Probably not (if you are having to ask).

Have you identified any real limitation on the performance envelope of the zoom that would be solved by the prime?  If not, you've probably answered your own question.

(I had a similar situation myself where I had a prime that offered no real advantage over using a zoom at the same focal length.  I rarely used the prime and ended up selling it.  I don't miss it.)
