. So we are unworried by the situation as we preplanned it well. Nothing will stop us,” said Mushapaidze.
He added that they are not looking to make profits from the album launch, hence, affordable gate fees for all.
“Usually, with our official album launches, returns are not prioritized. The provision of our product and its reception is all we care about, everything else is bonus.
“We will be releasing ticket sells next week and for now we are maintaining prices that we had discussed and deliberated on initially, (that is local currency and payment methods) unless if something comes up in terms of financial laws and policies”
Chitubu is a make or break moment for Jah Prayzah following two lukewarm singles this year, Ronika and Angel lo.
His last album “Kutonga Kwaro,” was only saved by political events of 17 November 2017 with the title track and ndini ndamubata becoming an anthem songs against former president Robert Mugabe.
