Mampintsha just piled on with his recent announcement. The multi-award winning artist and producer has announced that he is leaving the music industry. The Amaketanga hit maker took to Instagram to upload a five-part video in which he explains why he took this drastic decision.
He started off the video by telling his fans that he has been reflecting on his time in the industry and the multiple hits he has produced over the years. He also noted that a lot of people are not happy and the atmosphere in the music industry is not a pleasant one at all.
“It is evident that things are not pleasant anymore and you can see that even when things are posted, there is no support”.
Mampintsha is leaving music to peruse other things
He explains that he doesn’t want to name names but has seen that he should let everything lose. “So I thought that I may as well make people happy this year and reveal what is in my heart. Reveal all the bombs.” He assured his fans that he greatly appreciates their love and support and asked them to not think that he is giving up in any way.
“I was thinking that this should be the last year in the music industry. I should go and focus on other things on the side.”
He stressed that there are certain people who are not happy with his presence in the music industry. He also mentions that they have excessively sampled him but fail to even show basic manners such as greeting him when they run into him. “All the songs you’ve heard have sampled me but they fail to even greet me when they run into me”.
Before he retires, he is dropping two new songs
He also revealed that he will be dropping two new tracks along with videos which will be accompanying them.
“I am releasing Phakamisa on Friday and then the week after next, I will be releasing the last bonus track. Both these songs will have videos accompanying them as the Phakamisa one has already been shot. And with all of this, I will say thank you to my fans and bow out.”
Lastly, he announced that he will be leaving the music thing to Babes Wodumo who he describes as ‘indlovukazi”. Although, Mampinstsha announced that he is leaving the industry, he alluded to not staying underground forever.
Who knows, maybe the industry will be pleasant enough for him to drop a new album in the future. For now, let’s give the man some space.
ICYMI: Sho Madjozi Dropped A Short Film Yesterday Titled Trickshot
Sho Madjozi is a supernatural Tsonga empress in new movie Trickshot
Yesterday marked the release of Tsonga rapper Sho Madjozi short film Trickshot that features music from the critically acclaimed debut album Limpopo Champions League.
The film celebrates love and basketball and is being delivered on Valentine’s day to her supporters as a gift of love. Sho Madjozi is currently in Charlotte, NC to participate in the NBA All-Star Weekend as an ambassador for NBA Africa.
The film short, written and directed by Garth Von Glehn and starring Sho Madjozi, was shot in downtown Johannesburg. Glehn says:
“This is a film about a rural girl with special powers. Her powers exist for the most part undiscovered, but hints of them shine through in her superhuman accuracy, throwing all manner of things into weird and wonderful goals.”
Best known for her Xitsonga lyrics and vibrant fashion, in December 2018 Sho Madjozi launched her debut album Limpopo Champions League. She also launched her debut clothing collection with Edcon Fashion in 22 Edgars Fashion stores in South Africa.
Limpopo’s Champion’s League is a celebration of being young and African
The debut album is aptly titled Limpopo Champions League. It’s a 13-track album which sounds like a celebration of being young and African. The song Kona, in which Sho Madjozi sings that Tsonga people belong everywhere, is an exhilarating affirmation of her Tsonga culture.
While the lively track Don’t Tell Me What to Do, is fun and talks about being a carefree African girl. Acclaimed Nigerian artist YCee is featured on party track Wakanda Forever.
