Tay Grin, the Malawian superstar who was recently in SA shooting the fizzy video to his latest single ‘Tola’, has announced that the smash hit that features Tanzanian diva Vanessa Mdee will drop Monday, 20 March.
It will be a double release as the multi-award winning Nyau King is set to drop both the audio track and visuals of the highly-anticipated sassy song on the same date. The video release is exclusive to TRACE Africa and the audio will premiere on radios across Malawi and the rest of Africa.
‘Tola’ is a dance song produced by Malawian hit producer Sonyezo and the top-notch video, which is expected to take the continent by storm, was directed by the prolific Nigerian Sesan Ogunro, one of Africa’s greatest video directors.
“It’s an A list team on this project. It was fire all over in the studio as we made the audio, fire as we made the video and now it’s that time we unleash that fire. 2017 is fire everywhere. We are taking Malawi to the world in HD,” Tay Grin speaks of his upcoming release.
Tay Grin and Vee Money teamed up on the first day of this year to record ‘Tola’ when the Tanzanian vocalist was in Malawi for the New Year’s Party in Lilongwe on December 31, organized by Grin’s Black Rhyno Entertainment.
The Malawian star has been in the spotlight after putting out his 2016 smash hits ‘Chipapapa’ feat 2Baba, ‘Kanda’ ft Sonyezo and Nigerian Orezi as well as ‘Sugar Mami’ ft Sonyezo and Zambia’s Roberto.
The new song is coming out as the Malawian mega musician is billed to perform at Iceland’s largest music festival Secret Solstice in June alongside global music superstars among them Rick Ross, Big Sean, Pharoahe Monch, Chaka Khan and Young M.A.
Tay Grin is the first Malawian to be enlisted to perform at the festival and is the only artist from Africa billed to entertain the fans with pure African music.
