Soul Jah Love incarnate vows to carry legacy on

By Patience Nyagato

A year after the demise of award winning Zim-dancehall chanter Soul Jah love, a passionate fan has turned himself into an incarnate of the late gifted musician.

With Soul Jah love gone, the ghetto did not just fold hands to see his legacy die, with 23-year-old self-proclaimed ghost of Chibaba, Lawrence Kaseke also known as Beezman ready to take over from where he left.

“I had never really imitated him while he was alive. I was just Beezman a budding artist but after his death I felt his legacy could not just die just like that,” said Beezman aka Chipoko chaSauro.

Although they never worked together while he was alive, Beezman’s art and voice resembles Soul Jah Love’s style and he also speaks with conviction that the late Jah Love lives in him.

“I met his family once at the NAMAs and they endorsed me and I think he also endorsed me. After listening to his songs I think he predicted my coming because he spoke about someone coming after him,” he said.

His recent collaborative act with Mukoma Panga titled Sadza Nemhiripiri has convinced fans that Soul Jah love has risen from the dead.

Beezman’s first public appearance was at this year’s National Arts and Merit Awards where he performed a rendition of the late Zim-dancehall chanter alongside Enzo Ishall and other artists.
