ZIMBABWE – In a matter of hours, we bid farewell to the year 2015, making a crossover into the brand new 2016.
Like any other year, 2015 had its ups and downs but we remained firm and resolute as we anticipated a better 2016.
Our own celebrities, who have a strong influence in the public’s lives, have not been spared in this web and today, H-Metro carries some of their new year’s resolutions. Read on…
JAH PRAYZAH (MUSICIAN)
I think I have done almost everything expected of local artistes, music-wise.
After that dominance, I am looking forward to penetrating the international market for the good of my career.
I have since started applying for international festivals and networking with foreign artistes, promoters and festival organisers.
However, I hope I will meet some of the objectives I have set for myself in the second half of the year since the first quarter is usually slow on home soil.
I will only think of releasing a new album after the first quarter of 2016 but we won’t stop producing new songs at our studios.
On that note, I would like to thank fans for their loyalty; they have been on my side for the greater part of the year and I hope to continue giving them new stuff in 2016.

UNITY, Unity and more Unity among promoters is going to be my motto.
