VIDEO ALERT: Jah Prayzah Ft. Diamond Platnumz – Watora Mari

“Watora Mari” is the musical first fruit from Zimbabwe artist Jah Prayzah’s latest project “Mdhara Vachauya”. The towering, slender and handsome maestro launched the album on Friday 12 August and simultaneously released the musical video for the single Watora Mari, featuring the world-acclaimed East African star Diamond Platnumz. Diamond’s appearance did not only give the song and video an international feel, but also a swagga-rific edge. The sound, it’s quality and the video, the models and dancers, the attires etc, it’s all wow.

The release of this material is arguably Prayzah’s biggest career highlight. However, maybe some of his fans will agree, the song definitely doesn’t reflect on the artist some of us know or have heard of as he sounds more of a passing guest on one of Diamond’s regular mainstream releases and not vice-versa. He was pretty much drowned by the dominant Tanzanian and his style was a bit more skewed. Diamond even borrowed and almost flawlessly repeated a part of the Shona-based chorus. Credit still needs to go to Prayzah for the effort he made in engaged an icon like Diamond and perhaps this experience will help him build up an even stronger international musical career.  Putting Zimbabwe on the map and representing in an African market that is dominated by East and West Africa, as far as Afrobeats are concerned.

We look forward to sampling the Mdhara Vachauya album. In the meantime, watch the video for Watora Mari below;
