SELF-CONFESSED Soul Jah Love copycat, Beezman B Chipoko ChaSauro, says he is now a victim of saboteurs during live shows.
The 23-year-old said sound engineers and DJs were messing up his slots wherever he performed.
Speaking through his manager, Seh Breeze, the chanter’s camp said it was riled by the continued sabotage.
“There are a lot of challenges we are facing, but it’s a phase that will come to pass.
“During big shows, we are never given a chance to showcase ourselves but it’s part of Zim dancehall where you will experience such sabotage.
“Sound engineers and some DJs have been distorting our sound during live shows, putting our lives at risk from ghetto youths, who normally throw missiles onto the stage.
“However, we are glad that we are overcoming these challenges,” said Seh Breeze.
Beezman’s art and voice resembles Jah Love’s style of delivery.
“Beezman never worked with Jah love when he was alive.
“He just started when Jah Love passed away, that’s when the Chipoko ChaSauro resurrected,” said the manager.
“Beezman was never part of the Conquering Family.
“Chibaba manifested on Chipoko, he was not a musician before.
“As we are working with Beezman, we are not targeting to fit into Chibaba’s shoes or comparing him to the late chanter.
“Our aim is to carry on with Chibaba’s legacy so that his name will not be forgotten.”
Beezman is currently working on his debut album titled, The Resurrection.
Chibaba, as the chanter was fondly known, succumbed to diabetes on February 16, last year, aged 31.
His tribute show will be held in August where an array of top chanters are set to grace the event.
