It took three years to compose and record Sizalobuhle Nkomo otherwise known as Msiz’ Kay’s third album and it is ready to be dished out.
The National Art Gallery in Bulawayo is the place to be on 25 June as the Magwegwe West-bred muso will be launching his 18-track offering live on an unplugged session from 4pm to 7pm.
The name of the album is Sizalobuhle, which was inspired by his biological name.
On the album, he featured Mbo Mahocs, Hwabaraty, Mzoe 7, Bhekiwe, Awa Khiwe, Luchi Shiki, MJ Sings, CTL, Fab G, Cosmos Roinuj and La Dee.
A mother is a special gift in life; she has unconditional love towards her children and because of some of these factors, Msiz’ Kay dedicated his third album to his mother UmaMnkandla.
“This album is very close to me because it defines who Msiz’ Kay is. With this offering, I believe I have found my true sound that resonates with the Bulawayo music feel which most fans have been crying for.
“It’s a mature album which took three years to compose and record thanks to the Covid-19 lockdown which gave me more time. I worked with various artistes who are close to me and who have been there in my music journey.
“The dream to release this offering on 25 June at the National Art Gallery in Bulawayo has come to fruition because of their support.
“This is not just an album to me. It’s a special dedication to my mother UmaMnkandla who carried me for nine months in her womb and raised a gentleman in me.
“This is a manner of showing my love, affection and appreciation to her,” said Msiz’ Kay on a telephone interview from South Africa, where he is set to perform on a private gig.
In December last year, Msiz Kay held his “I Love Msiz’ Kay” recital and scores of people attended the well organised unplugged gig at the National Gallery in Bulawayo.
The gig was a litmus test to Msiz’ Kay’s production and stage team which was directed by doyen Simon Mambazo Phiri, and the findings were that the Ngawuz’ Umoya Wami hitmaker was ready for an even much bigger solo event.
Those who didn’t attend the “I Love Msiz’ Kay” concert are tipped to grace his third album launch as it is rare to witness such excellence on stage.
Advanced tickets for the Sizalobuhle launch are pegged at US$5 for a general ticket with the VIP tickets going for US$15.
At the door, general tickets will be sold at US$10 with the VIP session attracting US$20.
