Soul Jah Love was my favourite Zim Dancehall artist. So so immensely talented. The rhyme scheme, the cadence, the word play and the wit was bar none.
Watched him perform once and that was literally one of the best nights of my life.

I hope even us as a virtual community we give him a decent send off, like we did with Tuku or Ginimbi!
He is so deserving. Looking back now it really seemed he was leading a troubled life.
Remember when he went to seek prayers from one of the churches#RIPSoulJahLove

Zimbabwe Tourism Authority has also tweeted saying his music will never die and will continue bringing people together.
They say a true artist never dies, he stops giving live concerts. Your music did what music does best…it brought people together. You may be gone now but the melody of your music lingers on! Rest in peace Soul Jah love – Soul Mukasa.#ripsouljahlove#ZimDancehall pic.twitter.com/4RARm38Cu7
