De Mthuda Remains Soulful On New Album Offering “Story To Tell Vol.2”

Prolific South African music producer, Mthuthuzeli Gift Khoza, known widely by his stage name De Mthuda has delivered a soulful sequel to Story To Tell of 2020.

In this sequel, De Mthuda enlists powerful vocalists from some South African gems. De Mthuda is arguably one of the best amapiano musical artists on the mainstream roster right now, and some enjoy calling his sub-genre the private school version of Amapiano – Which is very synonymous with musical producer, Kelvin Momo. So in other words, in quality delivery, they withhold the same calibre.

On “Imizamo” (track 2), singer-songstress, Nobuhle captures shakiness that results in giving it your all but feeling like it’s all in vain. While the likes of Mthunzi, Sino Msolo, Ami Faku and Mnqobi Yazi explore the intricacies of romantic relationships.

Though the album opener “Sivulele” takes a turn into soothing African sounds, laced by the ethereal vocals of Mthunzi, for most of the project, De Mthuda’s take on Amapiano remains soulful and tethered to kwaito as he retains the genre’s trademark bassline and Korg M1 synthesiser-tinged sound that carries songs like “Mari Ye Phepha”, “Aveng’thanda” and “Imizamo”.
