Nde’feyo Entertainment R&B/Afro-pop artist Bucci will be releasing a mixtape called“Worth the Wait” towards the end of February.
Excitement is looming to see Bucci uncover his creativity, magnificent diversity and talent as he sets off his career under the label which signed him in 2014.
“Worth the Wait”, to be officially launched at the Bassment Club in Blantyre on February 27, features Daredevilz, who are also behind production of some tracks, Home Grown African, members of Classmates and Street Fame.
The 20-track mixtape also boasts of productions from top Malawian urban music producers including Tricky Beatz, Yesaya, Black Eye, Gaffer and Bucci himself.
The concept behind “Worth the Wait” (WTW) is not about creating anticipation for his upcoming album per se, it is more about a futuristic twisted concept about life as a journey in general. Life throws roses and thorns at us allas human beings; with that said every person has a 50-50 chance of success or failure. So, life is basically waiting for our arrival based on the odds. Thereby the mixtape focuses on motivating everyone to make that wait worth it.
It contains breathtaking R&B, afro pop and a feel of house/dancehall music that will keep fans off their feet everywhere. “Worth the Wait” has a very interesting vibe that appeals to both young and old people.
Meanwhile, not to keep his fans ‘waiting’ for long, Buccihas added flavor to their playlists with the release of the mixtape’s first track titled “MCM”. The song went on radio Monday and is also available for downloads online: http://www.malawi-music.com/B/351-bucci/1369-mcm/3703-mcm.
