Harare – Dancehall sensation Jah Signal launched his album titled Jaya Wednesday night at Club Sankai amid pomp and fanfare.
The launch was graced by executives and socialites alike who jostled to spoil the youthful musician with gifts.
He walked out of the club a richer man.
Club owner Genius ‘Ginimbi’ Kadungure bought the album for $1000 while a businessman with interests in mining Innocent Shito bought for $500 (hard cash) and also pledged 10 000 bricks to be used for the construction of Jah Signal’s residential stand.
The guest of honour was Zimbabwe Tourism Authority boss who also bought the album for $1000.
Kaseke spoke glowingly about Jah Signal and said he championed the rise of musical ambassadors.Other musicians like King Shaddy and Kina also performed in solidarity with their fellow artist.
Jah Signal thanked the patrons for the support and he revealed that he will be having a second leg of the launch in the high density suburb of Kuwadzana.
His manager Hillary Punchline Mutake said the reason why they decided to have two editions of the launch was to cater for their diverse fanbase.
“The reason why we decided to have two launches is to cater for our different fans and as you know Jah Signal hails from the ghetto we saw it befitting to have another launch in his roots,” said Mutake.
Event organiser Wanisayi Mahwindo Mutandwa paid tribute to the fans for their support.
The album carries 12 tracks and was produced by Marcelo and Oskid.
