South Africa based rapper, Jimmie Maleta, has saluted Jah Prayzah for his latest offering, “Hokoyo” also urged Zimbabweans to rally behind and support their own.
Maleta popular for the hit song “No one but you” said supporting our own artistes is beneficial to boosting artistes’brands and music locally and on the continent.
“If we can’t support our own then who is going to support them.
” You can’t expect the rest of the continent to support ours and yet we don’t support them.
“It has to start with us, let’s support our own.
” At the moment Jah Prayzah has jus released his new album, let’s support him and stop giving negative criticism.
“If we intend to build him let it be positive.
“All the brother needs is our support and as a fellow artiste I am rallying behind him and very much in support of his new album,” he said.
“A lot of times I see a lot of Zimbabweans cry foul when one of ours is not on the poster for any major African concert, it’s because we lack support.
” Let’s cheer our own that’s where it all starts and the doors to such event begin to open.”
Maleta said he has new music coming soon and that hip hop heads should expect some real good music.
