Tshego Teams Up With King Monada in His First Single Under Universal Music Africa 'No Ties'

Listen to Tshego's new single featuring King Monada.

South African R&B/hip-hop artist Tshego's new song features house sensation King Monada. Titled "No Ties," the single is a catchy R&B tune that that sees the two artists exchange vocals over a smooth instrumental that's summoning the summer with breezy pads and rich instrumentation.


"I wrote and produced 'No Ties' and thought of who I could collaborate with that people wouldn't expect," says Tshego in a press release distributed by Universal Music Africa. "King Monada came to mind, and he felt like the perfect fit. I had heard 'Malwedhe,' which is a dope track. I knew I had to work with him. I dropped him a DM, and we started talking. He chose 'No Ties' from the two songs I shared with him. I then sent it to Alie Keys to put his things on and this is the outcome. Monada exceeded my expectations on this one, I am very happy. 'No Ties' is still the old Tshego you love, I have just been through a lot and grown a lot."

"No Ties" is the first song Tshego has released singe joining Universal Music Africa, which was announced earlier this week. The song is a single from the artist's upcoming solo debut album Pink Panther, which the artist has been promising fans for the last four years.

Prior to joining Universal, Tshego was signed to Cassper Nyovest's indie label Family Tree. Earlier this year, Nyovest signed to Universal Music Africa himself, giving Family Tree a choice to either join him or remain fully independent.

In 2019, the government of Ghana made a global splash with its Year of Return initiative – the campaign sought to encourage the African diaspora to return home to the continent, specifically to Ghana.

Linked to the 400th year commemoration of the first recorded landing of slaves in the United States, it became a launchpad for the Ghanaian government to convince Black people around the world to permanently settle in the West African country.

Aisha Asamany, a corporate management consultant for high-profile UK financial institutions turned self-taught luxury jewelry designer was one of many who heeded the call, trading in the corporate life for a spiritual and an entrepreneurial journey – one of joy, appreciation, and representation in her fatherland.
