Speaking on his latest project he explains he felt it was needed as there aren’t many artists spreading the message of self love in their music.
“Zithande is a mixtape about self love, I feel like there isn’t much positive music out in the world right now, promoting good vibes and reminding us to take care of ourselves. I decided to base the whole theme of it on self love. It really doesn’t sit well with me that a lot of people are just endorsing all this music that isn’t making them feel good,” he said.
The album has been doing the rounds on social media streets, with even publications like Afropunk and Slikouronlife picking up on it.
He said he has already begun working on visuals.
“We shot one last month and izophuma this month for my single titled ‘Ayashisa Amateku’, also submitting it to radio so people should request it on all their favourite radio stations, going to be doing some media runs to push the mixtape and maybe later on in the year I’ll be collaborating with other artists, touring the country and also ngithi shwi e-Europe ngyobanika this Zithande magic.”
While still building his brand in SA, Robin has already begun making a name for himself abroad performing in America, Switzerland, Lesotho, Mozambique and Swaziland.
Explaining Robin’s genre isn’t as straightforward as is with most genres. He explains his sound is a fusion of Kwaito and electronic music elements, packaged for Hip Hop.
“For me kwaito has always been something I loved and as a genre I grew up listening to at home so I naturally felt like I needed to fuse it into the type of music I make. I look up to various artists locally it’s guys like Okmalumkoolkat, K.O,Kwesta, AKA, Riky Rick and then abroad its guys like Tyler the Creator, Burna Boy, Wizkid, Childish Gambino, Skepta and ASAP Rocky.”
