Beitbridge Socialite Stabbed At Jah Prayzah Show
A Beitbridge socialite Tinashe Hove was allegedly stabbed at musician Jah Prayzah’s show in the border town at the weekend.
Hove was stabbed after fans protested against Jah Prayzah whom they said played for only two hours. Although NewsDay could not obtain an official police comment, police sources and Jah Prayzah’s manager Keen Mushapaidze confirmed Hove’s death. Hove was a well-known socialite and cross-border dealer in Beitbridge. He was reportedly stabbed within the proximity of the venue.
A police officer in Beitbridge said Hove’s body was taken to Beitbridge Hospital after he was stabbed twice in the chest and had his details entered in police records as “Sudden Death”. Mushapaidze said they regretted the violence. He said they had been warned before the show. Said Mushapaidze:
We had been warned before the show that some people had threatened to attack us although we do not know why. The owners of the venue warned us, but seeing the crowd, Jah Prayzah said his followers came first and he would play. He played for longer than normal and when he bade the crowd farewell, trouble started. Band members sought refuge in a room at the venue, but some were hit by the missiles. We regret the violence.
