Fans mourn the death of Jackson Musarurwa, Monya in Jah Prayzah’s Mkwasha video. There is a very good chance that at the time of his sad and tragic passing, Munyaradzi Musarurwa was living the way most people around the world are surviving right now, under the harsh and uncompromising weight of Covid-19. Musarurwa was affectionately known — stories, they all have one running theme, unity. Musarurwa, who was 52, died in a car accident along Joshua Mqabuko Nkomo Road in Harare on Sunday.
He can be best described as the end product of what happens when sports and entertainment meet. On one hand, he was an actor who featured in local dramas such as Cobra and is best remembered for featuring in Jah Prayzah’s music video “Mukwasha”. He was also a former chairperson of Highfield Gym (2000-2003), which is credited for churning out talents such as Collin Mushunje, who is an ex-Mr Zimbabwe Junior Men Bodybuilding champion.
Musarurwa was drafted into the Zimbabwe National Amateur Bodybuilding and Weightlifting Association as head of security and held that post from 2006 to 2008. He also served as a judge at various competitions, with the top being Musclemania Zimbabwe, and also competed at the inaugural Harare Strongman (2015).
