Jah Prayzah Set To Conquer Africa -- Gets Collabo With Davido In Shona

Jah Prayzah has continued with his quest to conquer Africa by recording a collabo with popular Nigerian star, Davido. 

To underline his status as one of the biggest artiste on the continent, Davido’s If video was posted on YouTube on February 17 this year and was on 19,232,873 (yes 19 million) views as of last night. Davido is currently doing very well with his latest release, Fall which was posted on YouTube on June 2 and already had 1,692,439 views as of 6pm yesterday.

In an EXCLUSIVE interview, Davido said he misses Zimbabwean fans and would want another show in the country soon. “I was happy to work with Jah Prayzah… I am a big fan and I can’t wait to come back and entertain my fans in Zimbabwe,” said Davido. The two met in Johannesburg two weeks ago and came up with a love song titled My Lilly and whose audio version was produced by FJ Tamuka from Military Touch Movement while the accompanying video was produced by South African based Nigerian producer, Godfather. The two beautiful women featured prominently on the video are South African models.

Speaking to H-Metro from Nairobi, Kenya where he is at the Coke Studio for a week, Jah Prayzah said he will be releasing the track anytime soon and definitely before his 2017 album provisionally set for September. Jah Prayzah came up with the script and got Davido to sing in shona. Getting one of the continent’s busiest musician to fly from London to Johannesburg for the collabo was overwhelming to Jah Prayzah. “We met in Johannesburg as I made my way from Coke Studio and he flew from London just to do the project. We did it in one day and finished around midnight. What is amazing is that Davido is very easy to work with despite being a sought-after artiste. The other thing is he is a man of his words, if he undertakes to do something he will give it his all and he is such a professional; who wants the best out of people involved. This explains why he is among the best on the continent and it is an honor to be able to do collaboration with Davido,” said Jah Prayzah.

H-Metro had an exclusive access to My Lilly video. Jah Prayzah’s latest collaboration is clear testimony that he is now after more global audience, if his video with Diamond Platinumz and Mafikizolo had not already cemented such intentions. A quick comparison with Davido’s hit songs IF and FALL shows Jah Prayzah has moved to a new high in his endeavor to wow a more international audience. The song’s base lie on its own shows Jah Prayzah is after the market that follows Davido’s music. But he goes a step further to achieve that purpose when he makes Davido sing in shona. For a name that big to sing. “Zvaunoita iwewe baby.. kana uineni… ruva rangu, darlie wangu….” Means attention will definitely come to Zimbabwe.

Meanwhile, it is Jah Prayzah who sings a lot in English to appeal to everyone outside Zimbabwe,

Sings Jah:

I love when you look at me baby,

And you call me daddy…

Let me love you,

Let me give you my all’

Jah choses to reach out to Africa with a few verses that appeal to the continent but without throwing his roots and strengths out through the window. Both Jah and Davido sing in shona to show the origins of the song. Both sing in English to communicate with the world but there is a lot more that will engage the international audience than the languages.

The professional models used in the video, the aura of sophistication and the million-dollar appeal of the scenes where the video was shot all spell a serious production that cannot match the best in the world any day.
