ZimkithA SouL debuts her very first solo album titled 9 Lives: The Blacklisted Woman during the Winter of 2018. This debut album promises to be more than just music; it will be an experience of fired up Afro hip hop, Electro, Funk and Soul. However before the album, ZimkithA SouL offers Zamandlovu: The EP which was recently released in an intimate listening at the Plat4orm in Johannesburg.
Born Zimkitha Kumbaca, songstress ZimkithA SouL hails from King William’s Town and she is a freelance actress, playwright, singer, director and music composer who graduated in 2010 for a Diploma in Drama and completed her B-TECH in Drama and Film Studies at the Tshwane University of Technology in 2012.
Her journey in music began officially in 2005 with a band named Ginger Alibi when she was discovered by Lengolo aka Mad Kind during a local poetry session in Pretoria and she then later joined Travellin’ Blak in 2008. ZimkithA SouL’s solo music career officially began in 2015 when she released and launched her debut EP offering Many Colours Of The Soul towards the end of 2015.
This new project is a mixture of genres and an exploration of sounds that explore the topics of love, fun, happiness, self-acceptance, sadness and loss. Yonkinto is the first single to be taken from Zamandlovu: The EP and features dynamic artist, Razor Da Kid. She also enlisted the talents of Cyber Beatz and Lynxboi Beatz who handled the production on the song.

NEW MUSIC: Eastern Cape Rapper, Nate, Drops Gotta Get It Ft. MSA
Self proclaimed South Coast King, Hip Hop sensation, Nate, has dropped new single for his fans titled Gotta Get It. This is the second single to come from the charismatic rapper and it features his frequent collaborator and producer, MSA.
What exactly is Gotta Get It about?
Gotta Get It, produced by MSA, is a song about overcoming life struggles and making Mom proud through the trials and tribulations of chasing the dream. Nate once again shows his skills both as a hook master accompanied by the impeccable delivery of flawless verses.
The MSA produced beat serves as a fitting canvass for Nate’s message and hunger to succeed. The Trap inspired and fast paced beat is a perfect head banger and we have to admit that MSA and Nate are often a great pair on any song. Plus this type of song is what we have known Nate to produce in the past.
Nate has quite an impressive resume which stretches over the past couple of years he has been making music. He has released a number of singles which have highlighted his growing musical skill, effortless flows and catchy hooks. The Trap influenced Rolly and the laid back Friendzone featuring Zola and Ngeke Balunge are just a few of his songs. Plus his growing fan base cannot get enough of him!
Bringing a fresh approach in the music scene with his authentic trap flows, a lot can be expected from Nate this year. We can expect new music as well as his debut album in the last quarter of 2018.
Keep up to date to with Nate on his social media, @nate_rsa, for more updates on his music.
