The group released the 12-track album titled Usizi, which features hit tracks Intandane and Qoma Ntombi that have become club bangers in South Africa.
Founder and lead singer Doit Nkomo said they were looking forward to bringing home what they “brewed” in South Africa.
He also promised fireworks to the Maskandi lovers and a special performance during their festive season tour.
“As we are in December, we are preparing something nice for the people back home. We have been getting calls from our fans saying they want more of our music. People should not spend the festive season feasting, but they should also stay put as we will be playing our music from every corner of the country,” he said.
“We even wish to get our album launched in Tsholotsho and Esigodini. This kind of music represents our culture.”
Nkomo said they toured Tsholotsho last year and a lot of people loved their music.
He said people in South Africa also loved their music a lot and kept them on their feet.
Nkomo said they had also realised significant growth in their fan base since the release of the album.
He said there had been responses from fans in countries such as the United Kingdom, Botswana and the United States.
