Gospel musician Mambo Dhuterere, born Darlington Mutseta, has been caught maligning Jah Prayzah alleging he uses black magic.
Leaked audios of the St John Apostolic Church of the Whole World pastor disparaging the ‘Kutonga Kwaro’ hitmaker have flooded social media platforms.
The audios were allegedly leaked by Mambo Dhuterere’s former manager, Marvelous Munemo after the two had a fallout over US$500.
Munemo, who managed Mambo Dhuterere in 2019, claimed that he took care of all of the musician’s music production and distribution costs before he rose to fame.
He said the two had agreed that Munemo would be later hired as the permanent manager when Mambo Dhuterere was firmly established in the industry.
Mambo Dhuterere later reneged on the promise, hiring a new manager and snubbing Munemo.
Munemo also claimed that Mambo Dhuterere was warned by his church elders against collaborating with Jah Prayzah who allegedly uses juju to boost his music career. Said Munemo:
Mambo Dhuterere ndopakazoti haamboite collabo naye because akaaudzwa na Bishop vake kuti anoshandisa mushonga hanzi akangoimba naye iye achapera mbiri.
In leaked audio, Mambo Dhuterere claimed Jah Prayzah was getting paid for only exclaiming ‘haah ’ in his tracks. He said:
Ita shamwari mari irikikuitwa nemrasta kaah yakandibata bata shamwari kungoimba kungoshama kuti haaaah zvinhu zvisina kana nebasa rese zvatinoita 24/7 torova pungwe tichiimba ku church mahara.
Tikanyatso mhanya chinhu ichi togona kutoita mari, unoziva kuti mface uya show yaarikunoita kuSouth Africa akabhadharwa R150 000 tikanyatso shanda togona kuto ita ma followers anenge aJah kana kuto darika nekuti isu tinotora vese veku mabhawa nekuma church.
Meanwhile, a few hours before the audio leaks, Mambo Dhuterere had lauded Jah Prayzah on Facebook, saying he had helped greatly when he was still a nobody. He wrote on 10 May:
The way yandaibatwa ne this guy ndisati ndava ne mbiri I haven’t yet meet any public figure ati andibata that way ndatova ne mbiri, even inini am failing kubata vanhu the way he did to me nomatter how I try… being new in industry Jah Prayzah na Mathias Mhere guided me at most. One day I will tell you all.
Now kana ndavakuda kukura msoro I just think kumashure kuti kana Jah ne mbiri iya aindiitira izvi so what am I doing, but take note, ini wacho ndaiudzika cos ndaiteerera manje rimwe timu anotoita sekunge ndiye arikuda kukubatsira 😂.. Plot na Angie keep on helping we do appreciate.
Responding to the post by Mambo Dhuterere the following day, Jah Prayzah said he was at a loss for words. He commented:
Mambo Dhuterere ndapererwa nemashoko. Thank you my brother, when you lend a hand it’s best to do it without expecting a thank you in return but when you do get it, it’s more special than anything in the world.
Kusvikawo pandiri ndakabatsirwa nevakawanda and I told myself I will do all I can to help others when I can. You have done many amazing works over the years and have built a solid brand for yourself.
Keep going my brother, I know Mwari vacharamba vachikurangarirai because nesu tave kuwedzera kumurumbidza kubudikidza nemashoko enyu.
