The album is titled Ahwe (The Evolution), which means, according to him “the new era has arisen with a new style and pattern”. The album is likely to have a minimum of 10 tracks.
The young musician is working with different producers.
“So far, I am working with DJ Oskid, Blackboi The Don, Pablo, Chiweda and Young DLC [one working under Sony Africa Records]. I am yet to work with DJ Tamuka (Military Touch Movement),” he said.
“This will also help me bring different hands to produce different sounds and completion to the project.
“Working with big and recommended producers like Oskid and DJ Tamuka is a dream turning into reality as it makes me realise that l am on the same level with the other big artistes here in Zimbabwe and for me this is a game changer.”
He says the future is now and is not going back.
“I am fascinated to work with someone I once worked with when I was still in Gweru at high school, Oskid, and DJ Tamuka; I used to look up to them as my elders even though I had to relocate to Masvingo where I became of the best musicians. I managed to scoop four misic awards the same night at the Masvingo Province Music Awards early last year in April,” he said.
He is looking forward to doing collaborations with different artistes for his album.
“I am looking forward to doing some collabos with different genres so as to tackle all angles to fuse into hip-hop, dancehall and R‘n’B to intertwin with my genre Afro-pop,” said the Hes Kani Tindoe hitmaker.
The titles of the songs have not yet been released as some of the songs are yet to be recorded.
“It is not necessary to name an undone song because you might give it a title that is not catchy, but the people close to you and your producer can help you come up with a better title for the track,” he said.
The song Hes Kani Tindoe, which is the Shona version of Despacito refix, now has a video and has gone viral on Youtube. The video is found on his account YouTube VeVo. He encouraged his fans to subscribe to his account VeVo ALCHEMYTHABIGDOG to receive his musical stuff.
