ByLwansta’s New Must-Listen EP ‘SPIJØNGET Chapter One’ Sounds Like Happiness

ByLwansta sounds like he's found happiness in his new EP, and the music complements it.

SPIJØNGET Chapter One is ByLwansta's first project in three years. The South African rapper hasn't released a full body of work since 2016 when he dropped the EP Your Absolutely Right. But that's not to say he was out of sight. He's been performing with his band, appearing as a guest on a few songs, dropping a few singles, and most notably, he appeared on the COLORS SHOW in 2017.

SPIJØNGET Chapter One is the first of an ongoing series that will culminate in a 12-track album in coming months. But you'll get it in bits and pieces.
