Jah Prayzah, Killer T Held At RGM Airport Over “Fake” Covid-19 Certificates After SA Show!

Popular contemporary musicians Jah Prayzah and Killer T, together with their band members, were held at the Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport on Monday for allegedly having fake Covid-19 certificates. 

The musicians, their backing vocalists and band members were coming from South Africa where they performed at cigarette tycoon Adam Molai’s birthday party.

The South African based tycoon’s 50th birthday party in Cape Town, was attended by many prominent people including members of the vanquished G40 faction. Some of the people who attended the all-white party include the late former president Robert Mugabe’s nephew Patrick Zhuwao. Molai and Zhuwao are related by marriage as the former is married to Mugabe’s niece.

Zhuwao has been in self-imposed exile in South Africa since his uncle was deposed by the military in November 2017. Molai’s party was also attended by former cabinet ministers Saviour Kasukuwere and Walter Mzembi.

The musicians were later released after being detained for some hours. A source told investigative publication The NewsHawks,

“They were held at the airport for hours by immigration and state agents claiming their Covid-19 testing certificates were not valid. However, it was clearly a political issue. They were being punished for performing at a party with G40 members; that’s very petty.”

When the publication reached out to Jah Prayzah’s camp, his manager Keen Mashapaidze professed ignorance on the matter.

“Last spoke to Jah Prayzah when he was on his way home. If there were any issues which I didn’t hear of, I’m sure they have been resolved already,” Mushapaidze said. Later he added: “He actually is at home now.”

Jah Prayzah and Killer T are not the first musicians to find themselves in a spot of bother at the airport over Covid-19 certificates. In June, ExQ and Nutty O landed themselves in hot water with the authorities after they allegedly tendered fake Covid-19 certificates at the Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport. 

The two were coming from South Africa when they allegedly committed the offence.
