Sizzla relocates to Zimbabwe; opens new studio

Reggae artiste Sizzla has thrown in the towel on Jamaica and relocated to Zimbabwe, this after being given a farm for performing at President Robert Mugabe's 86th birthday celebrations in February.

"I am here to stay, Zimbabwe is home. I have received tremendous welcome," Sizzla reportedly told the state-owned Sunday Mail weekly newspaper. According to, Sizzla's publicist Olimatta Taal confirmed that rather than pay the artiste in cash for performing at President Mugabe's birthday bash, Zanu-PF handed the Jamaican a farm located close to the town of Chegutu.

"Instead of giving him cash (for his performance) they gave him land. It is very honourable that he would take land instead of cash," Taal was quoted as saying.

Taal also stated that his Zimbabwe move had nothing to do with allegations that he was on the run from Jamaican authorities for gun crimes allegedly committed less than a month before President Mugabe's party.

Sizzla has reportedly also been granted a work permit and was working to consolidate business enterprises he has established locally to complement his singing profession. The singer said he plans to set up agro-industries on his farm to help local youths under his Jamaican social responsibility banner and has also made enquiries about investing in the local textile sector.

Sizzla has since set up a recording studio in the plush northern Harare suburb of Borrowdale where he resides and is working with local reggae groups such as Transit Crew to put together his debut album on Zimbabwean soil.
