SUNGURA godfather Nicholas Zakaria says Jah Signal will go places if he remains level-headed and focused.
The Khiama Boys leader, who featured in Jah Signal’s song Usavashungurudza off his debut album Jaya, said it was a marvel working with the energetic chanter.

“If I get time, I will certainly sit down with him and give him life-changing advice,” he said.
Asked how he met Jah Signal, the goat-bearded singer said:
“The deal was brokered by Tinashe Mutarisi of Nash Paints who contacted me.
“I then met the youngster who invited me to the studio and we recorded straight away.
“I have no problems working with other artistes, including the young ones like Jah Prayzah.
“Prior to this project, I had worked with Shugeta and Roki and it appears he was also inspired.
“Back to Jah Signal, he is very talented and he needs to remain focused with his career.
“In music there are trials and he is bound to meet them along the way.”
