After advertising his Intimate Acoustic night gig set to be held at The Elegant Ensemble on 2 November in Harare, multi-award winning musician Jah Prayzah has revealed at the show is now sold out.
The gig is an up close black tie event which will see ONLY 300 people accommodated to watch JP on stage. All the attendees have paid US$100 to enjoy intimacy with JP.
With the show sold out, JP is smiling all the way to the bank as he has pocketed US$30 000 on the 300 ticket sales only.
On his timeline, JP posted the good news and gave thanks to his loyal fans who have supported him immensely.
“Thank you all for the support. I cannot thank you enough and cannot wait for the magic that awaits us on Thursday. The event is officially sold out.
“There will be no ticket sales on the day of the event. All ticket holders will be informed of the official program today (Wednesday 1 November),” posted JP on Facebook.
Through the gig, JP has gone down history in the Zimbabwean music scene as he is the first new age artiste to stage a gig with a ticket worth US$100, after the late legendary muso Dr Oliver Tuku Mtukudzi.
His manager Keen Mushapaidze revealed that Jah Prayzah has been evolving for the past years, musically, on his personality and businesswise, and this particular gig was always on the cards.
“This kind of gig was always on the cards; we were just waiting for the right moment and it has come. Jah Prayzah has been developing as a brand for the past years and the numbers and the brands he has managed to attract are a testimony.
“He creates music for everyone but on this gig he will be doing an intimate and up close gig which will cater for the few who managed to pay for such an experience. It’s going to be a very different and unique gig by JP and those who have attended previous gigs and have a chance to grace this one will attest.
“I can’t explain how different it will be, but I can simply say fans will witness on their own because JP and the band worked tirelessly to make sure the event will be historic and always stay in people’s memories and hearts,” said Mushapaidze.
Another gig of such a kind is on the cards.
