uSanele Releases a New Project ‘uMvelase’ Featuring ASAP Shembe, Windows 2000, Manelisi and Others
Listen to uSanele's new project 'uMvelase.'
South African hip-hop artist
's recently released project is titled
. "This project," says the artist, "is in honor of my father and family, abakwa Mthembu; all my siblings, extended family and my roots in the heart of KZN, kwaNongoma. It is a calling—if you will—a completion of my journey and all things coming full circle."
He adds that the project is "a message to self (from higher self or spirit) to return home— ' Buyela ekhaya,' as the last track title suggests, or rather to remember who we are and where we come from."
The seven-track release features likeminded rappers and artists such as AyemaProbllem (from Stiff Pap ), ASAP Shembe , Windows 2000 , and Durban hip-hop legend Manelisi. The latter opens the project with a spoken-word piece fittingly titled "Inkondlo."
Production on the project is handled by a different producer for every song. Contributions behind the boards include Tsukudu , Rendition , August , Hipnaughtic Sean , Gee-Funk and MV . The sound on the project is varied as one would expect, but it's tied together by the leanings towards trap and modern hip-hop production.
uMvelase is a follow-up to Gangular, an EP the Boyz n Bucks and Spova Gang member released in January of 2019.
