The musician is nominated for the prestigious African Entertainment Awards USA. Jah Prayzah is nominates against Nigerian superstar Tiwa Savage, but it seems getting votes from his fans here at home, will be an extreme sport if the latest tweets from disgruntled fans are anything to go by.

In a tweet Jah Prayzah pleaded with his fans to vote for him and said even the nomination itself is big.

"Team JP your support for the works is being recognized out there. We have a nomination for top entertainer at the @aeausa. The nomination in itself is a win. Go."

His tweet irked many fans who reminded him that he did not participate on the #ZimbabweanLivesMatter.
The #ZimbabweanLivesMatter recently gained momentum, amid anti-corruption protests and human rights abuses. Scores of people across the world have showed solidarity of protest including Cassper Nyovest, Pearl Thusi.

One fan told him that he won't vote for him because he did participate on the protest. A Twitter user by the handle @trevormoyo26 defended him and said everyone has a right to not participate.

"At the end of the day no1 across boarders will consider that but only "Zimboz are jealous of their own". If he wins we also have something to be proud of as Zimbabweans. As for politics every1 has a right not to participate or otherwise. Let us be progressive & let the past go."

@MuVezwa wrote "@jahprayzah is a musician. He is not obliged to have a say in political matters. How many singers have been victimized for saying things that are vaguely political. Jah anoimba ma song anotaura nezvinonetsa muupenyu. Thats a bigger contribution than a hashtag. I will vote for him.

Another tweep claimed Zimbabwean are full of hate highline that how can people hate their very own.

Jah Prayzah recently plagued back to his former high-school in a post he wrote "“I am glad we planted our first trees for the first million views on “Mukwasha” and it had to be at one of my former schools, Kambuzuma High 1."

The musician recently collaborated with SA musician Makhadzi who said she has  been his fan and we cannot wait for Makhadzi to drop the project.

"I was try to show people that I can do any music, I did a song with Moonchild and Team Mosha, for Moonchild and Mampintsha I wanted to show people that we are all Africans and we must unite especially when It comes to our diverse languages, and that we must be one," she adds.
