IN the past few years, we have seen superstar Jah Prayzah’s transition from his military gear to one of the most stylish and influential musicians in the local industry.

His fans have been left wondering whether he had ditched the military gear.

On Saturday, Jah Prayzah returned to his roots and donned the military wear at the OK Grand Challenge Race Day Concert.

It probably ends all the speculation that he has cut ties with his original looks.

He is one of the brand ambassadors allowed to wear the Zimbabwe National Army camouflage on his sets.

The lanky superstar, who was the closing act, provided the fitting soundtrack to seal the spectacular event.

He performed yesteryear hits, including Sungano, Hello Mama, Chinamira and Dzamutsana.

Jah Prayzah’s manager, Keen Mushapaidze, said the military gear was their way to show their sense of belonging.

“Just like any other brand, we had our moments of rebranding and that’s what you have been witnessing over the years.

“We also have our heritage and that is the traditional military wear that those who followed Jah Prayzah are accustomed to.

“Now, after going through the rebranding process, we feel we can restructure again, tine patinodzokera kumusha,” said Mushapaidze.

He said they chose the OK Grand Challenge to announce the return to their roots.

“The gear showed up at the OK Grand Challenge and it will show up again going forward,” he said.

This Saturday, Jah Prayzah is part of the Redefined music concert scheduled for the Harare International Conference Center, where he will share the stage with Winky D.

The OK Grand Challenge Race Day Concert, which included other household names such as rising songbird Feli Nandi, Nutty O and Dadza D, lived to its billing.

Not to be outdone was Feli Nandi whose drum beating skills captured the imagination of the audience.

DJ Fantan and Levels added a different and special feel to the event.
