Speedy, one of the founding members of Afro pop music groups Bongo Maffin, has finished off his solo album that saw a number of Zimbabwean artists and producers making a debut.
Kwaito and R&B artist, Harold Matlhaku, Speedy to his fans, has more than two decades of experience in the music industry and has no plans of retiring anytime soon.
Known for his low-riding pants, shades, and a cap pulled to the side, he’s working on new music.
Speedy is set to drop his album no later than August.
“Where I am now in my life and career, I am not trying to compete with anybody, I am just doing music because I love it and I am just going to have fun with it,” he told the source.
The 25 tracks album is titled The Gift and features various popular artists such as Mafikizolo’s Nhlanhla Nciza, Ntando, Character, and Professor.
Working on this album, the Baphi hitmaker says he called on the people that he trusts and likes to feature on the album.
“My new album, The Gift is a fun project, I am not trying to chase anything,” he says.
While he’s been quiet, he is always working, Speedy says.
“For the past four years, I have been focused on Bongo Maffin, touring and now because the pandemic has paused a lot of things, I have shifted into my solo career and juggling being a solo artist on the side.”
His latest project with his group Bongo Maffin is an album titled From Bongo With Love, which was released in 2019.
And now, Speedy is focusing on his solo career. But that doesn’t mean he’s no longer a part of the group.
He’s been having fun with new music genres.
Last year, the Kwaito star teamed up with Professor for an amapiano track, Come Duze. This wasn’t the first time they had worked together. The two released Lento in 2010, which was an instant hit.
