Jah Prayzah features Tanzanian music icon, Diamond Platinumz, on the video, which has since surpassed Oliver “Tuku” Mtukudzi’s Neria, which amassed over 750 000 views after being posted six years ago, while gospel musician Togarepi Chivaviro’s Ebenezer, posted a year ago, has just over 950 000 views.
Another hit video, Mukoko, by Tytan featuring Ammara Brown, posted five months ago, stood at 915 000 views as of yesterday.
While efforts to secure a comment from Jah Prayzah’s manager, Keen Mushapaidze, were fruitless yesterday, he had posted on Facebook a few days ago that they were grateful for the support from fans.
“Thank you a million times, at least there is a reason to smile after All,” he said. “A million thank yous for a million views.”
The video has received attention from MTV Base and is already on the Zambezi Magic Zim Top 10 charts.
With Jah Prayzah’s latest album, Mudhara Vachauya, having been received with mixed feelings, Watora Mari seems to have become his saving grace.
