WATCH: Anthony Hamilton Speaks About Latest Album & His Love For S.A



We recently attended the Anthony Hamilton press conference ahead of his Woman’s Day shows in the country. This is not the first time that he has blessed our shores as he has been here several times before. DStv hosted a press conference for the multi-award winning Soul artist where we asked him about his love for South Africa, his thoughts on Aretha Franklin’s passing as well as his other interests.

Although he has been in the country before, this time around the reason for the visit wasn’t just the music though. Instead it was more on his humanitarian side. “We visited some of the orphanages, loved on the kids and gave our support. We came here this time to really bless the people with the music from the new album.”

He spoke about what he finds charming about South Africa and how he always finds himself here.

“I like it here because I see so many people that look like me.  That look like me, my family, my cousins…”

He even learned how to speak a little isiZulu to show how much he loves his fans here in South Africa. 

He also spoke about how Aretha Franklin’s influence and how her music and legacy influenced generations of musicians such as Fantasia and Jazmine Sullivan. Check out the interview.

WATCH Cassper Nyovest on Universal Music Deal: “This is not me selling my soul”



WATCH Cassper Nyovest Breaks Down Family Tree’s partnership With Universal Music

Cassper Nyovest did the unthinkable last week when he announced that his record label, Family Tree, has signed a partnership deal with one of the biggest record labels in the country, Universal Music. We have already run the story and the response to this huge and unconventional decision.

We sat down with Cassper Nyovest and asked him to break down the deal. He hesitated to say much about but he assured us that more will be revealed in time. “Well it’s the first announcement to a lot of announcements. We’ve got a lot of partnerships that we’re working on, me and Universal. And yeah, I’m excited about that”, he says.

He continued to explain that it is not Cassper the artist signing to Universal Music Group but instead it is his entire label, Family Tree who are going to be working with Universal.  So in essence, he still is the boss and still owns 100% of his music and publishing.

“Universal doesn’t have any control over how Family Tree is run. Obviously they will make suggestions as they are our partner but the final decision on creativity and how stuff is still up to me. I still own 100% of my music. So this is not me selling my company or selling my soul or anything. The contract is good.”

He also stressed that him deciding to take this deal was because he felt like he has done what he could with his label and now he wanted to reach new shores and achieve new milestones; on a global level.

“Even if I sell triple platinum as an indie label, it’s not growth. I want to be able to have a platinum record in Kenya, have a platinum record in Nigeria. For me to do that I need people who are actually living there, who have offices there to come and push the music.”

It’s safe to say that Cassper Nyovest is looking at global domination with this deal!
