Johannesburg-based and high-flying maskandi musician, Tshepo UMsamanzi "UKhonolakhe" has completed recording his yet to be named debut album.

The much-awaited 12-tracked album features songs like RIP Chappies- a track dedicated to the late friend and fellow talented musician Bhejane Obomvu, Vuka baba, Bhula mngoma, Langelihle, Akhala emabili, Ma KaMxolisi, Intombiyabelungu, Ama careless and Eskhoveni among others.

The 26-year-old Msamanzi UKhonolakhe is famed for his two singles "Intombi Yabelungu" and "Dear Mapressa" which were released in 2019.

"I am so much pleased that I have managed to complete working on my upcoming album," said UMsamanzi UKhonolakhe.

"The much awaited album is set to be launched on the 30th of November. Many people have been pushing me to record this album and I am certain they will be pleased with my work. I have seen a lot of people engaging on social media platforms like Facebook, Whatsapp, Twitter and Instagram about my album after getting rumours that I am recording. It is the right time for me to confirm to them that what they are anticipating is complete now. I am finalising some few things and then from there, they will have the food for their ears. The album will also be available on digital stores for everyone to buy."

Msamanzi UKhonolakhe also disclosed that in some of his tracks he featured some Zimbabwean artists.

"As a young musician I always believe that we learn things from those who have been in the industry. So I decided to feature some artists in my tracks as a way of modifying what I produced. I believe this will give depth to my songs. I would appeal to all fans out there to support me as a young man out to make them happy," added the flamboyant fine artist who was also recently nominated for MAMA Awards (Mzansi Arts & Music Awards).

The voting for MAMA Awards is still open and ends later this month.

For his secondary education he went to St Gabriel' Education Centre - boarding school in Bulawayo. He also attended Sikhulile High School before raping up his secondary education at Nswazi High School.
