Baba Harare told The Herald that his former boss Jah Prayzah refused to appear in his “Guzuzu” video which was released on Monday because he does not make videos for songs that are already in the public domain.
Baba Harare featured Jah Prayzah on Guzuzu. Said Baba Harare:
When we were about to do the video, I approached Jah Prayzah with a request for him to feature on the video. I was surprised when he told me that he no longer does videos for songs that are already in the public domain. He said his current style is to have a song and its accompanying video going on the market at once. He said we were supposed to do the audio and video at the same time. He said it is too late to revisit a stale song to have a ‘resurrection’ video. I was disappointed because I wanted him to be part of the video. I had to do his lines on the video. I did not have an option since I wanted to push this song through a video like we did with ‘The Reason Why?’ that has become a hit.
