Grateful Theo has a 'Sunday chillas' album
Theo Kgosinkwe, of Mafikizolo fame, who is busy carving a reputation as a solo artist, says the album will do justice to his individual Afro-pop style beats
THEO Kgosinkwe has promised his fans that his latest release, Grateful, will be a 'Sunday chillas album'.
Kgosinkwe, of Mafikizolo fame, who is busy carving a reputation as a solo artist, says the album will do justice to his individual Afro-pop style beats.
For those who might not readily remember him, Kgosinkwe attained fame with Mafikizolo - which also comprised Nhlanhla Nciza and the late Tebogo Madingoane, who was shot dead in Soweto in an apparent road rage incident in 2004.
Without giving anything away, in Grateful Kgosinkwe features jazz legend Hugh Masekela in the romantic Ongimthandayo.
Kgosinkwe shows his versatility by featuring Afrikaans music personality Kurt Darren (of Meisie Meisie fame) in another romantic piece, Lief Vir Jou.
"There are three other tracks in the album that I feel are worth mentioning: Show Me, Ngiyakhumbula and Thinking About You.
"Show Me will certainly get the fleet-footed on the dance-floor, while Thinking About You is a remix and features the talented Zonke and club DJ Kent.
"Thinking About You is going to have its own music video," he boasted.
Tomorrow Kgosinkwe shares the stage with MaxHoba of Hobacity at Silverstar Casino City.
"I won't prepare anything specific for the Youth Day show. I'll just make sure that everybody who attends will have a great time. I promise that those who attend will not wish to be anywhere else," he says.
"My music has always catered for both the young and old."
On Mafikizolo, Kgosinkwe says: "Mafikizolo is a national asset. We are already in the studio brewing something that is sure to get our fans dancing to 1950s marimba-styled and marabi-veined grooves once again.
"We want to come back with a dignified album that will display maturity and class while maintaining our high standards."
