Khuxxman’s sixth disco project
VETERAN disco musician Khulekani Bethule aka Khuxxman is back with another product that is set to rock the airwaves.
The eight-track disco album titled Makhushukhushu, a name borrowed from his moniker is due for release in two weeks’ time.
What makes the new product different is his decision to record it in Bulawayo after having recorded all his six disco albums in South Africa with the help of the late Dan Tshanda stable, which is a known hub of the genre.
“I am finalising my sixth disco project; we are just polishing it now. In two weeks’ time I hope it should be out, so what can only delay it are the logistics of releasing it.
“You know some of us are self-financed, so we have to do everything by ourselves, talk of CDs availability and promotions for the album,” Khuxxman told the Daily News.
The album was produced by Nash of Rock Up studios in the city.
“Since I recorded the disco album for the first time here, it’s certainly going to be different from the South African disco productions. I tried to bring a new flavour which I am confident most people will like,” he added.
The Vumelani Sangoma hit-maker further noted that he has taken his time to work on the project so as to bring out the best.
Songs to expect from the project include Uyangihlangisa — a love song, a remix of the popular song Divorce by tshibilika exponent Obadiah Mathulana and, remix and choral of Albert Nyathi’s hit song Senzeni.
Also on the album is Gweja, a reggae track Poor man, a gospel track Sizokhuleka, Imotho etshontsh imali, and a track for Bulawayo football giant Highlanders titled Ubuhle beBosso ngab landeli bayo.
While Khuxxman has six disco albums, he also has three afro-pop albums which include Ma Africa bambanani, Ngizohamba and Vumelani sangoma.
