Magesh in comeback after 'accident' break
SGUBH' SAM is the ultimate track in his latest album and he reckons it will get people of all shapes, sizes, races and ages grooving.
TKZee star Tokollo Tshabalala a.k.a "Magesh" has released a new album titled Heist under Heist Entertainment - which he co-owns.
The kwaito maestro comes artistically unchallenged after all the drama of being charged with culpable homicide for allegedly killing two people in a car accident in Botswana.
He was acquitted in 2008.
Magesh said he was already making waves on national radio stations, and attributes his success to the brains behind the album.
"I have worked with a lot of people and all of them had the same intention, to produce a 'Magesh symbol' that reflects my taste in music but also the growth as an artist.
"In the album I featured Zwai Bala, Mandla Spikiri, Professor, Amanda and MaCasket. We had fun in the studio during the eight months of [the] project," said Magesh.
The title of the album is also a reflection of himself: He is Tokollo and he describes himself as the musical heist of its kind.
"I am not good at expressing love in person, but with music I can be at my most perfection. Its a heist for the love of music.
"People will confess to that as soon as they hear it," said Magesh.
He defines 'Sgub sam as the "rekindling track" that will remind his fans about the old stuff that they used to do as TKZee.
He explains that it was the first written song that paved the way for the rest of the album. He will be shooting a video for the song very soon.
Talking about the Botswana accident, Magesh said he was starting on a clean slate: "I had a 'monkey on my back' for seven full years. I could not leave Johannesburg, and having to see cops every three days of the week was not a joke."
Heist is the beginning of Tokollo's empire. It's a record label and a clothing line which will be launched soon.
With this album, Tokollo said he was back on the mad life of no-end interviews.
