Two top musicians Jah Prayzah and Suluman Chimbetu unite for a massive gig to confirm their solid relationship at Private Lounge on February 25.

Dubbed “Friends Forever”, the gig seeks to dismiss rumour that the two were rivals.

Organiser of the event Joe Mentro said the gig was meant to tell the nation that the two musicians were good friends who always unite on and off stage.

“They are good friends who always consult each other on and off stage. This must be a lesson to musicians to avoid unnecessary fights,” he said.

He said musicians should take a leaf from the two singers whose friendship has yielded good results.

“Their friendship has earned them several good results and musicians must emulate what they do and put aside differences,” he said.

The two have a duet, “Sean Timba”, that was released in 2012 and stole the hearts of many music lovers.

At their joint shows they usually play a rendition of Simon Chimbetu’s “Dendera Ndizarurirewo” with Jah Prayzah’s midas touch bringing an exciting melody to the song.

After the announcement of the upcoming gig, fans took the social media to hail the musicians for their love to unite.

Jive Zimbabwe director Benjamin Nyandoro who is on a campaign dubbed “Celebrate local” said it was good that to musicians unite for gigs.

“It is a sign of unity and with such shows we can safely celebrate local,” he said.

Unity among artistes is vital to the development of the arts industry in the country.

Art is a discipline that brings regional and international integration as well as economic development.
