The producer features several upcoming artists on the album, giving music lovers a chance to experience new voices. His first single release from the album is a collaboration with vocalist Nokwazi titled Ebabayo. He had this to say;
“Nokwazi adds so much colour to the music. The song wasn’t originally meant to be as vibey. If you listen to the instrumentation sonically, she comes in and adds so much energy to the song. That’s exactly how I imagined it to be,” said the DJ, whose real name is Kabelo Motsamai.
