SOUTH Africa-based rapper and musician Mlue Jay has hailed Jeys Marabini's contribution to his soon-to-be -launched album — Less talk, more action.
The second studio album is scheduled for February 24 release. The production follows his debut release, Donatella in 2021.
Marabini's contribution is a skit which Mlue Jay said was a message of encouragement.
"Marabini is a legend in the game and a father to us young artistes. I am happy to have him on the album, he brings a word of encouragement. That gasses me up and I am hoping that it brings me more opportunities of working with the legend (Marabini) in the future," he said.
The album features Soko Matemai, Jeys Marabini, Lisa Mbali, Luminous, Kuda K and Indigo Saint.
The 11-track album was recorded and mixed at YeahWeLit Entertainment, run by Mlue Jay. Production was handled by Aboriginal Junkie from Russia, Mlue Jay, N1, Vampir3lif3style, Fired Up touch, Broskiboi, M.O, Radi and JB Sauced Up.
Born Mlungisi Moyo, the artiste hails from Magwegwe West suburb in Bulawayo. His debut album Donatella won the Best diaspora award at the Zim Hip hop awards.
The artiste was introduced to music in 2008 and started recording in 2010. He went on to study sound engineering in South Africa where he is now based.

The rapper named his debut album Donatella after his daughter. Donatella is an Italian name meaning “gift” or “gift of God”.
“Donatella is a gift from God. Donatella is my beautiful daughter whom I was blessed with by the Almighty and I want to share that gift of God with the rest of the world through music. She is the reason I do what I do every day. I hustle, I work hard in-between shifts, and also do music which is my love and passion,” explained Mlue Jay.
