Blessed Katiyo in Johannesburg
JAH Prayzah underlined why he is one of the most sought-after artists after impressing the audience with his top-notch performance at the Johannesburg Family BBQ hosted by Joburguru Entertainment.
Although the event started late, the select crowd of just under 1 000 enjoyed local DJs, including DJ Irie Dread, Inno Bee, and Scorebeats.
Jah Prayzah’s two-and-a-half-hour set, including hit songs such as Dangerous and Chiremerera, kept the fans on their feet all night long.
Award-winning MC Rico Myers was at his usual best as he hyped up the crowd.
The fans went into a frenzy when Jah Prayzay strode onto the stage, opening his act with Chengetedza at around 10.30pm.
He ended his act on an emotional note when he played Goto that lasted about 10 minutes.
Many were left in awe as he appeared to have gone into a trance.
As he left the stage, he got wild applause as he indeed gave the fans value for their money.
Many left the venue soon after his performance, but those that remained were further treated to some good music by Keen Marshall and the Black White Band.
The group has been a constant feature at most high-profile gigs and they did not disappoint.
They played mainly cover tracks of artists such as the late Oliver Mtukudzi, Simon Chimbetu and a number of urban grooves tracks.
They played into the wee hours of the morning and left the fans clamouring for more.
Despite some flaws of the organisers, including a 30-minute blackout, the event left the audience asking for more.
