Zimbabweans on Twitter show Jah Prayzah the middle finger
"Team JP your support for the works is being recognized out there. We have a nomination fo the top entertainer at the @aeausa. The nomination in itself is a win. Go and vote on their website http://aeausa.net." Jah had written on Twitter.
Dear World. This so called artist @jahprayzah supports tyranny in his home country Zimbabwe through his music. I am shocked to see him nominated here. I am available in my personal capacity to furnish you with further reasons for not voting him. Thank you, Mazvita, Ngiyabonga.— Munya Tawana (@TawanaMunya) October 8, 2020
Zimbabweans responded saying they are voting for his competitor Burna Boy because he had supported the #ZimbabweanLivesMatter movement that saw prominent celebrities from Zimbabwe and the world tweeting in solidarity with Zimbabwe.

Jah Prayzah was conspicuous with his silence despite calls by his fans to join the rest of the celebrities.
