Giving up-and-coming artists a chance

2018-07-17 06:01

SOUTH African Music Award winner Sfiso Mjoli, popularly known as DJ Fisherman, recently released a single called Glama, after four years.

Fever journalist Phindile Shozi had a chat with him to find out more about the single and what he is up to.

PS: When was the last time you released a single?

SM: I last released a single in 2014.

PS: What took you so long to release a song?

SM: I consider myself a perfectionist and I really respect my audience’s ear and I want to always make a mark with my songs.

PS: When are you releasing an album?

SM: I’m working on it right now and maybe by December I’ll release it.

PS: How many tracks will the album have?

SM: Well, I have many songs, but I’m hoping for 10 because there’s going to be a twist with those tracks. Five will be a different fusion to the other five and I’m doing that because I don’t want my audience to listen to one and the same thing in one album.

PS: Who can the public expect to see featured on your album?

SM: I won’t feature many known artists because I want to give up-and-coming artists a chance to introduce themselves to the public. They can also expect DJ Bongs, Mampintsha and Efelow.

PS: Why did you choose to feature three known artists on your album?

SM: As you’ve said yourself, they are known and also getting old. We won’t be here forever but the music industry will still be alive with new artists. That’s the reason I chose to work with unknown artists so that they can carry on with the legacy as they are the future.

PS: What can you say to the public regarding your single?

SM: Well, they will be surprised that my sound has changed since my last single.

This one has a sound of Gqom and electro because I want people to experience the fusion that’s never been heard before.

Also, it has a message that there are several different glamorous women out there and as they listen to it they will work it out themselves what kind of glamorous category they fall under.
