FAST rising dancehall chanter, Jah Signal, says he is still single and searching for love.
Born Nicodemus Mutize, the “Tirarira” hit-maker bared his soul in a wide ranging interview with this publication.
The 22-year-old said he is still building his career and wants the right lady to settle with.
On his career, Jah Signal said he will be launching his 10-track album titled “Apa Hauna Cash”, named after prominent businessman Dr Philip Chiyangwa’s new clothing line.
“I am seriously looking for the right woman to marry because all along I have met wrong people.
“I no longer want to be a bachelor anymore, I want to be a family man now, ndakudawo kaTirarira (child), and I haven’t met marriage material,” he said.
Despite having released a new single “Chitikidhima”, which talks about an ugly woman with true love, Jah Signal said what matters most is true love.
“Chakakosha rudo, kana chitikidhima ndochida because real love is what matters.
“Women think Jah Signal akatotenga ndege but am still trying to build my profile, gauro harisati ratombovepo, tichiri kuritsvaga gauro,” he said.
The chanter said he was inspired by Chiyangwa as he launches his new album.
“Yes, month end we want big things because people have accepted my music and I am looking forward to continue giving our fans more music.
“I was inspired by Philip Chiyangwa to launch this album named after his clothing line Apa Hauna cash.”
His manager Phillip ‘Sir Fordgaster’ Madziwa said everything was in place for the album launch.
“The inspiration of this new album is coming from Bla Phidza (Philip Chiyangwa) whose clothing line (Apa Hauna Cash) is now hit with fashion enthusiasts.
“We are just tackling issues to do with the society where people look down up others yet they don’t have cash.
“So we are encouraging the society to appreciate and emulate each other for development.
“People are enjoying our music and we are looking forward to launch the album at a bigger venue, if all goes well, we want to launch somewhere where we can accommodate many people.”
Sir Fordgaster also said they are working on a video of “Katsvodi” and he was pleased with the progress made so far.
“We are working on videos and Jah Signal now appeals to international fans and promoters.
“Jah’s song Rure Rure is also dong well on South African radio stations while some songs are on Buddie Beats and we have also lined up collaborations with international artistes.”
Jah Signal has however expressed dismay over bogus promoters and managers who include them in show posters without their consent.
“We are concerned about bogus promoters who claim to be working with us and put posters without our knowledge.
“It has tarnished our reputation as professionals since people are saying we don’t attend shows yet they will be fake.”
The lyrically-gifted Jah Signal burst on the musical landscape in 2011 with the single “Honour Ladies”, which became a favourite with many.
Since then, he has never looked back as he now commands a huge following.
He has a number of collaborations with the likes of Tocky Vibes and Boom Beto.
Some of his compositions “Mukwasha Mboko”, “Yekedero”, “Sig Aenda”, “Dhora”, “Fashion Police”, “Ebube” and “Wakavingei”, which have propelled him to acclaim.
