Hitmaker Sonyezo has produced a summer anthem with Nigerian star Ric Hassani, and Nyau King Tay Grin titled ‘MAMA’ set to be released worldwide on July 12, 2017.
The three teamed up together to record the anthem during Hassanis tour in 2016 and subsequently kept exchanging correspondence on fine-tuning the final mix.
Ric Hassani was invited to Malawi by DJ Cool where he gave star studded performances at Blue Elephant in Blantyre and Discorium in Lilongwe.
Sonyezo says MAMA is a co owned song with “a tropical house meets afrobeat feel. It’s world music”.
The Lokolo hit maker says the collaborative effort has taken time to be released because of the need to give spaces between all the singles the artists have putting out and this one was meant to be released during summer because it has a summer feel going on.
“So summer is coming and this is the anthem” he adds with enthusiasm.
MAMA will be available on all digital platforms like iTunes Google play with date for video being announced after the audio release.
Sonyezo and Tay Grin have also been working with Zambian star Jay Rox.
Sonyezo confirms “We’ve been working a lot with Jay Rox recently. We have about 3 songs. Two by the 3 of us and 1 is Jay Rox and me. It’s still in the pipe line”
The latest to come out is TAWE which will be out soon.
As one the hardest working producers in the country, now stretching his tentacles on the continent, Sonyezo explains what keeps his juices flowing
“My inspiration comes from other hard working musicians I surround myself with and great music from around the world has always been my main inspiration”.
On June 4th, Sonyezo put out Lokolo, another summer anthem that is getting good reviews both in Malawi and the outside world where he has set his eyes on.
Aside putting a slew of hit songs, Sonyezo is working on giving back to the community by joining hands with Lions Club of Kasungu in sourcing funds for building school blocks.
“The Lions Club project is about giving back to the community. I was approached by the club members to be part of this life changing project for the school pupils at Mtunthama primary school who don’t have a proper classroom and still learn under a tree. We are aiming to build a classroom for them before the rainy season which is September. Well wishing organisation and individuals can contact the Lions Club of Kasungu to assist in this project” says Sonyezo.
