“Staying true to the Skhanda sound means, I don’t need to be constantly updating it or giving it a current feel, which is what I did with this new album. Those who know the first chapter of Skhanda Republic, will know that there was a lot of kwaito influence which was the wave back then. Music as a whole inspired this album, I have retained those elements that make my sound distinctly mine.” – K.O
