In this project, Khanyisa takes us on a journey through her life experiences with sing-along lyrics, with the hard and iconic amapiano log-drum South Africans and the world have come to love. The EP will also see vocal collaborations with the genre’s pioneers (Lady Du, Sir Trill & Sino Msolo) and has an all-around emotional feel (love, heartbreak & happiness), that will get you through whatever her listeners are dealing with.
“I can’t wait to share these stories with you guys, as you know I am a singer/songwriter, storyteller. I hope you do relate or see yourself in maybe all of or some of the songs. I can’t wait to share the experiences and all of the amazing artists that are featured on this EP.”- Khanyisa enthuses about release of her second EP, “Halfway”.
