Senior Sunday Mail Leisure reporter, Prince Mushawevato, has submitted a police report following threats of murder, social media attacks, and making love to angry supporters of Jah Prayzah.
The report was filed at the Braeside Police Station after an act of aggression on the clerk after posting social media by Jah Prayzah accused Mushawevato of unfairly targeting his work.
Jah Prayzah responded to a regular album review by Mushawevato where the clerk gave his opinion about the recently released album "Chitubu".
"It hurts that after spending all the sweat (sic) and sleepless nights on products that most of you have told me that you are very loving, there are still reporters who feel I owe a portion of my fruit, feel worthy to pull down . the same project and hopes to influence the whole world so I don't like my album, "read part of Jah Prayzah's response to the criticism, whipping his" cyber army "into insane.
On two occasions last Sunday, Mushawevato had to escape physical violence from self-confessed supporters of Jah Prayzah.
The first incident occurred at Braeside Shopping Center.
"I was almost hit by a blue Toyota Runx. At first I thought it was innocent but what they said afterwards scared me. To quote one of these people word by word, he said "eh wangu, I hope that wakanyora will be due toda kukusota size inokwana chaiyo. Ungatuke Jah iwe? & # 39; (I hope you have the last wish because we will deal with Who will insult Jah?), & # 39; & # 39; Said Mushawevato.
They left before the surprise of Mushawevato could recover and record the car registration number.
Then the abuse began to flow to his Twitter and Facebook accounts. It's not over yet.
Later that day when Mushawevato went around the usual weekend of art events around Harare, he met a rowdy group and a bouncer came to his rescue when they tried to attack him.
"The issue of taingoti pamwe majokes nurturing Prince anowanzouya pano. Izvo vapfanha ava vaizviti The JP vaida kumudya team. Takatozopindira zvaipa (We thought they were just joking because the Prince is usually here. We did not know that these children who called themselves JP Team actually wanted to hurt him. We had to intervene), "said the bouncer.
Mushawevato said he did not understand how Jah Prayzah could make such accusations against him and touting his fans.
"If you do a quick search of stories online now or go to the library, you will see that more than 90 percent of the stories we wrote about Jah Prayzah have raised and celebrated their careers. But he decided to choose several articles where we criticized, not his personal life which was colorful, but music. It can't be trusted.
"So like most Sunday Letters reporters and reporters, should we only sing the praises of Jah Prayzah? This shows that this person is obsessed with bootlicker. Less than 10 percent of the articles that have not stroked his ego have made him so angry that he has made my life and career in danger, "Mushawevato said last week.
The review of the album published last Sunday did not in any way attack the singer personally but stayed in his work.
"My relationship with Jah Prayzah is always professional. I haven't tried to be friends with him or his team. I have never asked for any help. Which makes me wonder why he would say & # 39; some reporters who feel I owe him some of my fruit & # 39 ;. Zimpapers are my fruit tree, I don't need other fruit, so I wonder where it came from, "Mushawevato added. Sunday Mail.
