Muvhango star Dingaan Khumalo is the latest actor to venture into music. Khumalo will launch his music career with an amapiano hit and he is working with a superstar producer. Although he says people are going to judge him, he is excited about his debut.

 

Speaking to SowetanLive, Dingaan Khumalo said he wanted to venture into amapiano to loosen up.

“For all my life, I have been this serious and tough guy. I felt it was time to do something different, something out of character that SA will enjoy. I know people are going to judge me because they do not expect me to be doing amapiano.”

He discovered his love for music at a young age. “The entire family was in the choir. I then discovered the late Eddie Zondi soul, jazz, and R&B music,” he added.

The 43-year-old actor has teamed up with Promise Sihle Tshabalala aka Bhubesi for his upcoming amapiano track. Bhubesi has worked with the likes of Sjava, Emtee and Ruff.

“I decided to work with him because he is passionate. I have noticed that he loves music and have seen that when we work together for Moja Love. These songs started with a freestyling while working together.”

The idea for the song came while Khumalo was in a business meeting.

“There was this lady that we all knew was beautiful. But she was flaunting her beauty not only to us men but also to women. She was told to sit down.”

The upcoming track is titled Gabadiya and the single is set to be released soon.
