Jah Prayzah has rubbished criticism that he has a schoolgirl fetish after he featured another dancing schoolgirl in his latest video, Sendekera.
Jah Prayzah said the script for Sendekera was different from Eriza even though there was a similarity in featuring a “schoolgirl”.“I think those people (critics) missed the humour there and instead focused on what they thought was my obsession with schoolgirls.
If it was about a schoolgirl I would have picked someone young but instead we had Nhlanhla (Mafikizolo half), who is 38, putting on the school uniform and it was just a 10 second clip.
SENDEKERA-JAH-PRAYZAH“That is completely different from what Eriza was about. “ There were some observations that Jah Prayzah is abandoning his trademark “deep lyrics” and mbira instrument in pursuit of bubblegum music, which might cost him the mature followers.
The musician however, says he is treating singles differently from albums as he tries to reach out to all markets with Sendekera targeting an international audience.
“With these singles I am appealing to an international audience and influenced by the direction world music is taking where people are after enjoying the beat and the message is not prioritised given that it reaches an international audience that will not even understand the language.
“I will continue with my deep lyrics and mbira instrument for the album, which is largely for the Zimbabwean audience. Already I am working on my next album and it will retain all that people know about me from previous albums. “
Sendekera will not be on his upcoming album. The video has been viewed 160 000 times since yesterday’s release.
