Prince Kaybee's new compilation album 'Project Hope' highlights unheard women voices in South African music.
Apart from being a collection of fresh tunes from nine unheard women voices in music, Prince Kaybee's latest release, Project Hope (Season 1), exists to address a problem that has existed for years.
"There's a very, very big gap we need to cover. The project is about women, we're trying to get them in there as much as possible so that we have level ground in the music industry," says the accomplished house deejay and producer, speaking during the launch of Project Hope in a cosy venue in the north-side of Joburg.
On the night, every artist who appears on Project Hope is given a chance to perform their song during the event. The songs vary from R&B to Afro-house and, of course, amapiano. Artists such as Thembi Q, RedRo8se, Thalitha, Rinay and Proud among others take to the stage for a showcase of their individual songs which appear on Project Hope.
