With the video for AmaBlesser closing in on four million views and audio streams for the song exceeding a couple of million, it’s no overstatement to say Mlindo The Vocalist is 2018’s breakout artist. The talented vocalist dropped his much anticipated debut album, Emakhaya and the 16 track album is a testament of great talent and even greater work ethic!

The latest single, Macala – which features Kwesta, Thabsie and Sfeesoh – has all the makings of a summer hit with its irresistible beat and vocal interplay on a song about forgetting all your troubles and heading for the club.
But the most striking feature of Macala is definitely Mlindo’s voice. Up front and centre stage, it is rhythmic, pure and full of melodic yearning, even on a track about “being lit on both sides”, as Mlindo puts it.
