“COVID-19 was a tough experience yet rewarding with so many lessons. My condolences and sympathy goes to those who lost a loved one or were affected in any way by this terrible pandemic. I had different plans but I am fortunate to still be able to release this body of work in 2020. I have a vision that I need to see through and that’s going to come with a shift in the direction I am taking musically. I’ve been blessed to contribute immensely to the South African Hip Hop scene and greater music industry. Now it’s time for me to take my career as an artist and producer to the next level after this project” says the multi-platinum selling producer and artist.
Slum Kid is scheduled for release on the 27th November 2020 and the first single ‘Action Figure’ featuring AKA is out today plus you can preorder the EP right now.
