Indeed experimenting makes for variety and engagement. And variety is kosher in the world today. Yes?
Mainstream artistes are looking deeper into their roots for inspiration and musical projection. They gotta make something appetizing and refreshing.
Cassper Nyovest, who recently addressed the “fake” humility of which he was accused days back, has announced a new collaboration with Maskandi artiste Shwi Nomtekhala.
He made the announcement in a tweet, highlighting the fact that all the songs he made with music legends have become classics. So collaborating with Shwi Nomtekhala is yet another way to a musical milestone.
Mufasa, who Ghanaian rapper Shatta Wale recently dedicated a mixtape to, took to Twitter to announce his collaboration with Shwi Nomtekhala and urged his fans to look forward to it.
“All the songs I made with legends are classics. From the legendary Mahotella queens , Ntate Tsepo Tshola and now the legendary Shwi Nomtekhala which we are premiering tomorrow on .@ukhozi_fm between 3-5 !!!! Tune in!!!!” his tweet reads.
Vusi Nova, from whom Maskandi artist Celazimnike Mtshali had asked for credit for the song “As’phelelanga,” isn’t deterred from looking down the Maskandi lane. The muso is looking forward to doing a Maskandi remix to his monster hit “As’phelelanga.”
The muso share a video of him and Maskandi artiste Igcokama Elisha (Mthandeni) jamming to a song, which has seen fan screaming in delight.
Other artiste who have caught the Maskandi fever are DJ Melon and Nesiliwe Sibiya. “I’m really excited for everything that is happening and I thank God. I am doing afro-kandi, which is a very unlikely fusion between afro-pop and maskandi,” Nesiliwe Sibiya had told TshisaLIVE.
At the rate the Maskandi fever is spreading, Mzansi might find itself contending with a Maskandi epidemic. Or what do you think? Share your thoughts with us in the comment section.
