THERE are definitely interesting times ahead in Zimbabwe’s ever twisting music industry. In fact, this week is going to be quite eventful — Baba Harare, real name Braveman Chizvino, the 29-year-old artiste who recently dumped long time employer, Jah Prayzah, launches his album on Thursday.
The next day, Jah Prayzah unleashes Baba Harare’s replacement and unconfirmed reports say the artiste will release a single, recorded last year but recently pimped up and ready for the market. Baba Harare’s launch takes place in the CBD and if the line-up of artistes set to grace the event is anything to go by, then it is going to be explosive.
It also remains to be seen if Jah Prayzah himself will attend the launch. When former band member and alleged lover Pamela “Gonyeti” Zulu left the Third Generation band, Jah Prayzah’s outfit, to launch her own career, the “Eriza” hit singer was billed to attend but he never showed up on the day.
