Listen to Busiswa’s New Album ‘Summer Life’ Featuring RudeBoyz, Dladla Mshunqisi, Uhuru And More

It's officially Dezemba this side!

South African house singer and poet Busiswa is back with her sophomore album, a year after her debut Highly Flavoured. Fittingly titled Summer Life, the new album spans 10 tracks, and, as you'd expect, will make it impossible for you to listen without shaking parts of your body.


Sonically, Summer Life leans towards gqom, and Busiswa dominates those instrumentals with her larger-than-life personality and presence. As we've grown to expect from Busiswa, she impresses with tongue-in-cheek humor, subtly empowers, and, more importantly, never fails to entertain. The likes of DJ Buckz, RudeBoyz, Zingah, Dladla Mshunqisi, Cruel Boyz, Uhuru, and a few more, make appearances in this 47-minute-long party.

While Highly Flavoured was released by Kalawa Jazzmee in collaboration with Universal Music, Summer Life is released independently under the artist's own company Busiswa Entertainment.

From the azonto era to the global spread of afrobeats, his contribution to African music as a whole cannot be overstated.

However, Killbeatz' influence doesn't stop at just music production. Behind the scenes, he's a complete industry player. The CEO of Ghanaian record label Legacy Life Entertainment, he's responsible for bringing star singer King Promise to the limelight.

Despite producing for the crème de la crème of the Ghanaian music industry as well as several international artists over the length of a decade, the highly-influential producer and instrumentalist never had a project of his own. Now he has set out to change that. In October 2020 Killbeatz dropped his debut EP, titled Love and Happiness.
