Kutongwa Kwaro hitmaker Mukudzei Mukombe (Jah prayzah) has claimed that there is systematic plot by the Entertainment desk of the state owned Sunday Mail to negatively critic all his music projects.

In an emotional Facebook post on Sunday Jah Prayzah said, "I have nothing against The Sunday Mail, however, I do feel I have been a victim of unfair reporting and journalism from the Entertainment Section of the publication on numerous occasions.

"This has happened mostly after every album I released. Last year if you all remember very well, an open letter to Jah Prayzah was drafted. I am hinted that a series of stories has been lined up to fight me and all I do, but all I can do now is wait, just like everyone else, chandinoziva ndechekuti denga rina mambo.

"I appreciate criticism so much, it forms a major part in the building of an artist, only when its constructive criticism. When it becomes a habit then there is no building exercise intended. It pains that after putting in all sweat and sleepless nights for a product that most of you have told me you love so dearly, still some journalist who feels I owe him a part of my fruits, finds it worthwhile to pull down the same project and hopes to influence the entire world against liking my album."

Mukombe praised the advent of social media saying at least artists can use it to express themselves without any hindrance or  gagging from anyone.

"If there is one thing I am thankful for, is Social Media. As artists we now have a mouthpiece of our own, though still somewhat smaller than the press, at least now we can air our views, projects and get feedback from you. I am so delighted with the feedback you have given the Chitubu album, with Dzamutsana getting massive hits in its first week of release, breaking all forms of previous records I have personally set before.

"One lesson I have learnt is that your work speaks for you, that is why I have never responded to any of the articles that have come out in the past, but time comes when you say enough. I am done being a punching bag and will stand for what I believe in."

Mukombe's song Dzamutsana which was posted on November 3 has passed the 500 000 mark in terms of views on Youtube.
