The family of late Zim Dancehall star Soul Jah Love have shown their anger at artists and other people visiting the musician’s grave without informing them for permission. Much of their worry concerning this issue was the suspicion that some of the artists were going to the grave to perform rituals.
In recorded audio, Soul’s brother who chose not to reveal his identity warned people who have been going to the grave and taking pictures without their permission.
“Kune zvinhu zvinogara zvichinidentsa each and every time again, ndoshaya kuti ndozvituara sei… Kune vanhu vanogara kuyenda kumakuva ekwaMusaka pa mkoma vangu Sauro Musaka nepa Baba vangu Ephraim Musaka.
“Atizive kuti munenga mapiwa nani mvumo yekuenda ipapo. Munenge muchideyi chamurikutsvaga ikoko chii?” said Soul Jah Love’s brother.
He went on to question if these people were performing rituals at the grave.
“Ko kuti muuye muti Mkoma we want to pay respects to Soul toenda tese kuma kuva ikoko pane chakaipa here? Asi murikuda kushereketa here? Mukuda kubata midzi?
“Right now isu tikugadzirira manyaradzo asi vamwe venyu mukuita adheyi adheyi kumakuva ikoko. Vamwe venyu tikutokuwoyani pama picture kuti koo?” he said.
Soul Jah Love died in February 2021after succumbing to diabetes. He had graced the entertainment industry with his electric performances and captivating tunes.
The muso who was brave enough to open up about his struggles with drug and substance abuse had been sick for a few days but recovered and was in the studio working on a project when he collapsed and later died as soon as he was admitted at hospital, his friend told the media.
He was declared a provincial hero.
