Multi-award winning musician, Jah Prayzah who launched his 11th studio album, “Gwara” on Sunday July 4, says he is ready to dazzle fans with a well-polished concert tomorrow evening.

Fans can catch all the action live on the Gateway Stream Music application.

“We are going to burn the Harare International Conference Centre stage tomorrow as I showcase my new songs. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, there will be no audience,” said Jah.

“The show will be free thanks to the companies that are supporting us through the placement of advertisements. So if you have not yet downloaded the application, do so today.”

Statistics from the managers of the application show that there were over 250,000 users who were streaming the album in less than 48 hours on the Gateway Stream Music application since its release.

Though there were some challenges as traffic volumes increased on Sunday, leading to the crashing of the application, the musician says the error has been rectified and all systems go tomorrow.

“I am confident in the Gateway Stream Music App. This is our very own local innovation which compares directly to YouTube. By using such platforms, we are now able to generate an income and survive in this tough Covid-19 era where live shows which are the main source of income for musicians are prohibited to curb the spread of the virus.”

Isheanesu Makambira, Gateway Stream Music project manager, said his team was honoured to be working with Jah Prayzah.

“As Gateway Stream Music we are honoured and humbled that Jah Prayzah chose to launch his album Gwara and celebrate his birthday (which was on the same day) on the Gateway Stream Music application. This is a sign that JP saw the potential reach, geographical spread, and ultimately the value in partnering with us,” he said.
