Musician Manu WorldStar took the South African music industry by storm after releasing his hit-single, NaLingi last year – and now, the 25-year-old star is set to release his debut album titled MOLIMO today (18 September, 2020).

Speaking to TRUELOVE, Manu WorldStar explained the inspiration behind the album which features the biggest names in South African music such as Sjava, Rouge, Anati, Rowlene as well as Focalistic.

"MOLIMO means 'My Spirit' in my mother tongue, Lingala. I chose this name because I felt this body of work defines and reflects the deepest desires and thoughts that come not from my mind, but from my spirit,” he tells us.
