Saturday 29 September was seen as a day that would prove who is king of crowd pulling between Mbare born chanters Soul Jah Love and Seh Calaz.

The two announced the same date for their albums launch events. Seh Calaz was dropping his ‘Ndaqatumwa‘ album at Shawasha grounds in Mbare with a free event titled Sadaka part 2, while his rival Soul Jah Love was also dropping his album ‘Naka Dhula Dhaka‘, an album titled after a term he coined as a short for ‘Zvinonaka zvinodhura, zvinodhaka‘ shona term in lose meaning nice things are expensive and can get you high. Some have went on to say it is a form of substance that gets you high and is expensive. His album was launched at Takashinga Sports Club in Highfields.

The crown for crowd pulling went to the King of Disses, Boss Yala as Seh Calaz is affectionately known by his fans. However his show was made free of entrance compared to Soul Jah Love’s which costed $5 for a general admission.

Soul Jah Love’s event was also marred with flaws which became clear when he failed to appear on time to take his set leaving fans frustrated. This resulted in some rowdy characters throwing cans at some youngsters performing.

Chibaba as Soul Jah Love is also known later appeared to take the stage aroung 2am. Chanting a few of his old songs before dropping some tunes from his new album.

Songs from his new album ‘Naka Dhula Dhaka’ were not received well by some of his fan base who were seen leaving the crowd as he performed his new tracks.

Seh Calaz on the other side was having a blast performing some of his old hits while also taking a jab at Soul Jah Love. He also complained about some of his haters trying to sabotage his event by alerting officials of the cholera hazard associated with hosting such an event.

So at the end of the day Seh Calaz managed to pull a crowd compared to Soul Jah Love but more because it was free than anything. It still remains to be seen who the actual crowd puller is when they host events at par with the other!

DANCEHALL chanter Ninja Lipsy’s brand new song titled Pfee has attracted a lot of controversy, which the musician has, however, dismissed saying while the title was open to various interpretations, it was not political.

Pfee, which is a Shona ideophone that describes sudden action, was popularised as a Zanu PF slogan — ED pfee — ahead of the July 30 harmonised elections.

The song has attracted mixed reactions from listeners, with others saying it had political connotations, while others felt it carried sexual innuendo.

“This song has many meanings. It’s more of social issues than political issues like many have described it. It’s all for the listener to decode it in their own preferred manner, but it’s not political,” she said.

“I talk about a driver who has to be cautious on the road to avoid accidents. Others also describe the song in a sexual manner but, well, it is for the listeners to give meaning to the song.”

Produced by DJ Tamuka of Military Touch Movement, the song becomes the pair’s first project without the involvement of other artistes.

“We have worked together with Tamuka as a collective with other artistes, but this was the first time we worked together without anyone else. The song was his idea. He just shared the concept with me when we were in the studio. I sampled the beat, wrote the lyrics and recorded in one day,” she said.

Ghanaian artiste, Gemini has described Shatta Wale as a fake artiste and a hypocrite, who says pretends to want unity among Ghanaian musicians but always does the opposite always.

Gemini tweeted that, Shatta Wale would always be preaching about unity and the ‘support your own’ mantra but would not support any artiste like he always says. Recounting an experience, Gemini revealed how Shatta Wale refused to show up for the video shoot for his song ‘Dromo’ which also had EL on it.

Gemini’s tweet comes after Shatta Wale blasted Sarkodie in a radio interview on Hitz Fm, that Sarkodie never shot a music video for their ‘Megye Wo Girl’ banger even when he (Wale) had made persistent calls on Sarkodie several times, but was quick to go shoot one when he featured a Nigerian artiste on his song.

Shatta Wale had created an impression that, Sarkodie loves Nigerians more than his own and it even resulted in a Twitter ‘war’ as his fans attacked him on the network

Now Gemini has also confessed how a hypocrite Shatta Wale is and he tweeted; ” I agree. @shattawalegh would be all vocal about ‘unity’ amongst artistes but would turn around and do a song with you but not show up for the video shoot like he did for my song “DROMO” with him and EL. Many others I know of as well. That’s a FAKE if you asked me. He-too-FAKE!!”
