Moozlie finally drops her debut offering, Victory
It’s a big day for Moozlie today as the multi-talented rapper and presenter dropped her much anticipated debut album, Victory. Victory is Moozlie’s way of introducing herself in the game as a formidable force to be reckoned with. At the same time, it’s also cementing the work that she has already put in.
Recorded entirely at the Red Bull Studios, the 14 track offering features the likes of Rouge, AKA, Yanga and Youngsta CPT to name a few in joints where Moozlie shows off her writing skills. She goes ham in tracks like Rap Therapy, Vatel and See The Sun. But also soft and wise in Victory and Be Somebody. She also showed her chilled and playful side with Swipe featuring Gemini Major.
Moozlie features variety of producers who helped her make her vision for this album possible
She also features up and coming producers who are making their own way in the game and the result is that they gave her beautiful beats that she could play around with.
“I needed people to understand the musicality in my mind and I feel like you can hear that in all the beats that I selected.”
We recently attended the listening session for Victory at the Red Bull studios. She spoke to us about the offering as well as why she decided to drop the album now.
“The album is called Victory and basically the name is self-explanatory man. It’s about celebrating where I am right now and where it is I hope to be in the future.”
She mentions that when she first started this album, she thought it was going to have heavy Afro-beats influences. She says: “But the first album is really about what you as a rapper have to say so I kinda had to stop the dancing, stop the fly shit and get to the rap shit.”
Victory is a full and balanced body of work which highlights Moozlie’s growth and authenticity as an artist. It’s currently available for purchase on all major digital stores.

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!
