ZIMBABWEAN music star Jah Prayzah is set to feature in Grammy award-winning group Morgan Heritage’s album, which will be released soon.
Jah Prayzah will be part of the group’s project featuring other renowned African artists like Tanzania’s Diamond Platinum.
The artist believes the venture is another step towards placing his music on the global stage.
‘‘I did one song with them which will be part of their album featuring other African musicians. It’s a love song. It’s a chance for my music to also get attention with other markets and countries and it’s a great advantage to me,” he said.
True to his identity, Jah Prayzah is proud to have expressed his rich Shona lyrical skills in the collaboration.
He added, ‘‘Usually despite who I am doing a collaborating with my vernacular language is always my comfort zone and I think I express myself better in my own language and in most cases, I make others try my own language.”
Jah Prayzah also revealed that he will release a new album in May.
Born Mukudzei Mukombe, Jah Prayzah has done a number of regional and international collaborations, including ‘My Lily’ featuring Nigeria star Davido, ‘Watora Mari’ with Diamond Platinumz and ‘Angel Lo’ with Jah Cure.
He joins a long list of African musicians featuring in Morgan Heritage’s African project.
