New SoulJah Luv titled Rufu. Stream and download here…
DANCEHALL star Soul Jah Love was on Thursday morning involved in car accident near Gweru on his way to Victoria Falls where he was set to perform on Saturday.
A source within the Conquering Family said though the condition was not that bad, they were forced to cancel the performance which he was expected to share the stage with Kinna, Hwindi president and Dobba Don.
Jah Love’s handler Marshall Bimha, popularly known as Wadis, confirmed the accident but said he was not part of the travelling team.
“I talked to him and he is fine unlike what is being said on social media. People exaggerate things and it’s not good.
“I don’t have enough details concerning what really happened, but the accident occurred near Gweru and he was briefly admitted at Gweru (General) Hospital,” he said.
Changara, a confidante of the Hove Huru hit-maker told H-Metro that he is on his way to Gweru.
“Yes he was involved in an accident, we are now in Kadoma to get him back home. It’s sad that the show (Saturday) will possibly not go on.
“I will furnish you with more details when I get there, you can call me after an hour,” said Changara.
