relation between sharpness and prime/zoom lens

Could someone please elaborate a bit on the connection (if there is one) between sharpness and the use of a prime lens as opposed to a zoom lens, especially at wide angles in landscape shots?

For example, given that all else is equal, will a 24mm. prime give me the same sharpness and detail in a scenic shot as a 24-150mm. lens? Thanks!
