Earlier this month, BigStar Johnson announced that he has inked a new record deal with Warner Music South Africa in conjunction with Vth Season and announced that his highly-anticipated debut album ‘Me & Mines’ releases everywhere on the 24th of August. In preparation for the album, the star has picked ‘Sgubu’ as the lead single off the project with a featured verse from Kwesta.
The star also premiered the video to the track which was shot in and around Soweto which references the legends who created the Kwaito sound in South Africa. The track premiered on Metro FM last week and was met with a string of rave reviews from fans who have been waiting for this project for a long time.
On the upcoming album, BigStar Johnson admits that “Currently I’m at a place where I’m the most comfortable I’ve ever been in the industry. And I’m finally at a place where I feel I can express myself. I’m hella excited about the future and what it holds for me.”
Raphael Benza of Vth Season adds that “Me & Mines is a true musical project that many will look back at and reference as a classic album. We’ve been on this journey with BigStar Johnson for 3 years and it’s a full circle moment for all of us at Vth Season to release his debut album.”
BigStar Johnson’s ‘Me & Mines’ album reflects where he’s currently at as a musician as well as in life. He found a home at Vth Season after winning the inaugural Vuzu Hustle in 2015 which has seen his journey and brand grow from captivating audiences in the East Rand to getting the attention of the who’s who in music in Cannes, France.
The star also revealed that he is expecting a daughter in the coming months. When asked what he is most excited about the rest of the year, the star tells us that “I’m most looking forward to meeting my daughter for the first time and seeing the world react to the type of music I love making.”
‘Sgubu’ is out everywhere right now.
