This is the first time that the Tsviriyo hitmaker will share a live music platform with Masters in the City of Progress at a show to be held at the Midlands Hotel.

The show is being co-promoted by the hotel and the artistes.

Jean, daughter to the late musician and businessman, Joe Masters used to be a backing vocalist for the Masters band, but has now assumed the reigns since the success of their first album, Misi Haifanane.

Prayzah crafted his piece of history at the 13th edition of the Nama when he scooped four accolades in the outstanding male musician, outstanding song Tsviriyo, and outstanding album Tsviriyo, and the people’s choice award.

The two are expected to appeal to a cross-section of fans as reggae and jazz melodies would be belted out come Friday night.

Midlands Hotel general manager Rickie Dabvu said the ground had been set for two of Zimbabwe’s renowned artistes and urged fans not to miss the show.

“The combination of Jah Prayzah and sister Jean is exceptional and will bring Gweru to the dancing floor. Expect nothing, but fireworks in this not-afford-to-miss gig. We want to give fans value for their money,” Dabvu said.
