Man Soul Jah Back in Studio
Alfred Tembo - Daily News

Man Soul Jah back in the studio

Gweru-based reggae icon Man Soul Jah says he will end his eight-year recording break by releasing a 16-track reggae album in a few months’ time.

The veteran reggae artiste, whose real name is Joseph Tatenda Nhara, told the Daily News he has a duty to release an album that reflects his Rastafarian beliefs.

“There are lots of things coming, the first being a yet-to-be-titled album I am currently putting together,” said Man Soul Jah.

“I want to keep the fire burning, in respect of the prophetic words in the Bible that challenge mankind to live in harmony with nature and to observe righteousness.”

Man Soul Jah is determined to release an album that embodies reggae purity.

“Reggae music has a soul, purpose and mission. Unfortunately, the devil is making attempts to drag it back through commercialisation and consumerism, which are both a result of capitalism.

He added, “Reggae has a strong biblical foundation. Read Psalms 150, and its message is truthful to the masses and oppressed.”

The Mr Government Man hit-maker has no kind words for modern reggae dancehall.

“The dancehall thing coming up these days promotes violence, with slack lyrics on drug abuse and infused with praise of harlotry.”

Man Soul Jah, who is backed by People Against Cruel Existence (Pace), a band he formed in 1989, has five albums under his belt.

His discography includes Dreams of A Freedom Fighter (1993), Soul Contact (1995), Mr Government Man (2000), I Am Still Standing (2006) and Smile Zimbabwe (2002).

Man Soul Jah is no stranger to the big stage.

He was a supporting act when Third World, UB40, Aswad, Shabba Ranks and Freddie McGregor toured Zimbabwe.
