Featuring; Londie London, Ice Beats Slide and more.
For his latest musical venture, Abidoza makes lemonade out of lemons. Titled Phola, the album depicts the healing of the soul from everything life has thrown at him. He enlists the help of his childhood heroes like Judith Sephuma, KB, Ladiaudiosoul, and others, to translate his most candid body of work.
Afro-pop sensations Fezeka Dlamini, Nomfundo Moh, and Naledi Aphiwe serenade the heart on their joint single – Uyangijabulisa. The upbeat ballad is a celebration of monogamous love as each singer supplicates their partner to a life of eternal joy.
South African businesswoman and reality star, Londie London steps back into her musical shoes via a new single titled – Themba. The song interpolates a local women’s protest anthem that speaks about being taken for granted. Themba was produced by DJ Maphorisa and Yumbs.
Since bursting on the scene in 2019, Mawhoo has been on a hot streak of hits; lending her vocals and pen to an impressive list of collaborations. The KwaZulu-Natal born star is finally ready to present her eagerly-awaited debut album – The Chosen. On the full-length release, the songstress draws inspiration from her love of traditional Zulu music while also expanding on her amapiano catalogue which has gained her an army of fans.
The Chosen scheduled to officially drop on 15 September 2023.
Producer extraordinaire Mdoovar presents his latest labour of love Isithembiso. The title derives from the isiZulu word meaning a promise. Thus, the title embodies only about the promises he made to his loved ones but also a contract with himself; it is a monument to his steadfast tenacity and willpower.
Isithembiso consists of 14 tracks and is due out on 18 August 2023.
Musical forces Ice Beats Slide and Sbuda Meleather merge their creative minds for a collaborative piece called Hakuna Matata. The 9-track album epitomise their hard-knocking brand of amapiano.
Hakuna Matata is due out on 8 September 2023.
Sfarzo Rtee continues the House of Sjiga series. The second instalment of the anthology is more expansive than its predecessor by drawing influences not just from amapiano but afro-tech too. House of Sjiga II features collaborations with Kelvin Momo, Mashudu and more.
The seven track project is slated for 25 August 2023.
