Kabomo Releases A Free Neo Soul Album Featuring Nothende, Khuli Chana, Siphokazi, Mpumi and Mapula Mahlo

The album is called 'All Things Red.'

South African veteran singer, rapper and writer, Kabomo recently released a free album titled All Things Red. The album features rapper Khuli Chana and singers Nothende, Siphokazi, Mpumi and Mapula Mahlo.


All Things Red is vintage Kabomo, as the artist returns to the mellow neo-soul he has been known for, for a long time through albums such as All Things Grey (2012), Memory Remains & Memory Remains Deluxe Edition (2014) and Sekusile (2015).

Last year, Kabomo released a double album titled Unapologetic, which consisted of two parts; one hip-hop and the other house.

On his latest album, as much he still raps on a few sons, the artist isn't trying to be many things at once. Considering the title, the album is obviously a sequel to All Things Grey. Old fans will definitely be impressed.

Head over to Kabomo's website to download All Things Red.
