JAH Prayzah’s camp says they have learnt professionalism, resilience and focus from the late Oliver “Tuku” Mtukudzi.
The iconic singer died on January 23, 2019, aged 66.
He was declared a national hero.
As a music icon, Tuku was credited for mentoring a number of artists, who include Jah Prayzah, Suluman Chimbetu, Winky D, Tocky Vibes and Mbeu.
And, Jah Prayzah being one of the artists who received tips from Tuku, has now taken time to salute the legend.
On Unity Day’s eve, Jah Prayzah is set to perform at Pakare Paye in honour of the late music legend.
Speaking through his manager, Keen Mushapaidze, the camp said they were ready for the show.
“We are going to perform there on the 21st of December.
“Tuku was a legend and we really appreciate what he has done for us.
“He used to visit us at the studio and each time we would laugh together with him,” said Mushapaidze.
He added: “We urge fans to show up in numbers as we remember our legend on December 21.
“We will unveil the supporting acts in due course.”
In another interview, Tuku Music board chairperson and family friend, Tunga Simango, said they were honoured to celebrate the Unity Day commemorations with Jah Prayzah.
“We are excited to celebrate with Jah Prayzah because he is a great artist.
“Fans should expect a great show as we remember our icon Mtukudzi.
“We need to remember our icon as the great musician that he was,” he said.
Pakare Paye students will also take part as curtain raisers.
During his early days in the industry, he collaborated with Mtukudzi and produced the hit song, Cecilia.
After the death of Mtukudzi in 2019, Jah Prayzah released a tribute song titled Gamuchirai.
The song consoled fans to accept nature’s call and mourn the death of the hero.
Meanwhile, Freeman is set to perform at the same venue on Sunday.
He will be backed by Boss Pumacol and Bazooka during the family show.
