WATCH Ma Nala Chats New Music & Working With Her Brother, Anatii



When Ma Nala first came into the scene we were pleasantly surprised to see that she is just as talented if not more than her brother, Anatii. Over the months though she has proven that she is her own person who is ready for the world to accept and embrace her talent.

Earlier on in the week we were invited to Ma Nala’s showcase. The sultry soul singer was performing some of the music that she has been working on over the last couple of months.

“So I was working on an EP but then I was not sure which direction I wanted it to go. I was just letting things be organic and genuine. So the first three songs I did were songs I wrote whilst in the States. I’ve been working with my brother Anatii and big Les who produces some of his stuff so yeah, it’s been organic and beautiful”. 

She released her single, Soze late last year which gave us a glimpse into the type of writer she is. She makes very soulful music which has it’s grips in both the global and South African sound. 

For Ma Nala, working with Anatii has it’s rewards

She also spoke to us about what it’s like working with her brother Anatii. “…sometimes we clash in the studio, it’s a brother and sister thing. You get along and sometimes you don’t get along but we make beautiful music together; that’s how Soze came about.” She also spoke about how they feed off each other’s creative energy. 

“He’s like a mentor to me because he’s been in the industry for like 10 years so I’m learning everything from him” 

Today, she dropped her new single titled Forever which features and was produced by superstar artist, Gemini Major.

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!
