A HIP-HOP artist from Imbali Unit 1, Nkosinathi “Razor” Ndlela (22), will relaunch his album titled Rayville next month at Broadway Lifestyle in Imbali.

Speaking to Echo, Ndlela said his album was released last year but feels it did not get the attention it deserved.

“It did not go abroad as we expected, and that is why my recording company, Pit Records, and I decided to relaunch it.”

He said he started his music journey at the age of 11 while he was still in primary school.

“I come from a music background. My mother was a vocalist and my father plays music instruments. I started singing at school and started recording songs in a studio in 2011. Since I do not have a voice to become a vocalist like my mother or play instruments like my father, I decided to take the route of hip-hop because it has become another means of communicating with the youth,” he said.

He said his album has 15 tracks and one of the songs is already playing on Channel O on DSTV, channel 320.

“This album is big. We want to re-introduce it to our people first. They have been with us every step of the way, supporting us, and that is why we feel that they deserve this launch.

“In this album I will introduce my fans to me,‘Razor’, as a person. I’ll take them through my journey and the challenges that I face while trying to make music, as well as my plans for the future in music. I want to inspire them with music and tell them not to give up,” he said.

He said that although he has a public management degree from Durban University of Technology, Riverside Campus, his passion is music and he wants to focus on it.
