Mlindo The Vocalist Collabs with Nathi in New Single ‘Imali’

Joburg ‘ballers on a budget’ have given them the blues.

Published

on

Mlindo The Vocalist on Friday made a big return to the music scene through the release of his brand new single ‘Imali’. This time the KZN native has partnered with Nathi.

Of the collab, Mlindo the Vocalist said: “ I am a big fan of Nathi and I am so honoured to have him on the song with me. I actually can’t really believe that I have a song with Nathi!“ said the ‘Egoli’ hit maker.

The song soulfully explores the age-old experience that countless South Africans have had to undertake of moving to Johannesburg to work and support their families back home. It also describes the pain of becoming successful and people only see you as a meal ticket.

“A lot of people know how it feels to be financially responsible for your family – black tax – and sometimes even your friends. You don’t even enjoy going out anymore because everyone looks to you when the bill comes,” said Mlindo.

Uzalo’s Mastermind Making a Comeback?

Sounded too good to be true!

Published

on

Mastermind Uzalo

 

Mzansi’s favourite gangster; Ntokozo ‘TK’ Dlamini, famously known for his role on SABC 1’s Uzalo, was rumoured to  be on his way back on the daily soapie. He, and dynamic partner-in-crime, Nay Maps were suggested to have reunited to bring back the mayhem that Mastermind and Mxolisi caused on screen.

The on-screen chemistry that Nay Maps and TK exude makes it a no-brainer to bring back the duo, after Uzalo’s ratings have been on the downward trajectory. TK teased his followers on Instagram, with a snap claiming that he merely bumped into his former co-conspirator.

The picture of the two sent more than 50 thousand fans into a frenzy, with nostalgic memories of their bromance on the show. It has now been confirmed by the show’s publicist that the two will not be returning to Uzalo.

A post shared by Ntokozo Dlamini 👑 (@tk_dlaminii)

The last time Ntokozo was on Uzalo was in early 2019, when he assisted his friend escape prison. Nay Maps is still contracted to The Fergusons production, The Queen; while TK’s last acting gig was on The River as Prosecutor Sihle Ngema.

Burna Boy’s fans will be thrilled to know that his 5th album lands on August 13th. Following on the success of his critically lauded African Giant, which earned the Nigerian Afrobeats hitmaker a Grammy nomination, Burna’s looming project will arrive in a world that is ready to give him his flowers.

In an interview with the New York Times, the Gum Body singer and rapper revealed a few details pertaining to the album.

Entitled Twice as Tall, the tape will find the 29-year-old collaborating with a bevy of America’s most sought after producers to deliver material that will premiere to an audience that is spread across the world.

Twice as Tall is executive produced by Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, who is responsible for some of the biggest careers such as Notorious B.I.G, Jennifer Lopez and amongst other best selling megastars, Mary J. Blige. From this alone one can glean that the album will be aiming at the perfecting balancing of his Afrofusion sound with elements that will take him much further on the Billboard charts.

And Diddy was happy to confirm in the interview that they are working on nothing less than a hit album. “A lot of times when an artist wants to be coached or pushed to maybe a greater level, that’s where I’ve come in,” he said. “He, as every artist, he wants his music to be heard by the world…”

Along with Diddy, Timbaland and Anderson Paak also boast production credits.

Burna Boy is adding the final touches to the album, which he said was completely guided the “spirits”. It was recorded mostly during the pandemic, the album will draw sonic influences Nigeria, South Africa, Jamaica and the US.

Guest appearances include Naughty by Nature, Sauti Sol and Senegalese legend Youssou N’Dour. Fans can expect a Zulu choir, electro influences, alternative R&B and organic instruments from West Africa and Zimbabwe.
